Well I needed a new yoga-top since the one I made pulls my neck too much (it’s a halter-neck), not good since I’m an OL (office-lady) during the days which results in a tense neck and back. No extra neck tension needed!
So here’s bikram-yoga-top version 2.
It’s loosely based on a top by Shakti Activewear , a brand popular among Bikram-yogis, so I’ve seen the top live and in action several times. I liked the way the ties of their cross-back-top run criss-cross around the back/shoulders, but the front is too covered for me (hey, that’s an advantage with small boobies, lower cuts are more ok!).
No pattern was used, I made two square pieces for the cups, stitched darts to give them shape, and pinned them to the desired shape while wearing them (loads of pins!).
Finally a photoshoot full of energy after a day full of surprises, with one of my favourite playlists (at Spotify, it’s right here ) in the speakers of my stereo = I couldn’t resist climbing!
The shorts are the ones I made in my last yoga-wear-project. If anyone’s wondering why the clothes are so small: they’re meant for Bikram Yoga which is performed in a really warm room = everyone wears clothes similar to these :-)
