Summer Skirt by Wardrobe by Me

Summer skirt Wardrobe by Me rayon viskose pdf patterns sewingMaj måned har været den varmeste og tørreste maj i 125 år i Danmark eller sådan noget lignende.
For en sejler og syer som mig, giver det masser af muligheder, så jeg har sejlet en del og syet på min nye sommergarderobe.
I min sommergarderobe skal der være nederdele og t-shirt og hvor heldig kan man være; Wardrobe by Me har netop designet og udgivet en nederdel og en t-shirt.

The month of May has been the warmest, driest May in 125 years in Denmark or something like that. 

As a sailor and a sewer that gives me lots of opportunities for fun, so I have been sailing a lot and working on a new summer wardrobe.
In my summer wardrobe there has to be skirts and t-shirts. What luck; Wardrobe by Me has just released both a t-shirt and a skirt.

Summer Skirt er feminin med slåom effekt og flæsekant.
Linningen er så smart designet, at den sidder flat foran og er elastisk bagpå. Det er jeg ret vild med. Det er samme konstruktion som på Paperboy Pleated Pants og Belle skirt.

The Summer Skirt is so feminine with the wrap effect and the ruffles. 
The waistband is ingeniously constructed in a way that makes it flat in the front and elasticated in the back. I like that. It is the same construction as was on the Paperboy Pleated Pants and the Belle Skirt.

Lone SummerskirtJeg har syet min første Summer Skirt i en meget lækker viskose crêpe fra Atelier Brunette i midnatsblå. Jeg har syet i det stof et par gange. Jeg elsker faldet i stoffet og farverne er bare så flotte. Min Aurora er samme stof.

I made my Summer Skirt in a very love Rayon/viskose crêpe from Atelier Brunette in midnight blue. I love that fabric and has used it several times. I love the drape and the feel of the fabric and the colors are gorgeous. My Aurora is the same fabric.

Summer Skirt er ret nem at tilrette. Den eneste tilretning jeg har lavet, er at jeg har forlænget den med 4cm ift den korte version. Det var sikkert ikke nødvendigt, men som lærer og sejler er det rart at være ordentligt dækket.
Nederdelen er i tre længder og det er super nemt at forlænge eller korte af. Man kan også gøre flæsen bredere og dermed få lidt mere længde.
Der er masser af muligheder for at få det lige som man vil have det.

The Summer Skirt is very easy to fit. Only alteration I made was lengthened 4 cm and looking at it now, I probably didn’t need to. I like the length though; both as a teacher and a sailor you need to be covered properly.
The skirt comes in three different lengths and it is very easy to make it just the length you like. Making the ruffle wider, will also make the skirt a bit longer, if you prefer it that way. Lots of options for fitting length.

Rullesømsfod 7400At lægge en så lang flæse op og få den til at rynke, kan være et langsommeligt projekt, især med levende stof som viskose. Der er dog et par måder at gøre det lidt lettere.
Da jeg skulle lægge flæsen op, brugte jeg rullesømsfoden på min symaskine. Så slipper du for tons af nåle, at skulle folde og presse først. Bare sy langsomt og styr stoffet så det folder rigtigt i trykfoden. Det kræver lidt øvelse, men er det hele værd.
Efter at have lagt flæsen op, rynkede jeg den med min overlocker. Det fede ved det er, udover at det er nemt, så har man allerede ordnet sømrummet.
Jeg har fundet denne instruktion på Youtube. Jeg brugte ikke overlockeren og rynkefoden til at sy flæsen fast på skørtet, men rynkede bare flæsen og syede den på på symaskinen. Så meget lettere og hurtigere.

Hemming a ruffle that length and making it ruffle can be tedious, especially in fabric like woven rayon. There is a few tricks to make it easier, though.
When hemming, I used the hemmer presser foot on my sewing machine. No pins, no folding and pressing first. Just go slow and feed the fabric into the foot while sewing.
After hemming the loong strip of fabric, I made the gathering on my serger. Bonus is, that the seam allowance is now finished and does not fray.
I found this instruction on Youtube; I didn’t sew the ruffle onto the skirt with the serger, but I made the gathering with it. So much faster.

Nottingham top by Itch to Stitch

Nottingham Top fra Itch to Stitch er en super tilføjelse til min “Memade” gardarobe. Jeg elsker en god sy-udfordring, men nogen gange er det bare fedt at sy noget der er hurtigt og nemt. Sådan er det med Nottingham Top.

Nottingham Top Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing rayon knitNottingham Top from Itch to Stitch is a great addition to my memade wardrobe. 
I love big and complicated challenges, but sometimes it feels grand to make something that comes together easily and fast. Nottingham Top is a sew like that.

Nottingham Top har tre forskellige ærmer; albuelængde, flagreærme og langt ærme. Jeg elsker lange tætsiddende ærmer, så jeg syede begge mine toppe med lange ærmer. Jeg skal nu helt sikkert også have syet nogle toppe med albuelængden.

Nottingham Top Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing rayon knit
Nottingham Top has three sleeve options; elbow length, a flutter sleeve and a long sleeve. I love long and slender sleeves, so I made the long sleeves for my first two tops. I will def. need to sew the elbow length too.

Mønstret er ret nemt og hurtigt syet. Det er vurderet som et begynder+ mønster, men det eneste man skal kunne er at sy en halsrib i og isætte ærmerne. Ærmerne skal sættes i, fordi sidesømmen og ærmesømmen ikke er én lang linje. Det er nu nemt nok, man skal bare følge instruktionerne. Knuden kan se forvirrende ud, men igen; instruktionerne er en stor hjælp.
Nottingham Top er helt på højde med Itch to Stitch’s normale gode standard ift mønster, instruktioner og hvordan det hele passer sammen perfekt.

This is an easy and pretty fast sew. It is rated as a beginner+ pattern, but all you have to be able to do, is attaching the neckband and the sleeves. The sleeves has to be set in, because the side seam and the seam on the sleeve are not aligned. The instruction, however, makes this go together like a breeze. The knot may look confusing; it is not once you see the instruction.
Nottingham Top is up to Itch to Stitch’s normal standard; great pattern, in dept instructions and everything goes together smoothly.

Ifølge mønstret skal man bruge let til medium jersey med godt stræk begge veje. Jeg har syet begge mine toppe i viskose jersey. Jeg elsker faldet i viskose jersey og det ene stof har endda burnout effekt.
Mønstret er fedt i både ensfarvet og mønstret stof, men jeg manglede ensfarvede toppe, så det har jeg selvfølgelig lavet. Jeg skal helt sikkert også have lavet én i stribet; det ser fedt ud ved knuden.

The pattern calls for light to medium weigh fabric with good stretch both ways. I have made both of my Nottingham Tops in rayon knit. I love the drape of rayon and the light blue one is a burnout knit.
The pattern is great in both solid and striped or patterned fabric; I just needed some solid tops. I might make some in striped fabric later on. I like the effect by the knot.

Mine jeans er selvfølgelig mine elskede Mountain View pull on Jeans fra Itch to Stitch. Jeg elsker de bukser og har gået virkelig meget i dem.

The jeans I’m wearing is of course my beloved Mountain View Pull on Jeans from Itch to Stitch. I love those jeans and have been wearing them a lot.

Hvis Nottingham Top er for dig, så kan du finde den her; Nottingham Top.
Den er nedsat i en kort periode.

You might want to get this gorgeous top? Well, it’s on sale for a short while;

The Danube Jean Skirt by Itch to Stitch

Danube Jean Skirt Itch to Stitch pdfpattern new pdf pattern denim
As you may know I love denim, I love topstitching and I love skirts. Danube Jean Skirt from Itch to Stitch has all that and more.
The Danube Jean Skirt is a classic five-pocket jean-style skirt. It is slim fitting and has slits at the sides.

Danube Jeans Skirt is meant to be made in non-stretch fabric, but it is not restricted to denim. It can also be also corduroy, twill or other bottom weight fabrics.
I chose denim because, well, I love denim💕.

If you have made jeans before, sewing Danube is pretty straight forward. The details are the same as in most jeans, both the construction and the topstitching. If, however, you are new to sewing jeans and scared to try it, maybe because of the fitting and details, Danube Jean Skirt is a very good place to start. You get to practice sewing all the details and topstitching, without all the hassle of fitting jeans.

fullsizeoutput_8c9
Fitting Danube is not hard. I have a protruding bum and had to shave of a bit of the yoke and add some length over the bum. Easy peasy, as you have both yoke and backseam to play with. Once you have everything sewn up, you might have to turn the skirt inside out and pin and sew the side seam in to your liking.
I always encourage people to make a muslin before cutting into the good fabric. It is very fast, as you don’t need to sew pockets, nor front or back, or any finishing.

Danube Jean Skirt will be a stable in my wardrobe and I have both a lovely two colored corduroy and a pinstriped denim ready to sew up two more skirts.

Danube is on sale for a short period of time.

Eden Jumpsuit from Designer Stitch

Jeg har aldrig lige kunne se mig selv i jumpsuit og da jeg sagde ja til at teste Eden Jumpsuit fra Designer Stitch, var det min intention at sy den til min datter. Det viste sig, at hun ikke ville være hjemme til prøvesyning, så jeg endte med at lave den til mig selv i stedet for. Mit held. Jeg er ret glad for min Eden Jumpsuit; den er meget komfortabel og jeg føler mig velklædt i den.

I never really thought Jumpsuits would be for me and when I signed up for the test for Eden Jumpsuit from Designer Stitch, I wanted to make it for my daughter. Well she ended up not being around for fitting, so I made it for myself. That was my luck. I really like my Eden Jumpsuit and feel very comfortable and stylish when wearing it.

Eden Jumpsuit er både en jumpsuit, en kortbenet jumpsuit og et par bukser med elastik i taljen. Der er desuden mulighed for et kold-skulder ærme. Jeg synes kold-kulder ærmer er flotte, men ikke til mig. Jeg er ret bredskuldret og det er jeg bange for at sådan et ærme vil fremhæve yderligere. Jeg kunne sagtens finde på at lave både den kortbenede jumpsuit og bukserne.

Eden Jumpsuit pattern is both a jumpsuit, a playsuit and pants with elasticated waist. It also has options for a cold shoulder sleeve. I like the look of the cold shoulder, but it is not for me. My shoulders are wide enough and I think a sleeve like that would accentuate them too much. I might make both the playsuit and the pants.

Designer Stitch Eden Jumpsuit playsuit Linen Hør pdfpattern pdf pattern new pdf patternDet er ikke svært at tilrette Eden Jumpsuit, men jeg vil altid anbefale, at man laver en prøveopsyning for at sikre den perfekte pasform. Mønstret kommer med 4 forskellige cup størrelser, så det gør tilpasningen lettere. Jeg har syet den i str 5 (42) med B cup. Eneste tilretning var, at jeg syede dragten lidt ind i siden øverst og lagde lidt længde til i taljen. Jeg er 175cm høj.

Fitting Eden Jumpsuit wasn’t hard, but I would still advice you to make a muslin (toile) to ensure perfect fit. The pattern comes in 4 cup sizes, so that takes of some of the fit-pressure. I made a size 5 (42) B cup. All I needed to to, was taking out a little of the side seams in the top and to add some length at the waist (I’m 175cm tall).

Jeg har syet Eden i en sort hør/viskose blanding. Den føles rigtig rar og jeg håber den holder sig flot, men nu må vi se. Næste gang vælger jeg en ren hør. Jeg er blevet ret vild med hør💕.
Til mønstret skal der bruges 2,6 meter á 150cm. Mit stof var ikke helt så bredt og jeg brugte alle de 3 meter jeg havde købt. Med hør skal man lige tage ekstra forholdsregler ift til krymp. Det krymper en del.

I made Eden in a black Linen/rayon mix. It feels really nice and I hope it holds up well., but we’ll see. For my next Eden I will choose 100% linen. I have come to love linen💕.
The pattern requires 2,6 meter og 150cm wide fabric. My fabric was not as wide and I used up all the 3 meters I bought. With linen you have to make sure you buy enough; it shrinks quite a lot.

Eden Jumpsuit er nedsat det første stykke tid og fås her.

Eden Jumpsuit is on sale for a little while. Get it here.
