I made my own sports bra!!! And it fits pretty well, :). So tired of spending so much in sports bras from the store so I’m pretty excited, :).
The sports bra pattern is Pinup Girls Alison. It’s a front close sports bra which is awesome, no wrangling it over my head.
The actual construction is pretty simple and easy. Only adjustments I made were to take in the sides about 1/2″ on each side and use a 1″ wide elastic for the band since I didn’t have any 1.5″ wide on hand. The wickable black exterior fabric and pre-molded bra cups I got from Bra Makers Supply.
Overall I really like how it turned out and fits. Next time I would make the arm holes a bit larger as they are a bit tight. Next time I am going to try Green Style Creations Endurance Bra once I get my supplies.
The Jalie running skirt was also pretty straight forward as this is my 3rd make, first one not adding my customized back skirt pleats. I like to add a 2″ wide elastic to the waistband and hemmed everything 3/8″ instead of 3/4″. The fabric is this amazing wickable Under Armour brand from our local sewing store.
I’ve run 6 miles in both of these and they are pretty great. The shorts didn’t ride up at all and the sports bra delivered minimal bounce.
