So I decided to make a pair of running shorts for my sportswear inspired outfit. The fabric I used was a breathable water resistant  polyester with a 2 layer membrane. Polyester is an ideal choice of fabric when creating sportswear garments because not only does its abrasion resistant quality make it durable, but also crease resistant. This therefore provides the wearer ideal flexibility and comfort during body movement. To give the shorts that sportswear aesthetic, I added features such a an elasticated waistband and a yellow binding around the leg holes.  Above are images of how I sewed the shorts together as well as a finished technical drawing.
