How To Make Your Own Athletic Clothing

Published at 03/28/2012 20:49:20


If you are planning to form your own team for any athletic event, might as well immediately decide on what uniform your team is going to wear. It is very important to have a uniform for your team to make you look united and well prepared. So before the event, you better get yourself busy in making your own athletic clothing. Here are the steps that you could follow.

Step 1

Step 1: Make your design

The first step that you would need to do in making your own athletic clothing is to sketch your preferred design. Get a piece of paper and pencil and do some sketching on both the top and bottom athletic clothing. It’s up to you if you choose a long-sleeved, short-sleeved, or sleeveless top. You can do some research on the internet before you to have an idea of the design that you want. You can always put together your ideas and the designs from the internet making an entirely new overall design. Of course you would need to know for what sport you’re going to make your athletic clothing for. Would it be for basketball, running, football, or volleyball? It would be important for you to know this because each sport has different clothing designs.

Step 2

Step 2: Choose the size and colour

The next step is choosing the size and color for your athletic clothing. If you are planning to make a uniform for your team, you should unanimously decide on what colour you should all be wearing. It would be weird if your team would wear different colours because you certainly wouldn’t look like a team at all. Aside from that, make sure that you have measured the sizes for both the top and bottom for each of your team member.

Step 3

Step 3: Choose preferred type of fabric

After choosing the size and color, you also have to decide on the type of fabric that you are going to use in making your own athletic clothing. You can choose whether you would want polyester or a polyester spandex as for a fabric. Any athletic clothing should always be light so it would be preferable not to use cotton fabric because it is much heavier than the polyester fabric.

Step 4

Step 4: Make your own logo

A logo is very important because it identifies your team. A logo should always be present in your athletic clothing so that people would know that you are representing your team. In making your logo, make sure that it represents your team well and it would be related to the name of your team. It would also be preferable if you include the name of your team in the logo. The logo will be printed separately from the clothing so make sure you make a high resolution image for your logo.

Step 5

Step 5: Look for a tailor or manufacturer

If you are planning to seek for online manufacturer for your clothing, you can always search the internet. You can go to, or if you want to have your clothing made. You can even upload your own logo for them to print it on your clothing.


The only problem if you want to have your clothing made online is that you cannot really have your own design made. So instead, you choose from their default designs and look for the ones that are closer to yours. So the best thing to do is to look for a tailor who makes athletic clothing. You can explain to the tailor the design that you want to have and you can even discuss the type of fabric and the colour that you want.
