Summer Sweatsuit from Sew DIY

This vintage-inspired top and shorts set is equally suited to warm weather play or lounging around!

The Summer Sweatsuit from Sew DIY consists of a racer back tank with a curved hem and mid-rise short shorts. The tank top has a full coverage racer back style with a medium-scoop neck and curved hem. This cute tank top is fitted at the bust, and skims over the waist and hips.

The shorts feature an elastic waistband and a high cut curved leg opening. There are no side seams in the shorts, making them extra comfortable on sensitive skin. If short-shorts aren’t your thing, the pattern shows you how to lengthen the legs of the shorts to give more coverage! The tank top and shorts are quick-to-make. This sewing pattern has a close fit and requires knit fabric with stretch.

Make the tank top in light- to medium-weight knit fabrics with at least 20% two-way stretch. These include jersey, bamboo, and modal knits. While you should make the shorts in medium-weight knit fabrics that have more than 35% four-way stretch. Choose jersey, French terry, athletic or Ponte knit fabrics.
