The reflective tape is used on the front and back panel seams.
It’s odd when you sew wovens and knit fabrics together
Here’s a close up of the finished back pocket with a secure pocket on the right hand seam.
This new cycling version is certainly smaller and more fitted than the test version – just like a RTW cycling jersey.
Last Saturday I road tested this jersey in the heat. When I say road test I mean a 52km ride that went for more than 2 hours on the road.
|You can see how well the back pocket sits in the right position.|
The sky was overcast but it was quite humid. There was no additional breeze but cycling does provide a breeze.

I was on the road by 6am which is considered late by some keen cyclists. I usually get home in time to have breakfast with Mr V.
This Stormset cycling jersey is a keeper for Summer training. The fit is great for riding and the fabric is light, supportive and provides good sun protection.
Thanks Melissa for this pattern. You’re really thorough with your testing process.
Thank you Funki Fabrics for this fabric and all the fabrics I’ve been provided with. I’m so thankful to be using such good quality lycra.
