Here's Katniss training for the Hunger Games. Judianna Makovsky was the designer for the first movie. Lucas Hugh designed the training gear for the second movie which is on my future list of activewear but for now the picture above is what I've made.
Using great knits from Minerva Crafts, I used Kwik Sew 3567 for the top and Fehr Trade's duathlons for the track pants.
The blue knit is soft and has good recovery, So does the red sparkly fabric. The cornflower colour knit is bonded so I originally wasn't sure if this would work but having a bonded knit was an advantage to developing the sleeves and track pants.
I used the navy and cornflower fabrics for the track pants and added reflective tape.
Here's the no flash view.
Here's the flash view.
The top base used the navy knit. It has a lovely feel to it.
However I changed the back bodice to use the red knit and some reflective tape.
Then I used my french curve ruler to mark out the sleeve design and you can see the pieces cut out with seam allowance and ready to sew.
Most of this outfit was sewn using the overlocker and I used the sewing machine to add the piping.
And here's how the back turned out. I don't have a photo of the back view of the outfit Katniss wears so this is my interpretation... The red fabric has a shine to it so it made sense to put the reflective tape piping with this.
What's great is I can use these pieces to train outside now that it's Autumn in Australia.
These fabrics have such strength to them. I chose these fabric based on the colours on the Minerva Crafts website. They do a much better job of showing the colours on their website than I can.
I've still got fabric left to make a could more Autumn workout pieces. Now that it's getting cooler in the mornings, I can use these pieces for outdoor training and still be seen. Thanks again Minerva Fabrics for letting me indulge a bit in films/books I love and my current pattern drafting binge.
