We all know there is a shortage of athletic and workout wear sewing patterns out there, and they require specific pattern making and sewing techniques. That’s why we developed the Sew and Draft Your Own Personal 7 Piece Workout Wear Collection course with BurdaStyle’s very own, Meg Healy!


In this course, you’ll be guided through the process of drafting and sewing your own personal collection of workout wear garments. We’ll start from the very beginning and learn about the stretch factor of knit fabrics and how to accommodate for the stretch percentage on the sewing pattern.

While it may sound complicated at first, the course is designed to be very user friendly and each session is taught through on-camera demonstrations and printable handouts. By the end of this six week long course you will have a great understanding of athletic fabrics and how to sew with them. Better yet, you will have made a running tank, yoga tank, t-shirt, leggings, shorts, and yoga pants complete with matching headband! Everything that you need to kick start your sewing and workouts.


What You’ll Learn:

  • Determine a fabric’s stretch factor using the stretch gauge and learn how to make pattern reductions also known as negative ease

  • Develop a BONUS running tank from our Knit Top Sloper (included pattern PDF)

  • Make and sew a V neck workout tank with panels from our Knit Top Sloper

  • Draft AND sew (according to your measurements) 3 bottoms including yoga pants, leggings, and shorts from our Legging Sloper (included)

  • Drafting a sports bra with bust cups from our bodysuit sloper. The sloper is included with the course.

  • Demonstration of drafting and sewing a form fitting yoga tank with built in bra shelf from our Tank Sloper pattern (included)

  • Customizing your workout wear patterns and making them your own changing the neckline, armholes, hemline and adding pockets!

Who Should Attend:

  • Beginner to advanced sewers wanting to learn how to work with stretch athletic wear fabrics

  • Sewers wanting to learn an understanding of pattern making and making your own stylized patterns

  • Anyone who wants to make their own workout wear collection


After completion of this course you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to make even more athletic garments, since Meg will demonstrate how to develop these patterns on slopers meant for knit fabrics (you’ll also get PDFs of the sloper patterns!). In the last session you be shown how easy it is to customize your slopers and make your own designs to execute, and by the 6th session you’ll be a pro!

This live course starts on January 17th!
