Yoga entered my life last year when I decided that I needed some form of excersize. I settled on yoga. It fit my schedule and I was able to attend classes. I hadn’t invested in any activewear for it but that has changed because I love yoga. I mean like really love it in a “Where have you been all my life? You complete me” kind of way.
Lucky for me the Burda January 2016 issue had a swathe of yoga wear patterns. Since being moved to the Ashtanga Improvers class I decided to make something in honour of leveling up.
Top 101A… This oversized top appealed to me because it looked so comfortable. I used a leftover fabric from when I made my first Moneta. This fabric washes well and I still wear that dress so I know this will last. Oversize Hoody 01/2016
Time wise It took me 30 mins to trace and cut the pattern. Just 20 mins to cut the fabric. Another 45 mins to whip it up. All seams were overlocked and simple zigzag for hemming.
It does it job really well. I start my practice wearing it and I can easily slip it off once I build up heat. For warm down at the end I easily pull it back on. Plus it has the front pocket. I will definitely be making another of the variation that has a hem band.
All in all I am pleased as punch. Next up I need to make yoga pants. Have you made any active wear recently? I have been looking at the Sewaholic range but am still undecided……..
