Introducing Cashmerette's new activewear collection

Cashmerette's new activewear collection has a timely launch of tops, bottoms, and a yoga bag to make an athleisure mini-wardrobe for fitness freaks or those who just like wearing comfortable clothes at home.

The Cedar tops have been designed to be comfortable yet stylish while you move and play. They have full sports bra coverage and are designed with curves in mind as you would expect from Cashmerette. The sporty workout tank has princess seams both front and back which is perfect for adding a touch of colour-blocking fun, plus two necklines (V- and crew neck) and on-trend back detailing. The dolman sleeve top can made out of drape wovens or knit/woven fabrics, and is perfect for throwing on after a workout, or over a pair of jeans for the weekend.

The Belmont Pants are curve-friendly, and have high waistbands so you're not forever pulling them up! There's also an optional gusset for greater range of motion. Make in basic black or the latest novelty spandex patterns, these  leggings will take you from your yoga class to coffee with friends.

Cashmerette Shawmut Bag

And a wonderful addition to the collection of sportswear is the Shawmut Yoga Bag, which is super easy to make, and will help you stand out from the crowd in a class! It's designed to fit a standard size yoga mat, and has a pocket in the front for your water bottle.

We love the latest Marion Coat pattern from Schnittchen. This lined short coat impresses because of its rounded hem, rib knit shawl collar, separated zipper and has inseam pockets on the sides.

The coat can be sewn from various coat fabrics. Whether you chose to use wool fabrics, solid canvas, denim or the latest quilted fabric – there is no limits to your imagination. Thicker knits and boiled wool would also make great fabric choices for this sewing pattern.
