Reviews

Tired of wearing the same old bike shorts, leggings, and tank tops that everyone else has bought? Do you dream of glamming up hoodies and jackets just a touch? Sew Your Own Activewear will get you off on the right foot with sewing your own, with both patterns and helpful hints from experienced sewist (and marathon runner) Melissa Fehr. The patterns provided work for a number of styles, and Fehr walks through pattern manipulation in each section. Her attention to detail matched with her own experience in activewear make this a welcome addition to the sewing library. SYOA is not a beginner book and basic sewing experience would be helpful. -- Tracey Trudeau * Staff Picks *
