working out






top and shorts - self made

and got me thinking of all the activewear i made in past months
..
never even considered to post pics of my activewear..
although they are fun to make
(especially if you have access to an industrial coverstitch machine)
i kind of find those makes  a bit boring..
but hey, they may not be as boring to you
so i decided to post a few pics anyways
..
i started working out over a year ago
 got real hooked on to it
and still work out 6 days a week
(i switch between insanity and t25)
..
i workout in my living room
so can get away with minimal amount of wear
without feeling uncomfortable about it..
no way in hell i'd go to the gym dressed like this
(but, then again, i've never set foot into a gym..
i just hate the idea of working out
among bunch of unknown people)

  1. WHAT these are so cute! Seriously, I love them. And you look amazing! I'm so glad you posted pics. Definitely inspiring me to make some more activewear.

    Now is there some sort of list I can get on to use that industrial coverstitch machine? ;)

    1. thanks, lindsay :)
      i wish we can sew together, that would be fun :) although, i may made that machine sound way more fancy than it really is.. in reality, it's loud and huge, and a bit tricky to use (mostly because it's way older than i am, and breaks a lot), but i love working on it, and am really thankful that my friend lets me hang out in his sewing studio and use his machines :)

  3. Hi, I came to your blog post from the project you posted on Burdastyle. I like the entire outfit, but I particularly like the bra. There is no gaping and no visible closure and the fit is perfect! I have a small bust and I have a hard time finding bras that fit, and I would like to draft one that is similar to yours. Could you please tell me if you used any tutorial or available resource for drafting yours? Thank you!

    1. thanks, olga (and sorry for the late reply, i've been away on a hike past weekend, so couldn't reply earlier).. i haven't used any tutorial, but i simply traced my old workout top, that i had for ages, and then copied it.. you can mail me at mokosha(at)gmail.com, and i can send you back a drawing of what the pattern looks like, so you can try to replicate it)..

  5. These are so pretty! I love that they look nothing like what most people think of as workout clothes. You're always thinking out of the box.

  7. Love the shape of that bra… actually … besides the use you make of it (cause it’s really versatile) the whole thing is darn cute!

    1. i am thinking of making few bras from that pattern, cause i like the fit, and comfiness, and the fact that there is no gaping at all.. i'll just have to make it in less bulky fabric, to be able to wear it underneath my clothes
