The fashions of athleisure, yoga leggings and tops are now part of our everyday wardrobes and they're really fun to sew. Learn to make the most fashionable and wearable versions as you explore the components with an expert. Kathy, an experienced fitter who loves to work with knits of all types will show you how pick and size patterns to four-way stretch fabrics with different 'negative ease', how to resource fabrics and notions introducing "Filpar" elastic from Italy and special seaming techniques for both sewing machine and Serger to make flattering and fun athleisure wear. Learn how to copy yoga yokes from finished garments and then fit them to your leggings for a custom fit. You can even make this extra long yoke out of contrasting compression fabric and then upscale your low rise pants to the "Spanks" effect high rise pants that smooth and slim your waistline. Finally, learn to make the garments your own by adding details like pockets and zippers to hold your smart phone securely.
