Pro Methods for Sewing Activewear

Threads magazine - 190 - April/May 2017 Issue
Article Image
With smart fabric choices, design options, and finishing techniques, you can have workout gear that’s customized to your favorite athletic activity-whether you’re competing for a gold medal or just hiking in your local park. Garments worn during exercise must hold up under stress and repetitive motions for hours on end. It’s not enough for them to look good while you’re standing or sitting still. The good news is that with this article from Threads #190 (April/May 2017), a home sewer can make custom, affordable activewear. The garments may have different demands from casual- or formalwear, but great results can be achieved with a bit of planning. Activewear fit and function are personal, and you can adjust, adapt, and evolve your designs into exactly the garments you like.
