If you follow my blog or other social media posts you know I have a thing for pockets. That's a given. Something else I have quite the obsession with is open back tops to show off my interesting sports bras and bralettes. The more straps a bra has the better, and I want to be able to show those off! I did a super simple hack on the Telluride Top from New Horizon's Designs in order to turn a basic shirt pattern into an open back top! (I say "basic shirt pattern", but the Telluride is actually far from basic!! Its packed with options, I just used the basic options for this hack!) I wanted to make 2 versions, one in athletic fabric to wear for working out and one in a bright print to pair with jeans! My athletic fabric is from Hobby Lobby. (And its awesome! I just went back and bought it in 2 more colors because its an excellent weight and was super easy to sew with!) The bright printed Paisley is from So Sew English fabrics. I originally bought it to make leggings with, but I changed my plan and opted for a fun t-shirt instead. I love all the colors in it, and decided to use some solid black ribbing for the cutout and neck binding for a little contrast. I wrote up a quick tutorial on how I did this hack, which you can find on the New Horizon's blog!
