10 Tips for Sewing Leggings, Sports & Athleisure Wear























 1. FABRIC:  Use a quality 4-way stretch fabric, such as a Nylon Spandex Tricot Knit,  so the fabric retains its shape (no baggy knee’s cool).  Add a touch of Power Mesh Nylon Tricot Knit  

2. WICK AWAY: If you plan on working out, look for moisture wicking fabric.  Wickaway moves sweat to the outside of the fabric and quickly dries, so your sweat doesn’t soak the fabric.   


  3. FITTING:  Athletic wear is usually fitted, especially leggings.  Check the exact measurements on the pattern and compare to your exact measurements.  You will want to have the outfit at least 1″ smaller than your size (more than 1″ depending on your size too). This is what we call negative ease.

4. NEEDLES:  Use a stretch  in the sewing machine, serger, and coverstitch.

 5. THREAD: I use Wooly Poly or Wooly Nylon in the upper and lower loopers on the serger.

  6. SERGER STITCH: A 4-thread overlock stitch is stronger than a 3-thread overlock stitch.  I use the 4-thread for leggings, fitted workout tops, and sport bras.  I use the 3-thread overlock stitch for loose fitting knits and items that won’t have a lot of stress.

7. SEWING:  If you don’t have a serger, you an use stretch thread in the sewing machine.  Wind the bobbin slowly and use the stretch thread for both the upper thread and bobbin with a straight stitch.  Another option is using universal thread and a narrow zigzag stitch.


8. ELASTIC:  I use sport and braided elastic in the waistband of my leggings.   1/2″ wide when I am sewing yoga style leggings with a wide waistband.  1″ or 1-1/4″ when sewing more of a leggings style. 


9. HEMMING: performance fabric can be slippery and tricky to sew.  I steam press the hem and use a tailors clapper to create a creased fold.  Then when I run the fabric through the coverstitch machine  or sewing machine using a twin needle, the fabric lays nice and flat. 


10. ADD A TOUCH OF MESH:  Use a coordinating mesh fabric to leggings as an accent to hold your cell phone or inserted into a tank for a trendy style.


Apron Sew Along

Apron Sew Along

An apron is such a fun accessory to wear in the kitchen, at work, while dyeing fabrics, gardening, you name it!  I thought it would be so fun to sew an apron and each day have guests on the live show showing how to embellish with embroidery, quilting, applique, and more. 


I will be using Molly Madison’s Apron Pattern, but feel free to use any apron pattern you might have on hand.  Molly is a friend of mine and I just love the variations on her pattern as you see above.

Here is the schedule of live shows and I will include links to the live shows each morning:

How to Set Up and Thread a Serger

Some of the most common questions I get revolve around the serger.  A serger, also called an overlock machine,  is typically used to trim and finish the raw edges on fabric, yet the serger can do SO much more!  While the Brother Brand Ambassadors are taking over the Brother Facebook and YouTube channels I am going to add a series of tutorials on the serger and coverstitch machine.  To get started, I will explain the dials, tension settiings, and show how to thread the serger. 

I hope this live video helped you get the serger dusted off!  I have additional serging videos on my YouTube channel.

Until next time, Happy Sewing!
