Sequin running vest

I drafted the basic knit bodice block from Metric Pattern Cutting, and then altered it into a snazzy new running singlet. The hardest part by far was attaching the binding. I bought a binder attachment for my coverstitch machine, but there’s such a high learning curve that I must’ve gone through 50 feet of test binding before I was getting good results! But now I’ve got the practice in, there’s no stopping me!

Material Notes

All fabrics from my stash! Ex-Prada trompe l’oeil sequin print jersey, dark turquoise “silk touch” lycra, and purple Suziplex for the binding.

    Okay, you are so dressing up exercising by using sequin fabric, that now I’m going to have to do the same. LOL

    What a cute design and needless to say awesome fabrics! I totally understand the struggle with the binding and the time to get it just right. Well done!

    Happy sewing!

      Thanks so much! I just loved that trompe l’oiel sequin fabric so much that I couldn’t throw away even such a small piece. I try to glam up running gear as much as I can – stretch lace is my other trick. ;)
