Sewing Indie Month: Hacking Fehr Trade's Xyt Workout Top

XYT Workout Top - A pattern hack by Closet Core Patterns

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I am super excited to share a pattern tutorial/hack I did for Sewing Indie Month. I partnered up with the multi-talented Melissa at Fehr Trade and put a Closet Core spin on her beautifully designed XYT workout top. You can read all the nitty gritty details of the process on her blog here.

L'homme and I had a swell time taking pictures of it this weekend. SPRING HAS FINALLY SPRUNG IN MONTREAL!!!

I used the same binding technique on the XYT that I do for Nettie. I'll be going over this process in much more detail during the Nettie sewalong.
