Maya from Designer Stitch

Maya Linen Pants
 from Designer Stitch is a great pair of casual pants with a lovely yoga waistband. They are perfect for a day on the beach or strolling round in sandals or flipflops. They are meant for linen, but other bottom weight fabric can work well too.

I made my Maya in a dark red washed linen from Danish Citystoffer. I haven’t sewn much in linen before, but it was a really nice experience. It is also very lovely to wear, you just need to embrace the wrinkles, as it wrinkles easily.Maya Linen Pants Designer Stitch pdf pattern

Maya Linen Pants is a very easy and quick sew. You can print the pattern, cut and sew them in a few hours. Great beginner project.

Another great thing about the Maya Linen Pants, is the price. It is on sale on the site, but if you join the Designer Stitch Pattern Support FB group, you’ll find a code to get it for 💕FREE💕.

Giverny by Itch to Stitch

Jeg blev helt slået bagover, da jeg så tegningerne til Giverny fra Itch to Stitch. Den er så smuk; meget feminin med pufærmer, bisé’r, slids foran, tætsiddende i taljen og med LOMMER. Jeg er også ret vild med kjoler med lidt fylde og så er hele kjolen foret. Masser ting at elske ved Giverny.
Der er mulighed for to forskellige ærmelængder, bindebånd eller ej og 5 skålstørrelser. Altså ingen behov for FBA eller SBA.

I nearly fell of my chair when I saw the drawing for Giverny from Itch to Stitch. It it gorgeous; very feminine with puff sleeves, pin tucks, a front slit, fitted at the waist and POCKETS. I also love a skirt with some fullness and the whole thing is lined. Lots of things to love about Giverny.
She has options for two sleeve lengths, sash or no sash and 5 cup sizes.Giverny Itch to Stitch pdfpattern sewing Ilovesewing newpdfpattern dress

Jeg vidste nu også godt, at det ikke ville blive en hurtig og nem ting at sy. Masser af detaljer at være opmærksom på og et glat for at få styr på.
Selve kjolen var rimeligt hurtig at sy sammen, takket være instruktionerne, men jeg kæmpede lidt med foret. Jeg er ikke så vant til at sy med for og jeg havde valgt et meget levende og glat for af viscose. Næste gang vælger jeg fór af bomuld eller acetat.

I also knew that it would not be an fast and easy sew. Lots of details to pay attention to and also slippery lining to tackle.
The dress went together fairly easy, thanks to the great instructions, but I was struggling a bit with the lining. I don’t usually sew much with lining and I chose a very slippery rayon lining. Next time I will go for a cotton or at least a acetate fabric.Giverny Itch to Stitch pdfpattern sewing Ilovesewing newpdfpattern dress

Til yderstof valgte jeg en mørkeblå chambray. Jeg har et eller andet med chambray for tiden. Jeg er tiltrukket af denim-looket og letheden i stoffet. Jeg var også sikker på, at det lidt rå i stoffet ville spille godt sammen med Giverny og nedtone prinsesse-looket. Ikke at der er noget galt med prinsesse-look, det er bare ikke mig.
Når vi er ved emnet; inspirationen til kjolen kommer fra et billede af vore egen prinsesse Mary.

For the main fabric, I went with a dark blue chambray. I really have a thing for chambray at the moment. I love the denim look and the lightness of the fabric. I also felt the raw, melange look would play nicely with Giverny and tone the princess look down a bit. Mind you, I love the feminine princess look, just not on me.
Speaking of princess; the inspiration for the dress, was from a picture of the Danish Princess Mary.

Jeg har lavet kjolen i en str 8. Eneste tilretning var at sy den lidt ind ved nakken og at gøre øverste bagstykke lidt kortere. Jeg kan kun anbefale at sy en prøve først, gerne kun overdelen. Når der er tale om figursyet i fastvævet stof, fór og en del detaljer, er det synd ikke lige at gøre sig den ulejlighed at sy en prøve op først. Surt at bruge så meget tid, kun for at finde ud af, at den ikke passer.

I made a size 8. Only alteration was taking it in a bit at the back of the neck and shortening the back a bit at the waistband. I definitely recommend to muslin with a project like this; it is fitted in woven fabric, lined and takes some time and effort. It is a real shame to go through all this, only to find out, it dosen’t fit.

Jeg føler mig så godt tilpas i Giverny og er super glad for den. Jeg kommer til at bruge den igen og igen, det er jeg sikker på.
Hvis du har lyst til at sy den, er den nedsat i en kort periode her.

I feel soo good in Giverny and I love this dress. It will get lots of wear, I sure of it.
If you would like to get Giverny, you’ll find her here. She is on sale for a short periode of time.

Jeg er tosset med pyntestikninger og med at sy i fast stof. Jeg elsker at tage mig god tid og gøre mig umage. Det er dog kun sjovt, hvis man har fidus til designeren og ved at alt passer perfekt sammen. Det gør det med Anna Shirt. Den passer flot, instruktionerne er gode med fine illustrationer og skjorten har så fine detaljer.

Anna Shirt from Wardrobe by Me is a classic front button shirt with yoke, stand and collar. It has all the details of a real shirt and I love that is has a mate, the Jensen Shirt.
I love topstitching and sewing with woven fabric. I really enjoy taking my time and doing the best I can. That is, however, only fun if you trust the designer and know that everything comes together perfectly. Anna Shirt does. It has a great fit, lovely instructions with great illustrations and such beautiful details.
