Lycra really!

Hello everyone, I'm still here!

So, what has been my sewing progress on my re-entry skirt? Little, to be honest. I've cut the pattern and constructed the waistband but that is it. It's been quite a few months so I could have easily finished it but I have just the other day realised why I haven't. The truth is....this fabric just doesn't excite me and I do remember well from my big sewing days that if I don't love the fabric and pattern I just half do it or procrastinate. I bought this fabric ages ago because I love bird themed fabric but teh colours are wrong for me.

In these years I've been away from sewing I discovered new passions and interests and re-discovered others. One of them is fitness. I used to go to gym 4 or 5 times a week and loved it. A few years after moving to London the gigantic commute meant I stopped going and once you stop exercising going back to it is hard. But I've done it and LOVE it.

So I decided to sew some fitness clothes which is probably a very silly decision as "Hello sewing with lycra!!!?? First thing after a sewing break? When I never sewn with lycra before?" But these details never stopped me doing what I wanted and like so here we go. I've purchased the fabric and the patterns. Sewaholic Patterns never failed me so they won't fail me now.

Have you done these patterns? Or sewn with lycra before? Tips welcome.
