Eliminate underarm irritation with a top that has no side seams! This boxy workout top comes in two versions - a sleeveless Tank or a Tee with your choice of two sleeve lengths. Both are loose fitting and a feature banded neckline, with further armhole bands accentuating the unique back seaming on the Tank version.
This pattern is suitable for beginners, however, some garment sewing experience is expected. Further advice is available in our "Activewear Sewing for Beginners" eBook.

I am a long-distance runner and also a sewist - I've long been disappointed by the quality and fit of exercise clothing available on the market, so I've been sewing my own for the past few years - even running seven full marathons in my own-sewn gear! All my digital sewing patterns have been road-tested by myself and a team of fellow fit sewists.
