New Athletics Pre-Order Opening 10/16/20

Opening Date: Friday, October 16th Closing Thursday, October 29th

See what our talented sewists were inspired to make!


Athletics for every activity level

Athletics are a variety of fabrics, each varies in its contents (check the listing) but are grouped together because they're well suited for whatever kind of workout your day brings you.

Nylon content makes these fabrics moisture whisking, polyester makes them soft, spandex makes them stretchy and cotton makes them breathable. Check the specific product listing for the content breakdown. Information about UPF rating is also included for each fabric!

Each fabric weight is also listed. Heavier fabrics will be stronger to sew something more compressible (with more negative ease, meaning it's actually smaller than you and designed to stretch when you put it on, like leggings) while lighter fabrics make for cool tops.


Olympus Bottom Weight Microfiber Tricot

This pre-order is super exciting because it also includes new custom prints plus customer favorite prints available on the Olympus base fir the first time! Olympus is a heavier tricot fabric, great for a bottom weight. It's cool and slick but heavier and great for patterns with negative ease built in. It's still a tricot though so it's swim safe!!


Coordinating colors for more combinations

ALD strives to source fabrics that coordinate so that as you make pieces they'll naturally coordinate with each other. Check out all the great solids the promo team chose to pair with their prints!

In keeping that balance, we've been adding new solids all year and it's time to get new prints in for the season! The pre-order will include prints that have many color coordinating options. Check out to find solids!

Build your ultimate athletics capsule by pinning the fabrics you would love to pair to a Pinterest board! The product listings have a handy "Pin It" button!

Brittanie made an Itch to Stitch Lago Tank in Payson and Rasperry. She's also wearing her charcoal circular knit leggings from the Inspired Bundle a few rounds ago.

Jody made a sports bra with silicon backed elastic straps (notions section) and athletic tights in Payson.
