In March I’m hosting an activewear sew-along #stitchactitvewear and of course, I’m planning to make some garments myself as well. So in this video, I share all about my plans which has me remaking (and improving!) some old faves, including a workout top with a built-in bra that I loved until it fell apart. I’m also making a pair of Aila leggings using the same fabric that I did for one of my samples while developing the pattern.
Speaking of the Aila leggings, there will be very in-depth sew-along on the blog for the Aila in March if you want to join, where I expand on a lot of bonus info, such as stretch stitches, fabric choices, notions and of course photographed step-by-step instructions.
Now the Aila pattern sewing instructions are already very detailed for being a leggings sewing pattern, but I’ve managed to come up with even more useful info for the sew-along. And of course, you’ll be able to follow along and learn lots of things even if you are sewing another leggings pattern in March. Or are sewing with stretchy knit fabrics in general.
