Jazz Up July - Activewear Tops

I made these activewear vest top and crop top since the beginning of the month and wore them sometimes for exercise (yoga) at home. These garments are my entry for "Jazz Up July" #magamsewalong hosted by @suestoney,  @sewing_in_spain and @hportemanteu

For the fabrics, I used blue and black medium weight jersey knits from old and new stashes. The fabric suggestion from the pattern is four-way stretch fabric but I only have medium weight and I think it's fine.
And for the pattern, I used "Sew Your Own Activewear" book by Melissa Fehr. Both vest top and crop top are based on close-fitting top block pattern, I used size XS with size L for the waistline and M for the hips.
Firstly I made a basic tank top and then I worked on the vest top and crop top. All modifications are written with step by step and pictures. I love this book and planning to make more garments (jacket, leggings and tops).

Boxy T-shirt

Hi, I made a new boxy t-shirt based on Burdastyle pattern and I wore it last weekend. I love it, so cozy and perfect for hot weather. The fabric was a meter of remnant animal print that I found during our trip to Taipei last year.
The pattern suggested to use 1.35 meters of fabric but as I had 1 meter only, I made the sleeves shorter and also shorten the t-shirt length just below my waistline.

Burdastyle Culottes and T-shirts

Hello,
I sewed three garments for myself last month, two t-shirts and culottes for everyday wear. I was planning to sew more separate garments since last year but always distracted with pretty dresses, so I'm glad that I managed to sew these t-shirts and culottes.
I used Burdastyle patterns and stashed fabrics, sewing notion (zipper, thread, and interfacing) also from stash.

Men's Button-Down Shirts

Hello, I sewed two shirts for DH to wear at work and glad he loved them. The red shirt with tiny brown stripes was made last year and the white shirt with grey stripes was made a few weeks ago. Both fabrics were cotton shirting from the local shop and stayed a while in my stash.
