The great FREE Uvita from Itch to Stitch

Uvita“, what is that? Well, I had to look it up and it turns out to be a beautiful place in Costa Rica. Now it is also a great pattern from Itch to Stitch. There are many great features in this pattern and one of the greater ones is, that it is FREE.Uvita drop shoulder itch to stitch sewing free pdf pattern
The description in the pattern says;”The Uvita Top is a relaxed, dropped-shoulder top that is designed for maximum comfort and style. The minimalist style is a blank canvas that is perfect for showcasing your interesting fabric.”
Uvita does what it promises; it is simple and can be sewn in many different fabric and styles going from thin rayon to sweater knit. It has the option of long sleeve and three-quarter and has a wide neckline.

If you are new to pdf-patterns or just need a really versatile pattern for tops, you will love Uvita. It might bee free, but the pattern, instructions and illustrations are very much up to Kennis´ usual standard.
It is a fast and easy sew. Only a few hours, maybe three, from printing to final press.

I made a straight size 10, but might go down a size for the next one. Only alteration was adding 1″ to sleeve and body, which turned out wasn’t really necessary.
I am wearing my Liana Stretch Jeans from Itch to Stitch. I highly recommend that pattern; love my Lianas.

Getting photos taking this time of the year in Denmark is pretty challenging. It gets dark very early and the sun rarely comes out. We have just had a bit of snow, but the temperature just crawled back up a bit and now it is just slush. No white Christmas for us this year.

Get Uvita here and see the other testers versions here. There is also a coupon code for 20% off for the whole store valid until the 19th of December.

The Boxer Shorts by Wardrobe by Me

Wardrobe by Me is really coming up with some new awesome patterns for men. The Boxer Shorts is no exception. It is a classic boxer shorts pattern for woven fabric. The front and the sides are one piece and the back has extra room for comfort. They range from size 2XS-4XL, fitting most men and teenage boys.Wardrobe by Me Boxer Shorts sewing pdf pattern woven
I have never tested underwear before and never sewn boxershorts, so that is two new for me. I also had to ask hubby if I could take pictures of him in underwear. It did take some convincing since we always take pictures for tests outside and it is December and freezing cold😂. He was a good sport about it and went outside in underpants without any (or almost no) complaints at all. Guess I own him😉

Wardrobe by Me har virkelig lavet nogle gode mønstre til mænd på det seneste. The Boxer Shorts er ingen undtagelse. Det er et par klassiske boxershorts til fast stof. Forstykket og siderne er ét stykke og bagstykket har ekstra plads for komfort. De er i størrelserne fra 2XS til 4XL, så de passer de fleste mænd og store drenge.
Jeg har aldrig før testet undertøj og aldrig syet klassiske boxershorts, så det er to nye ting for mig. Jeg måtte også lige spørge min mand, om han var okay med, at jeg skulle tage billeder af ham i undertøj. Det er trods alt december og ret koldt og vi tager altid test billeder udenfor😂. Han gik med på ideen og brokkede sig (næsten) ikke over, at skulle udenfor i underbukser. Jeg skylder ham vist lidt😉

Wardrobe by Me Boxer Shorts sewing pdf pattern wovenThe boxer Shorts is a pretty fast sew, especially if you use the second method mentioned in the instruction for putting in the elastic. That is a super easy and fast way to do that.

The Boxer Shorts er hurtige at sy, især hvis man følger den anden metode til isyning af elastikken som mønstret foreslår. Det er super nemt og hurtigt.

The instructions are well illustrated and easy to follow. You´ll have plenty of time to sew boxers for the men in your family before Christmas.
This is also a great pattern for girls and women; some of the testers made Boxers for themselves too. Great for sleeping in😴 or just hanging out.

Instruktionerne er godt illustrerede og nemme at følge. Du kan sagtens nå at sy boxershorts til mændene i din familie inden jul.
Det er også et fedt mønster til piger og damer; flere af testerne syede Boxers til sig selv også. De er gode at sove😴 i eller bare hænge ud i.

The Boxer Shorts will be on sale for a little while. Go join the Wardrobe by Me Pattern Support group on Facebook. Lots of great help and inspiration.

The Boxer Shorts er nedsat i en kort periode.

Santi Skirt from Designer Stitch

Australske Designer Stitch har lavet endnu et fedt mønster. Denne gang er det en nederdel i denim, Santi Skirt.
Jeg er virkelig stor fan af pyntestikninger på denim. Jeg synes det ser fedt ud og det er vældig tilfredsstillende at sy. Der er masser af lejlighed til at sy pyntestikninger på Santi Skirt.

Australien Designer Stitch has released another great pattern. This time it is a cool denim skirt, Santi Skirt.
I absolutely love topstitching on denim. It looks cool and is super satisfying and very gratifying to sew. Plenty of 
opportunities for topstitching on the Santi Skirt.

Designer Stitch Santi Skirt pdfpattern sewing testingJeg har længe tænkt på, at ville sy en denim nederdel, så da jeg så at Ann fra Designer Stitch søgte testere, sprang jeg på.
Det er jeg glad for, at jeg gjorde. Santi er en fornøjelse at sy og meget nem at style. Den kan gå sammen med alt fra en stor sweater til en fin silkebluse. Ligeledes er både højhælede, gummisko eller støvler fede til.

I have wanted a denim skirt for some time now, so when Ann from Designer Stitch called out for testers for Santi, I knew I had to join.
I´m so glad I did. Santi is a really enjoyable sew and 
sew easy to wear and style. It looks great with a silk shirt, with a sweater or just a t-shirt. I is equally great with both high heels or boots.

Santi kan sys i mange materialer, men gør sig bedst i rimeligt kraftigt stof uden stræk. Den ville også være fed i fløj, f.eks som det jeg brugte til Tanner. Jeg ved ikke lige hvor jeg har købt det stof jeg har brugt -det var på mit lager, men god mellemtung denim kan fås mange steder.

Santi kan be made in different material, but the best choice is something a bit heavy without stretch. I would be great in the to colored corduroy I used for Tanner. Not sure where the fabric for this skirt came from -it was in my stash.

Designer Stitch Santi Skirt pdfpattern sewing testing
Santi sidder lidt under den naturlige talje og er meget nem at tilpasse. Faktisk kan man bare klippe linnings-stykkerne ud og se, om den sidder det rigtige sted på kroppen. Da nederdelen er let a-formet, vil der typisk nemt være plads til hofter og bagdel.

Nederdelen har også mønster til bæltet som er formsyet så det passer til. Det bliver bundet foran med en snøre, men jeg har også set én forlænge bæltet lidt og sætte en knap i.

Santi sits a little below the natural waist and is very easy to fit. Actually you just need to cut out and sew the back and front facing and see if it fits. Since the skirt is a bit a-line, the hips and bum will typically have plenty of room if it fits in the waist.

The skirt also has pattern pieces for the belt, which is formfitting. It is tied in the front with a leather string. I have also seen it lengthened a bit and closed with a button.

Santi is on sale for a little while, so go get is while it is. Go join the Designer Stitch Pattern Support for help or more inspirational photos of Santi. If you join, you get a code for additional $1 of the sales price.

Santi er nedsat i pris for en kort periode. I Designer Stitch Pattern Support gruppen, kan du altid få hjælp eller se flere testeres billeder af Santi. Hvis du melder dig ind i gruppen, får du en kode med yderligere $1 rabat på udsalgsprisen.

Hubert Hoodie Sweater

Hubert from Wardrobe by Me has been given a make-over. The instructions are even clearer and the pictures updated.
I made a Hubert for my teenage son and he loves it. He has already requested more!! I usually don´t sew for him, as he is very picky, but he really loves the Hubert. My daughter at 17 even requested one of her own. Guess I have presents for Christmas all lined up.

Hubert fra Wardrobe by Me er blevet opdateret med bedre instruktioner og flere billeder.
Jeg har syet Hubert til min store søn og han er vild med den og vil gerne have flere!! Jeg syr normalt ikke til ham, da han er ret kræsen med, hvad han vil have, men Hubert faldt i god jord. Min datter synes også den er skøn og vil også gerne have én. Så er julegaverne da delvist i hus.
Hubert hoodie Wardrobe by Me WbM pdfpatterns sewing sweatshirt

Hubert is an easy sew and in the proces of making this one, taking photos was by far the biggest obstacle😂. The weather in Denmark is pretty crappy at this time of the year and it gets dark way too early to shoot photos after school and work.

Hubert er let at sy og det mest tidskrævende i denne process, var at få taget billeder. Vejret i Danmark pt er ikke ret godt og det bliver alt for tidligt mørkt. Det lykkedes dog en dejlig søndag middag.

The Sweatshirt comes together easily and only takes a few hours to make from cutting to finish. The instructions and illustrations are Wardrobe by Me´s usual standard = clear and precise.

Sweatshirten er hurtigt lavet og den tager kun et par timer fra klipning af stof til trimning af de sidste tråde. Instruktionerne er klare og præcise, lige som de altid er med Wardrobe by Me´s mønstre.

My son is pretty slender, but likes his hoodies on the baggy side, so I went up a size to accommodate for that. Other than that, I did not make any changes. When making more Huberts, I think I will add a drawstring to the hood – just for fun and maybe a bit of color. He is not too big on many colors, but I think he would appreciate a fun-colored drawstring.

Min søn er høj og slank, men kan godt lide hættetrøjer til den store side. Derfor gik jeg op én størrelse, men har 

ellers ikke lavet nogle ændringer i mønstret eller pasformen.
I de næste Hubert´er tror jeg jeg sætter hættesnor i. Min søn er ikke til spraglede farver, men jeg tror han ville synes en hættesnor i en sjov farve kunne være cool.
