Video: Sewing the ultimate workout wardrobe

Let’s talk sewing activewear! In my latest sewing vlog I talk about my plans for making a mini workout wardrobe where I gel all the stuff I learned through trial and errors and hopefully merge all that into a kickass mini activewear wardrobe.

In the video I also talk about some garments I’ve made previously:

The Pneuma Tank Top from Papercut Patterns 

Yoga top with mesh insert

Flower print leggings with mesh inserts 
And the fabric vendor Stoff and Stil that I talk about in the video sells their fabrics to Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Norway and the UK

    Johanna I am such an unabashed fan of yours! I can’t thank you enough for all your guidance and video instructions! I too have trouble finding just the right hoodie! That’s honestly my biggest problem in purchased RTW – for different reasons – I’m tall (5’8″) and my measurements are 41.5 – 36 – 41.5 a perfect rectangle 😉 and most hoodies ride up and are just not big/long enough! If I jump a size or 2 they are then too big and the waist band isn’t tight enough and they just hang like sacks looking sloppy and sad 🙂 So I’m now working on hoodies! I have a Jalie and McCall’s patterns to start with and some lovely 100% cotton excellent quality fleece (from Thread Theory here in Canada) once I have the pattern developed just right. I am a bit of a work-out junkie too 🙂 not anything close to you but I do like a daily brisk walk and I do pilates and Yamuna regularly as well. I am excited to see your outfits unfold!! You’re such an inspiration.

      Yamuna, I had to google that! Sounds very intriguing, is it more comfortable than foam rolling? I find rolling beneficial but kinda painful, so I tend avoid it, even though my body feels better when I do it regularly. Cool to hear that you are working on perfecting the hoodie, the great thing about getting a hoodie pattern right is that you can use it forever, since it’s such a timeless design. Plus it’s a fun and fairly uncomplicated project to do!
