For the month of February, I’ve been working on pieces for a work out gear challenge that’s been started by the #sewmuchtalentFBgroup (any of you PeriCrafters are familiar with this). Making my own work out clothes has been on my radar for a while and I think this was the push I needed to get it done! I had made some things last year (click here) that I still wear, but I wanted more. And I had plenty of patterns to choose from.
So, I used B6295 to make these leggings.
The top, which I altered to have a hi-lo hem, is the Style Arc “Alannah” T-shirt.
For spring/summer, I made the New Look 6285 (S0547) top (it has two sets of pattern numbers) and I altered Simplicity 8268 joggers to make the shorts.
For anyone interested in the leggings, the pattern is great and easy, but I think it does run a bit large. Next time I’ll take out some of the “extra” in the pattern. I actually cut these down after putting them together. But, the side pockets are great!
I don’t think I’ve reviewed any of these patterns yet, so I’ll have to get on it soon!
