I’ve spent the last few months sewing a 5-piece activewear collection, and now finally, all the pieces are done! This collection is way more colourful than my normal workout gear, it wasn’t really intentional but I’ve managed to score more colourful activewear fabrics locally lately, and that obviously has impacted my makes.
I’m actually at a point now that most of the clothes I wear when working out is sewn by me. For me it’s about having garments that fits and also a creative outlet, where I can also experiment with a lot of techniques that one usually don’t use in regular dressmaking.
I’ve been making my own activewear for almost 15 years, and I keep finding new things that I want to try out. So again, this collection is a round of firsts, such as sewing a highly supportive sports bra and using new construction techniques. Hope you enjoy the video and perhaps find it inspiring too to make your own activewear!
