Belle Skirt from Wardrobe by Me

Apart from Santi it has been a while since I have sewn a skirt. I love sewing and wearing skirts, the right pattern just hasn’t been around. Until Belle  from Wardrobe by Me that is. Wardrobe by Me Belle Skirt pdfpattern sewingWhen I saw the drawings for this skirt, I just knew I had to make it. It is so feminine and flowy and has gorgeous lines, especially the high-low hemline. 
What sold it to be completely, was that it is fitted in the waist and increasingly flared towards the hem. No gatering. I’m not very fond of gatering at the waist or hips, as I think it makes me look wider (which I don’t need).
The belt finishes of the look and can be tied in a bow or just a knot.
The elasticated back waistband is a clever designfeature, making this very comfortable and easy to fit.

Wardrobe by Me Belle Skirt pdfpattern sewingBortset fra Santi er det et stykke tid siden jeg sidst har syet en nederdel. Jeg elsker både at sy og gå med nederdel, men der har ikke lige været det rette mønster. Indtil Belle fra Wardrobe by Me altså.
Da jeg så tegningen til nederdelen, var jeg solgt. Den er så feminin og let og har nogle skønne linjer, især den høj-lave foran-bagpå linje.
Hvad der solgte den helt var, at den sidder til i taljen og bliver tiltagende mere vid nedefter. Ingen rynken her! Jeg er ikke ret vild med rynker i taljen eller på hoften, da jeg synes det får mig til at se bredere ud (og det er ikke ønskeligt).
Bæltet giver lige det sidste finish og det kan bindes i en sløjfe eller knude.
At taljen er med elastik bagpå, er en genistreg; det gør nederdelen fantastisk behagelig at have på og gør den nem at tilpasse.

Styling Belle is a breeze. It looks bohemian like and relaxed in flipflops or sandals, stylish and welldressed in high heels and cool with boots, making this a very versatile skirt. For the younger Vans, like my daughters, are very cool.

fullsizeoutput_7e1Det er super nemt at style Belle. Du bliver lidt flippet og afslappet med klipklapper eller sandaler, velklædt og flot i høje hæle og lidt rå og cool i støvler. Til de lidt yngre er Vans, som dem min datter har på, ret seje.

Belle is designed to be made in light weight woven fabric. I have made two Belle Skirts so far, one for me and one for my teen, both in 100% woven rayon. I like the feel of the rayon, but dream of a Belle Skirt in light silk💕.
The flower patterned fabric is a new for me. I am not very colorful when it comes to choosing fabric and usually goes for solid, darker colors, but this dress is soo pretty in both solid and pattern, that I just had to try. I really love it. I bought the burgundy to make another skirt for myself, but my daughter really wanted one too and who can resist when your big teenager wants to wear mummy made clothes.

Belle Skirt er designet til at blive syet i let, fast stof. Jeg har syet to Belle, én til mig selv og én til min teenagedatter, begge i 100% fast viskose. Jeg kan godt lide viskose, men drømmer om en Belle i let silke💕
Det er usædvanligt for mig at sy i mønstret stof. Jeg er ikke ret farverig, når det kommer til at vælge stof. Jeg vælger sædvanligvis ensfarvet mørkt stof, men Belle er så fin i mønstret, at jeg måtte prøve. Jeg er vild med den og føler mig så godt tilpas. Det bordeaux stof købte jeg for at lave én Belle mere til mig selv, men hvem kan modstå det, når en teenager gerne vil gå med hjemmesyet tøj og ønskede sig en Belle.

I didn’t make any alterations to the patterns. Fitting is pretty easy, as it comes in two different lengths. I made mine in the short length and the burgundy in longer.
I made a size 42 with elastic measure for back waist from size 40 for me and a size 34 for my daughter.

Jeg har ikke lavet tilretninger til mønstret. Den er nem at tilpasse, da den kommer i to længder. Jeg har lavet min i den “korte” udgave og den til min datter i længere..
Min er en str 42 med elastik bagpå i str 40 og min datters er i str 34.

Mountain View from Itch to Stitch

Mountain View from Itch to Stitch is my new best friend! Pull on jeans in stretch denim with a wide waistband, topstitching and pockets, stretch fabric and straight legs, but no zipper or button. They look like regular jeans, but they are sooo comfortable and they will stay in place and not let you down. Who dosen’t need a friend like that??
Skærmbillede 2018-03-03 kl. 13.01.17

Mountain View fra Itch to Stitch er min nye bedste ven! Pull-on jeans i stræk-denim med bred linning, pyntestikninger og lommer, strækstof  og lige ben, men uden lynlås og knap. De ligner rigtige jeans, men de er sååå komfortable og de bliver siddende hvor de skal. Hvem har ikke brug for sådan en ven??

I made a straight size 10 and only did very little fitting. I added the, for me, usual 0,5cm extra room in the thighs and took out the same amount of fabric horizontally from the back thigh.
Mountain View Itch to Stitch pdf pattern pull-on jeans topstitchingFor my definitely wearable muslin, I used a brushed cotton twill with 3% lycra. They are very soft and comfortable. The only downside is, that the softness from the fabric being brushed, seems to be a magnet to lint.
My second pair is made from a dark denim with the appropriate amount of stretch. They are supposed to be made with fabric with a least 20-30% stretch. Both of mine is just shy of 30%. With the denim pair I also took in 1cm in each side at the bottom of the legs. 

Jeg har syet en str 10 med ganske lidt tilretning. Jeg har lagt 0,5cm til ved inderlårerne, standard for mig, og taget 0,5cm af længden på baglåret.
Min prøvemodel er syet i en børstet bomuldstwill med 3% lycra. De er super bløde og behagelige, men de tiltrækker fnuller som en magnet.
Mit andet par er syet i en mørk denim med den rette mængde stræk. Der skal helst være 20-30% stræk. Begge mine stoffer har haft lige under 30%. På denim bukserne har jeg også syet dem ca 1 cm ind i hver side.

Mountain View Itch to Stitch pdf pattern pull-on jeans topstitchingWhen sewing Mountain View you have a great opportunity to play with the design on the pockets. I usually make my pocket designs pretty straight forward, but there are so many fun and beautiful designs for pockets. Just do  google or Pinterest search or see some of the other testers designs. Very inspirational.

I can definitely see myself making heaps more Mountain View in the future💕

Når man syr Mountain View har man virkelig mulighed for at lege med designet på lommerne. Jeg laver dem sædvanligvis ret kedelige, men der er så mange sjove og flotte muligheder. Prøv bare at søge på google eller Pinterest eller se nogle af de andre testere af Mountain View. Meget inspirerende.

Jeg skal helt sikkert have syet flere Mountain💕

The top is of course Visby, also from Itch to Stitch. This one without the henley placket or hood. Blogpost about it here.
Mountain view is on sale for a short periode of time.

Trøjen er selvfølgelig Visby, også fra Itch to Stitch. Denne gang uden Stolpelukning eller hætte. Jeg har skrevet om den her.
Mountain View er nedsat i en kort periode.

Love Yourself in Pantone Spring Colors 2018

Spring into color blog tour sewing pdf patternSpring is around the corner (go away snow!) and it is time to start thinking about some sewing for spring. I am not usually too concerned about which colors goes where, I just go with what I like. But I also like a challenge and the Spring into color blogtour by Sewing By Ti  is a great one at that.

Det bliver snart forår (gå væk sne!) og det er tid til at begynde at tænke på at sy lidt til forårs garderoben. Jeg går sædvanligvis ikke så meget op i hvilke farver der passer hvornår, jeg syr bare med de farver jeg kan lide. Men jeg kan nu godt lide en udfordring og Spring into Color blogturen af Sewing By Ti var oplagt.

Pantone_2018_spring_color_ReportThe Pantone Spring Color Report 2018 does not have many of my usual colors and I was hard pressed to find some that I really like and would wear. I went with the Lime Punch and Sailor blue (also I had both in my stash). 

Pantones forårsfarver indeholder ikke mange af mine sædvanlige farver og det var svært at skulle vælge nogle som jeg ret faktisk kunne se mig selv i. Jeg valgte Lime Punch og Sailor Blue (begge havde jeg på lager) 

Carma Camisole Ti-blog tour Love yourself pdf patterns

What was not hard to find was what to sew. I have a bit of a Love Yourself from Wardrobe by Me obsession, but never mind; you can’t have too much underwear, can you?
I prefer the panties in the collection and I absolutely love the Carma Camisole. I have sewn more versions here and here.

Hvad der ikke var svært at vælge, var hvad jeg skulle sy. Jeg er helt tosset med Love yourself mønstrene fra Wardrobe by Me. Skidt med det; man kan aldrig få for meget undertøj, vel?
Jeg er mest til “panties”-versionen og jeg er helt vild med Carma Camisole. Jeg har skrevet mere om dem her og her.

fullsizeoutput_7c4What is extra great about sewing underwear is the amount of fabric needed. It takes so little and you can use up leftover fabric. You can even color block for extra effect or effective use of leftovers.

En extra bonus ved at sy undertøj, er den lille mængde stof man skal bruge. Der skal så lidt til så man kan hurtigt få bugt med stoffet i restebunken. Det er endda muligt at sætte flere forskellige stykker stof sammen. Det kan se fedt ud og man kan få brugt endnu mindre stykker.

Carma Camisole Ti-blog tour Love yourself pdf patterns
Why Love Yourself? I have sewn quite a few different underwear patterns and none of them fit like these. They come with different rises, they stay in place and they cover your bum.
They can be sewn in different types of fabric; the lime set is a rayon/lycra knit and the blue is a cotton/lycra knit.

Hvorfor lige Love Yourself? Jeg har prøvet en del forskellige trussemønstre og ingen af dem har passet som de her. De har to forskellige højder, de bliver hvor de skal og de dækker rumpen.
De kan sys i forskelligt stof; det limegrønne set er viskose/lycra jersey og det blå er bomuld/lycra jersey.

Penny Classic Leggings from Sinclair Patterns

I have never sewn leggings before. Actually I don’t usually wear leggings, but the winter in Denmark has been long and grey and I really need to wear dresses and skirts again and nylons are too cold. Leggings could be the solution! 
Jenny Classic Leggings sewing pdf pattern Sinclair PatternsBut let’s face it; there are lots of patterns for leggings out there to choose from, so where to begin? Well, Penny Classic Leggings from Sinclair Patterns looked like at good place to start, mainly because I had heard good things about the designer, secondly because of the option for comfort waistband.

Jeg har aldrig syet leggings før. Jeg har faktisk heller aldrig rigtigt gået i leggings, men efter den her laange, grå vinter har jeg virkelig lyst til at få kjole og nederdele på igen og nylonstrømper er bare alt for koldt. Leggings må være løsningen!
fullsizeoutput_799For at være ærlig findes der mange leggings-mønstre, så hvordan vælger man lige det rigtige. Penny Classic Leggings fra Sinclair Patterns kunne være et godt sted at starte. Allermest fordi jeg har hørt godt om designeren, men også pga muligheden for “comfort” linningen.

Sewing the leggings was pretty straight forward, but if you are new to leggings, or sewing, the instructions were really good and have lots of pictures and explanations. This is a quick sew; you can have a whole wardrobe of leggings in no time at all; one color for each dress😉

At sy de her leggings er ret let, men hvis du aldrig har syet leggings før, eller du er ny indenfor syning, bliver du glad for instruktionerne. De er rigtigt gode, med masser af billeder og forklaringer.
De er hurtigt syet og inden længe kan du have skabet fuld af leggings; måske én farve til hver kjole😉

Jenny Classic Leggings sewing pdf pattern Sinclair PatternsApart from using this pattern for leggings made from cotton/lycra, I also made a pair of runningpants with an appropriate nylon/spandex blend. They turned out great and I will make some more in different lengths.
I choose the comfort waistband because I like the yoga-pants feel. It is super comfortable and they stay in place.
I made a straight size US10 and didn’t have to make any alterations.

Udover at sy leggings i bomulds/lycra med det her mønster, har jeg også syet et par løbebukser med nylon/spandex til formålet. De blev ret fede og jeg skal helt sikkert have lavet flere par i forskellige længder.
Jeg valgte at sy med “comfort”linningen, fordi jeg elsker den yogabukse effekt det giver. Det er super behageligt og de bliver på plads.
Jeg har syet en str US10 og de passer perfekt. Jeg havde ikke behov for at lave nogle tilretninger.

Pick up your pattern today and then come join the upcoming Sew A Long on the Sinclair Pattern Page.

Hvis du har lyst til at sy Jenny Classic Leggings og har brug for hjælp og støtte eller bare kan lide at sy med andre, så er der en “sew along” på vej på Sinclair Patterns Page på FB.

The top is my trusted Carma Camisole from Wardrobe by Me. I have more on that here.

Toppen er min favorit Carma Camisole fra Wardrobe by Me. Mere om den her.
