I had altered the lydia pattern to make a sports shirt but had yet to try it out. I needed a swim shirt, after having gotten sunburnt, so I decided to try it out. It worked great.
All I did was bring in the pattern a size or two so that it would fit snugly but not be too tight, shorten the sleeves and alter the neck line so it went to a V shape. Unfortunately the neck needs to be altered (slightly bigger) and I was glad I found this out now before making a few sports shirts with it. The lydia shirt was a good pattern to use as it has a good length to it.
2 way stretch lycra I picked up at a real bargin ages ago (fill a bag for $5)
