Jalie Sports Bra

You know it's winter when you need extra blankets to keep you warm. The hardest thing about winter, for me, has always been to get to the gym. It is just so tempting to skip working out to lounge around the house. To help me stay on track, I wanted to make some new sports bras. I had been eyeing the Jalie 2563 for a long time and finally decided to invest on this pattern.
I finished view A using donated African print swimwear fabric. Here's a look:

The pattern was easy to trace, cut, and sew. This was my wearable muslin, so I will be adding full lining to both front and back pieces. I think adding full lining will polish up the inside of the bra. Also, I will be lowering the neckline to fit tank tops. I have an idea to make my sports bra give the illusion that I have bigger ta-tas through strategic color blocking and cutting. More on that later...
I will let you know how this sports bra holds up when I'm running on the treadmill, doing zumba, or practicing yoga.
