Part journal entry, part mood board.
Last week I started a 100 day yoga challenge. My goal is not to do 100 days straight because it’s okay to miss a day. That’s been one of my problem in the past trying to get in a good workout habit; once I break schedule I just quit.
This time I’m going to try giving myself a goal; last night I figured out what that will be: sewing my own yoga clothes.
I came across the Knot-Maste Yoga Set pattern from Fehr Trade and I think that’s what I’d like to make.
The pattern has a couple cute variations too and looks really customizable! The style is very much my jam too. I like the flowey top that won’t flop down over my face in a down dog. I also really don’t love yoga leggings. Leggings that aren’t a “base layer” really aren’t my thing, but I do like pants that go to my ankles and I love the idea of having a little tie at the base of the pant legs to keep everything in place.
Looking through my PDF pattern folder I spotted that at some point I (impulsively) picked up the Pneuma Tank from Papercut Patterns. I think this will be a good one to make when the weather has started to warm up. That sports bra might be good under the Knot-maste top though.
Researching good resources for knit fabric, I came across a shop online called Natural Fabrics and it looks like they offer a wide selection of knit solids from different materials like Bamboo, Hemp and Organic Cotton.
I’ve since fallen in love with the idea of doing this pattern in a similar color-way as the pattern cover, using a light blue hemp jersey knit for the top and a dark blue/grey bamboo french terry for the pant.
Part of even writing this post is trying to hold myself accountable. 100 days of yoga is a motivator for me to make sure I’m moving my body with intention through the winter. So far we are off to a better start than most of my previous attempts at adding exercise to my regular daily schedule.
I’ve only missed a couple days since starting and I’ve been tracking my progress on a printable habit tracker from B Supurb.
Wish me luck sticking with my 100 days; if I do it maybe we’ll see some new knit yoga gear in March 2020!
