Cedar and Belmont Workout Outfit Fabric Inspiration


Happy New Year, everyone! Carrie here to kick off our workout outfit sewalong with fabric inspiration for the Cedar Workout Tank & Dolman Top and the Belmont Leggings & Yoga Pants.

Cedar Workout Tank

High stretch in all directions and wicking capabilities are what you want in your fabric choices for the Cedar Workout Tank. Play around with color blocking or print mixing and go for a contrast fold over elastic to add personality to your top!

Cedar Dolman Top

The world is your oyster with the Cedar Dolman Top! Equally suited to knits and wovens, choose a wicking stripe or mesh for a great post-exercise top, or a drapey cotton lawn for everyday wear.

Belmont Leggings & Yoga Pants

These fabrics will work for both the leggings and the yoga pants, providing structure and stretch with a little hint of fun. These classics will take you from the gym to brunch without an issue. I love the tonal stripes for a bit of variety!

Want to jump in on the wild legging trend? Check out Spandex House for every print you can possibly imagine! Colorful splotches, galaxy prints, rainbow fish scales? You bet. Or go nature inspired with a rose garden, jungle leaves, or my favorite, a surprising wood grain print.

Feeling wary of sourcing activewear fabrics online? Check out our limited edition kits!

    I really like the tank top, but I wouldn’t use it as active wear, but rather a tank top. Will this pattern fit equally well if just using a 4 way stretch instead of “active wear” fabric? Thanks!

    1. Yes, as long as it’s 4 way stretch it will work!

    I would really like to order your patterns but I am not sure if they will work for me. My measurements are as follows: HB 38”, FB 48”, UB 37, waist33, Hips 40. My problem with most commercial patterns that I’ve chosen in the past has been with them being to large in the shoulder area. Thanks in advance. On a side note: love your Craftsy class❤️

      The size chart is found on this page: https://www.cashmerette.com/pages/sizing. You are at the smaller end, certainly. You may benefit from a narrow shoulder adjustment. Let me look and i’ll Find a link for that adjustment.

    Here you go; the narrow shoulder adjustment: https://blog.cashmerette.com/2016/09/tutorial-how-to-narrow-shoulders-alter-a-necklin.html.
    As a busty, wide shouldered woman, I can’t say i’ve Ever done this one, but I have done full bust adjustments and they do work. A French curve may also be your friend!
    It’s really not that hard to make adjustments, especially when the pattern has an overall good fit. I was terrified to try it, but once I bit the bulllet and just tried it, I found it wasn’t so bad. Try to find good fabric on sale with which to muslin. It does help to have a wearable muslin if limited sewing time is a factor.
