I’m so honored to be in the Itch to Stitch Blog Tour 2019. I am a huge Itch to Stitch fan and have been since I discovered pdf patterns a few years ago.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patterns
Choosing two pattern to sew up for the tour was both easy and difficult. I knew I wanted to sew more Mountain View Pull-on Jeans, as the first pair I made back in March 2018 have been worn to death and I really need more.

For the second pattern I wanted something I hadn’t made before and something that would go well with Mountain View. I went Paulina Top as she met the requirements and I really love the layering effect.

I previously made the jeans in denim, but wanted twill for this version. I love denim, but the gorgeous fall colors  from the Metermeter twill collection is really lovely and it has the right amount of stretch.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patternsOne of the reasons I fell for Mountain View is how easy they are to fit. Apart from the back seam looking awesome, it also makes the jeans very easy to fit.
Last time I made a size 10, but this time I had to go with the 12, because I have gained some weight. I added 0,5 cm to the back thigh, like last time, but I also added 1″ in length in both thigh and at the bottom, adding 2″ in total for length. My height is 175cm, so adding length is usual.
Last alteration was taking about 1″ from the width of the legs from the knee down.

After sewing the wine colored pair of jeans, I went straight back to the shop for more of the same fabric. The colors are amazing and second time around, I choose Khaki.
This turned out to be the perfect pattern/fabric match🥰. Perfect stretch and firmness. Pure love, and the best thing is; I can just go back to the shop and pick all the colors I want😁.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patternsFor the Paulina top I decided on a ponte in black for the main part. I wanted a color that would go with both the wine and the Khaki jeans and I love black. For the woven contrast, I went with some Nano Iro from Metermeter I had in my stash.
Only alteration is, that I omitted the cutouts.
I really like the layering effect you get with this pattern and ponte turned out to be perfect.
The Paulina Top is also a great choice if you, like me, want to conceal some added weight😂.

I am really happy with my new addition to my ever-growing collection of ITS patterns.
The Mountain View Pull-up jeans and the Paulina Top makes me feel more ready for Fall.

Hermosa Shorts from Itch to Stitch

Skærmbillede 2019-06-21 kl. 11.51.23Jeg har mere sommertøj på vej og hvem har ikke brug for et par fede shorts. Hermosa er super fine. De er højtaljede, syet i buksestof, har 3 mulige benlængder og valget mellem lynlås eller knaplukning.
Der er også 4 lommer!

More Summer clothes in the making and who dosen’t need shorts in their wardrobe. Hermosa Shorts are perfect. They are high waisted, made for bottom weight fabric, has option for three lengths and choice between zipper or button fly front. 
Hermosa also has a total of four pockets!

Hermosa Itch to Stitch Shorts pattern pdf pattern sewingHermosa er lavet til stof med lidt stræk så de er komfortable. Mine er i bomulds twill med lidt stræk. Meget behagelige og nemme at have på.
Jeg hr valgt at sy dem med lynlås åbning og den måde den bliver lavet på, er min favorit metode. Instruktionerne er super gode. Tingene er velbeskrevet og der er masser af illustrationer.

Hermosa is designes for fabric with a bit of stretch for comfort and mine are made from cotton twill with some lycra. Very comfortable and easy to wear.
I choose the zipper version and this method of installing zipper is my altimeter favorite and the instructions are very easy to follow making sewing in a zipper fly front a breeze. Everything is well explained and with great illustrations.

At få bukser eller shorts til at passe kan være lidt af en opgave. Jeg synes det er super sjovt og jeg vil altid anbefale at lave en prøvemodel. Jeg har kun lavet små ændringer; lavet buen foran lidt om og lagt 1 cm til indersømmen på både for- og bagbuks. Begge tilretninger som jeg ofte laver på busker.
Hvis du er i tvivl om hvordan du skal lave tilretninger på dine shorts, er der masser af hjælp at finde på nettet og du kan også spørge i Itch to Stitch Design gruppen på FB.

Fitting trousers or shorts can be a daunting process and I would always recommend making a muslin. I only had to make minor adjustment for these; scooped a bit out of the front and added 1 cm on both back and front inseam. Both adjustments I usually do when fitting pants. 
If you have any doubts on fitting, there´s lots to be found on good old internet or help can be found in the Itch to Stitch Design group on FB. 

Hermosa Itch to Stitch Shorts pattern pdf pattern sewing
Jeg har Plitvice på sammen med Hermosa; jeg kan godt lide den kombo❤️

The Plitvice is a perfect match for Hermosa; I love the combo❤️

Hermosa skal helt sikkert være en del af min garderobe i år (sidste år var det Sequoia) og de er nedsat indtil den 24. juni.

Hermosa are going to be my shorts pattern for this Summer (last year it was Sequoia) and they are on sale until June 24.

Harmony T-shirt

Harmony Tunic T-shirt fra Wardrobe by Me kommer lige i tid til den danske sommer. Det er en skøn t-shirt i let jersey med en detalje foran og bindebånd i fast stof.
Jeg synes den er virkelig flatterende og kan bruges til det meste.

Harmony Tunic T-shirt from Wardrobe by Me is just in time for summer in Denmark. It is a lovely t-shirt in jersey knit with a woven detail at the front and with ties.
I find it really flattering and it goes with almost everything.

Jeg har syet 3 Harmony indtil videre og det mønster har helt sikker potentiale til at blive en favorit i min samling. Jeg er vild med detaljerne foran; de er skønne og feminine.
Begge de afbildede Harmony er lavet i viskose jersey, men jeg har også syet én i bambus. Elsker dem alle❤️

I have made three Harmony so far and this pattern definitely has the potential to become a stable in my collection. I love the front detail and the ties are really lovely and feminine.
Both of the shown Harmony are made from rayon knit, but I have also made one in bamboo. Love them all❤️

Harmony har mulighed for 3 forskellige fronter. En alm t-shirt, en t-shirt med overlappende flapper og bindebånd og med en brugbar stolpelukning med læg og knapper.. Alle muligheder er skønne.
Der er også masser af muligheder ift ærmer. Et lille ærme samt et alm ærme med 4 forskellige længder. Jeg har kun syet det lille ærme indtil videre, men til efteråret skal jeg have lavet nogle med længere ærmer.

Harmony has three front options. A plain t-shirt, a t-shirt with woven overlapping front detail and ties and one with a functional front placket with pleats and buttons. All lovely.
There’s also lots of sleeve options. A cap sleeve and normal slim sleeve with 4 different lengths. I have only done the cap sleeve so far, but for autumn I’ll have to make some with longer sleeves.

Jeg er vild med kombinationen af det bløde, lette viskosejersey og de fastvævede detaljer og bindebånd.

I really like the combination of the soft, flowy rayon knit types knit fabric and the woven detail and ties❤️. A great addition to my summer wardrobe.

Harmony Tunic T-shirt er nedsat (til $9, normalt $11) indtil den 14. juni.

Harmony Tunic T-shirt is on sale ($9, reg $11) until June 14th.

Linea A-line Skirt

Scroll down for English version

Linea A-line Skirt er endnu et fedt mønster i voksende samling af fede mønstre fra Wardrobe by Me.
fullsizeoutput_c61Jeg er vild med hvor mange muligheder der er for at lave vidt forskellige nederdele med Linea, afhængigt af stofvalg og hvilken variation af nederdelen du vælger.
Linea har en pyntesøm midtfor og midtbag, men hvis du bruger stof hvor det er afgørende at få mønstret på stoffet til at passe, kan du vælge at udelade midtersømmen. Stoffet lægges bare til fold i stedet for. Du skal blot huske at tage sømrummet fra.
Linea har også mulighed for to længder. Den mørkegrå ponte jeg har syet, er version B med lommer og midtersøm.
Den røde med slikhjerterne, er den kortere version A uden lommer og kun midtersøm bagpå. Jeg ville bare have en nederdel af det stof og jeg havde kun 1 meter. Det kunne lige være der i den version.😉
Den sidste Linea i denne omgang, er den blå med volant. Den er syet i en lidt tyndere bomuldsjersey, så jeg udelod lommer og midtersømmene.

Wardrobe by Me pdfpatterns sewing Linea A-line skirt

Linea A-line Skirt is another great addition to the Wardrobe by Me family of great patterns.
I love how many different skirts you can make with Linea A-line Skirt, depending on choice of fabric and which skirt option you choose.
The skirt has a center seam, but if you have a fabric where pattern matching is an issue, you can just omit the center seam and cut the front on the fold. Just remember to leave out the seam allowance from the center seam.
Linea also has to options for length. My dark grey skirt in ponte knit is view B with side pockets and center seam.
fullsizeoutput_c4bThe red one with the hearts of sweets is the shorter view A without pockets and only a seam at the back. I really wanted to make a skirt with this fabric and only had 1 meter of it. With these choices, I just managed😉
The last Linea I have made so far, is the blue one with the volant. Because the fabric is a bit on the thin side, I went with no center seam and no pockets.

Jeg er pjattet med det her mønster og dets muligheder. Lommerne, hvilket jeg ikke ser ofte på nederdele, er et kæmpe plus, men det er linningen også. Det er fedt at linningen lægger sig næsten flat og ikke samler en masse stof i taljen. Selv om det egentligt kun er en løbegang med elastik i, så fylder den ikke en masse og nederdelen er stadigvæk nem at få af og på. Kæmpe plus👍🏻

fullsizeoutput_c50I love this pattern and it’s features. The pockets, which I don’t see very often in skirts, are awesome, but so is the elasticated waistline. It’s really lovely how the waistline sits almost flat and dosen’t gather the fabric. Even though it is an elastic in a casing, it dosen’t bulge, but just sits flat and the skirt is still easy to get on and off. Big plus, in my book👍🏻

Tilpasning af Linea A-line Skirt er super nem; det er nemlig ikke nødvendigt🙃. Du skal bare vælge str efter måleskemaet og sætte din nederdel i din naturlige taljen, ikke på hofterne.
At sy nederdelen er lige så nemt og hurtigt. det tager ikke lang tid fra start til slut, især hvis du undlader at sy volanten (du kan endda udelade lommer og midtersøm, så går det endnu hurtigere).

fullsizeoutput_c4dFitting Linea A-line Skirt is easy peasy; you won’t have to🙃. Just make sure the skirt sits at your natural waist and is not hanging from your hips.
Sewing the skirt is just as straight forward and fast. It doesn’t take much time from cutting to finish, especially if you choose the skirt option without the volant (you can even leave out the center seam and/or the pockets for an even faster sew).

Linea A-line Skirt er i størrelse 0-24/30-54, så den kan passe de fleste. Jeg skal ofte graduere mellem størrelser da jeg har stor forskel på hofte- og taljemål, men med Linea passede det præcis med str 12/42 og den passer perfect.

Linea A-line Skirt has a size range from size 0-24/30-54 so it will fit most people. I often have to grade patterns due to large hip-waist ratio, but with Linea I was almost spot on size 12/42, which turnes out perfect.

Linea A-line Skirt er nedsat indtil den 26. april 2019 på Wardrobe by Me.

Linea A-line skirt is on sale until the 26 of April 2019 over at Wardrobe by Me.

Kalispell from Itch to Stitch

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewingKalispell er endnu et skønt kjolemønster fra Itch to Stitch. Kennis har virkelig et talent for at lave flotte, detaljerede og feminine kjoler i fast stof. Her er et andet eksempel: Giverny.
Skørtet har indadvendte læg både bagpå og foran, så den sidder til i taljen og åbner sig op nedad til.
Kjolen har stolpe og kapper hele vejen ned, hvilket jeg er ret vild med. Det ser stiligt ud og så behøver man ikke lynlås. Win-win. Jeg har endda gjort det endnu lettere for mig selv, ved at sætte trykknapper i istedet for knaphuller og knapper😉.

Kalispell is another gorgeous dress pattern from Itch to Stitch. Kennis really has a talent for making lovely, detailed and feminine dresses in woven fabric. Here’s another example: Giverny.
Kalispell has some great details and I find it to be for the intermediate+ sewist. It has front and back princess seams and with cup sizes from A to DD it is not hard to fit at all. I didn’t have to make any alterations at all.
The skirt has inverted box pleats both on the front and back so it is fitted at the waist and flares out further down.
The dress button down, a feature I really love. It looks stylish and eliminates the need for a zipper. Win-win. I even went the easy way and used snap buttons instead of sewing buttonholes😉

Hvorfor synes jeg den er til øvede? Kjolen er nem nok at sy, men man skal være opmærksom på pasmærkerne på stoplen for at få den til at lægge sig pænt. Det er nu ikke et problem med mønstrene fra Itch to Stitch; de passer altid perfekt.
Bare husk at matche dem med dem på selve kjolen.

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing
Why intermediate+? Well the dress comes together easy enough, but you have to pay close attention to the notches on the neckbands in order for it to lay flat. Not at problem; with Itch to Stitch the notches always matches up perfectly, but you have to pay some attention.

Kalispell er let til mellemsvært fastvævet stof. Det kan være af næsten alt, det skal bare have lidt fald for at lægge sig pænt i læggene.
Jeg har brugt babyfløjl og det er helt perfekt.

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing
Kalispell is for woven light- to medium weight fabric in almost any fabric, it just needs a bit of drape to play nicely. 

I went with a very soft baby corduroy and I love it.

Kjolen er i én længde, men den er nem at forkorte eller forlænge, man skal bare bruge linjerne på mønstret til det.
Man kan sy kjolen med enten flagreærme eller cap-ærme. Mine skuldre er for brede til flagreærme, så jeg har syet med cap-ærme.
Og, yearh…Kalispell har LOMMER! Så behøver jeg vist ikke siger mere?

The dress has one length, but is easily lengthened or shortened using the lines for that. 
It also has the option for a cap sleeve or flare sleeve. My shoulders are too wide for the flare sleeves, so I went with the cap sleeve. 
Oh, and I almost forgot: Kalispell has POCKETS! Need I say more?

Instruktionerne er som altid vildt gode og hvis du bare følger dem, skal du nok komme i mål.

Instructions are as always extremely well made and if you just follow them, you’ll be in good hands.

Kalispell er nedsat indtil den 31. marts 2019

Kalispell is on sale until the 31st of March 2019

Mirri from Wardrobe by Me

Mirri fra Wardrobe by Me er ikke et nyt mønster, men det bliver udgivet igen med endnu bedre instruktioner og flere størrelser. Nu går den fra str 30-54. Jeg syede min første Mirri for 6 måneder siden og jeg faldt fuldstændigt for mønstret. Jeg har brugt min kjole virkelig meget.

Mirri from Wardrobe by Me is not a new pattern, but it is being rereleased with better instructions and expanded size range. Now it has sizes from US 0-24. I made my first Mirri 6 months ago and I completely fell in love with the pattern.Mirri Wardrobe by Me sewing pdf pattern
Mirri Wardrobe by Me sewing pdf pattern
Mirri er en faux slå-om kjole med en sjals-agtig krave som giver et mere tækkeligt look. Ingen fare for at der bliver åbnet op eller noget falder ud😉.
Jeg er ret vild med den måde kraven står lidt op på; det er vældig elegant, synes jeg.
Skørtet er i fire længder og jeg har allerede syet både bluse, knæ-længde og maxi længden.
Jeg troede egentligt ikke, at jeg var til maxikjoler pga lidt brede hofter, men jeg er blevet så glad for den og føler mig godt tilpas i den. Under testen af Mirri har jeg set den på mange forskellige kropsbygninger og den klæder alle.

Mirri Wardrobe by Me sewing pdf pattern
Mirri is a faux wrap dress with a shawl like collar, making the neckline very modest. This means no mistakingly exposing boobs or fall outs😉.

I really love the way the collar stand up a bit hugging the neck. Very elegant, I think.
The skirt comes in four lengths from blouse to maxi. I have made both blouse, knee and maxi.
I didn’t really think I could wear a maxi due to wide hips, but I actually really like it and feel very comfortable in it. During the testing of Mirri I have seen her on many different bodytypes and she suits them all. 

Jeg har syet Mirri i en str 42 uden tilretninger. Min næste Maxi vil jeg nu lave lidt længere, men jeg er også 175cm.
Mirri er designet til at blive syet op i let til medium let jersey med stræk. Min første Mirri er i bomuld/lycra og de to næste er viskose/lycra. Stoffet skal have et godt fald for at få læggene i toppen til at lægge sig pænt over brystet.
Stoffet til den grønne og til leoparden, er fra Kludemandens restebord og stoffet til den blomstrede, er fra Ribes e Casals i Barcelona.
Jeg vil meget gerne sy den næste Mirri i Bambus/lycra stof. Det har jeg gjort med Wanda og den er bare så skøn.

Mirri Wardrobe by Me sewing pdf pattern

I have made Mirri in a size 12 with no alterations. I will, however, make my next maxi just a tad longer in the skirt. I’m 175cm.
Mirri is designed to be sewn in light to medium weight jersey with stretch. My first Mirri was in cotton/lycra and the last two in rayon/lycra. The fabric has to have good drape to make the pleats fall nicely across the chest.
The fabric for the green and the fabric for the leopard Mirri is from the remnants table at Kludemanden (a Danish company who collects leftover fabric from production) and the flower fabric on the blouse is from Ribes e Casals in Barcelona.

I would love to make the next maxi in a bamboo/lycra knit. I did a Wanda in bamboo knit and I love the feel and drape.

Mirri Wardrobe by Me sewing pdf pattern
Mirri er hurtig at sy, ihvertfald når man lige har fat på, hvordan læggene skal vende. Det står godt forklaret i vejledningen og er man stadigvæk i tvivl, er der er vejledning med billeder på WbM bloggen.

Mirri is a fast sew once you understand how to fold the pleats the right way. The instructions are very clear, but if you are still in doubt, there is a picture tutorial on the WbM blog.

Mirri er nedsat til $10 (normalt $12) indtil den 22. marts.

Mirri is on sale for $10 (reg $12) until the 22nd of March.


Men’s Fleece Jacket from Wardrobe by Me

Der er lige kommet endnu et super mønster til mænd fra Wardrobe by Me, Men’s Fleece Jacket. Jeg har været med til at teste mønstret, og det var en rigtig god proces.
Men’s Fleece Jacket er en slim fitting jakke med nogle fede detaljer; ærmet er tre-delt og der er sømme ned foran og bagpå jakken. I sømmen foran sidder usynlige lynlåse til de to lommer. Jakken har også en inderlomme med lynlås.
De mange sømme gør jakken oplagt til at sy den i flere farver og den kan laves enten med krave eller hætte.
Raglan-ærmerne giver jakken et sporty udseende✔️

Another great new men’s pattern from Wardrobe by Me has seen the light of day. The Men’s Fleece Jacket was just released today and it is really awesome. I was part of the testing team, which was a pleasant process.
The Men’s Fleece Jacket is a slim fitting jacket with some great details; 3 seams on each sleeve and contoured seams down both the front and the back. In the front seams are the two invisible zippers for the pockets. The jacket also has an inner pocket with zipper.
The jacket is perfect for color blocking and can be made with either a collar or a hood.
The raglan sleeves gives it such a sporty look✔️

Wardrobe by Me pdfpatterns Men's Fleece Jacket sewing

Jeg spurgte min mand om han helst ville have krave eller hætte og han valgte kraven. Jeg tror dog jeg skal have syet én til ham med hætte også.
Jakken hedder en fleece jakke, men kan laves i både isoli, fleece eller soft shell. Jeg brugte en rigtig skøn, kraftig isoli fra Jeanettemai i meleret vinrød.

Wardrobe by Me pdfpatterns Men's Fleece Jacket sewing

I asked my husband and he like the version with the collar, so that’s what he got. I think I will make him a hood version too, though.
It is called a fleece jacket, but can be made in french terry, fleece or soft shell fabric. I got this really lovely, very thick french terry in a nice melange wine colour from

Før jeg stødte ind i Wardrobe by Me syede jeg aldrig til min mand. Jeg syntes det var kedeligt og jeg kunne ikke finde ordentlige mønstre. Sådan er det ikke mere! Det sidste halvandet år har Wardrobe by Me lavet ret mange fede mønstre til mænd.
Indtil videre har jeg syet Jensen Skirt, Draper Polo Shirt, Men’s Chino Pants, Men’s Boxer Briefs, Rebel Sweat Pants, Men’s Cargo Shorts, Hubert Hoodie Sweater (unisex, jeg har også syet en til min datter), The Boxer Shorts, Men’s Tank Top, Unisex PJ Pants og et par Beanie Hats til min mand. Hold da op; det var flere herremønstre end jeg troede….!

I never used to sew for my husband before I found Wardrobe by Me. I thought it boring and uninspiring and very difficult to find nice patterns. Not anymore. Over the past year and a half Wardrobe by Me has launched quite a few really cool patterns for men.
So far I have made the Jensen Skirt, Draper Polo Shirt, Men’s Chino Pants, Men’s Boxer Briefs, Rebel Sweat Pants, Men’s Cargo Shorts, Hubert Hoodie Sweater (unisex, also made one for my daughter), The Boxer Shorts, Men’s Tank Top, Unisex PJ Pants and I also made some Beanie Hats for my husband. Wauw the list was even longer than I thought….!

Det er ret let a sy jakken. Min mand er smal om hofterne og bredere om skyldrene og brystet, så jeg graduerede mellem en str XL om hoften og 2XL om brystet. Det er de eneste ændringer jeg har lavet.

Sewing the jacket is fairly easy and straight forward. My husband is slim hipped with broad chest and shoulders, so I choose to grade between size XL for waist and 2XL for chest. Worked perfect and I didn’t make any other alterations.

Instruktionerne er virkeligt gode og vel illustrerede, but hvis du synes usynlige lynlåse kan være skræmmende, så har Christina også lavet en ekstra vejledning med billeder på en blogpost.

The instructions for the jacket are really good and well illustrated, but if you find invisible zippers scary, Christina has written a great blogpost with pictures on the subject.

Of course he had to goof around on one of the many, many scooters in Lisbon

At skulle fotografere til en tøj til en test er ikke super nemt i Danmark på denne årstid. Heldigvis skulle vi til Lissabon i slutningen af testperioden, så vi kunne tage billeder dernede. Ret perfekt. Jeg er vild med Lissabon og Portugal og skal helt sikkert tilbage en gang.

Men’s Fleece Jacket er nedsat resten af februar på Wardrobe by Me.

The Men’s Fleece Jacket is on sale on Wardrobe by Me for the rest of February.

Taking pictures for testing is a pain this time of the year in Denmark, but luckily the timing for this test was perfect; we ended the testing period with a trip to Lisbon. Perfect location for taking pictures. I loved Lisbon and Portugal and would love to go back some day.
