Since my sewing is on hold for a while, I have more time for blogging. And that’s a great opportunity to talk a bit about sewing workout wear. It’s something I enjoy and also want to encourage others to do. It’s really easy and can also save you a lot of money (unlike many other sewing projects) since high end workout wear often cost a small fortune in stores
The top is more than six years old and shows no sign of wear whatsoever.You can get great wickaway fabrics at a low cost from many on-line fabric stores. They sell the same fabrics that the big name manufacturers use and the fabrics I bought five-six years ago still holds up, unlike the cheapo workout wear from chain stores that starts to pill and wear down in less than a year
So here are my best resources for sewing workout wear:
Favorite pattern makers:
Favorite fabric stores:
Please note that I have not ordered from these stores for a while (due to my long exercise hiatus), but in the past the service and quality has always been great. I especially love RCT and RW for their huge range of functional fabrics.

Best overall resource:
The stuff I have made myself are really simple designs as you can see. Also, most of the workout clothes that I own were made several years ago when I had just bought my serger and was less proficient. But of course there are options for those who likes to bring more fashion to their workout gear. Burda magazine for instance have really cool designs on some of their workout patterns.
