Stand out comfortably in an eye-catching athleisure look. The flared top is loose-fitting and has asymmetrical details: contrast panels and, on views A and C, an angled hem that is longer on the right side. The sleeve options are a cut-on cap sleeve or a full-length sleeve with cuffs. The neckline is finished with a self-fabric band. The pants are close-fitting, pull-on, and ankle-length, with an elastic waistband that sits at the natural waist. They are also cinched at the ankle with elastic. The pants have contrasting side panels. Pockets are set in the side-front seams. All the notches and match points line up and included illustrations are accurate. Study the cutting layout, as some pieces are cut in a double layer and some in a single layer. Look for fabric with at least 35 percent stretch. Fabric choices for the top are lightweight knits, such as jersey. For the pants, cotton interlock, activewear knits, and ponte are appropriate choices.
