Pure Barre Shirt - Done!

But first, a couple of leftover Mardi Gras pics. This is a bunch of strangers doing The Wobble in front of Lafitte's.

And here's a pretty pic of the Superdome.

Now to the shirt. I took 3 XXL T-shirts I found at an outlet joint and cut them up for this.

Used the same pattern as my Mardi Gras dress - the fitted top/tunic/dress.

I wanted to play with open-felling seams, but those aren't too stable, so I did this parallel whipstitch down them, and loved how the knots looked on the outside.

I only had enough red thread for one seam and the bindings, but this is a workout top, so who the heck cares?

Oh, and my spur of the moment purchase - 2 pairs of leggings at Walgreen's for $10 apiece - fun!

Don't worry, I won't wear them in public...wait, is Pure Barre public?

Fun! I've been obsessed with lululemon myself for tights! I love your tights and top -- Congratulations on a fun and functional result!

OH, I've heard about lululemon, but haven't tried them yet. Pure Barre also sells these miracle leggings that create a firm rear end, but I hate shelling out $100 when I can make them myself...

Nope, Pure Barre isn't public.

And the parking lot (next to Loft, Coldwater Creek, Talbots, etc.) is not really public either!
