Eddystone Jeans by Itch to Stitch

Itch to Stitch Eddystone jeans sewing pdf patternJeg er tosset med at sy jeans, så da Kennis fra Itch to Stitch spurgte efter testere til Eddystone Jeans, var jeg helt med.
De her jeans er super oppe i tiden med den høje talje, tætsiddende talje og hofte og lidt mere vidde i benene. De kan lavet i en ‘girlfriend fit’ eller demi-boot fit (mere eller mindre vidde)

I have a passion for sewing jeans, so when Kennis from Itch to Stitch put up the Eddystone Jeans for testing, I was game.
These jeans are very on trend with the high rise, fitted from waist through hips and with the option of ‘girlfriend’ or demi-boot fit in the legs. We went with the ‘girlfriend’ fit.

Jeg ville gerne sy dem til min datter; hun er vild med højtaljede bukser, men synes det er svært at finde nogle der passer hende fordi hun er høj og slank/smal. Her kommer super-mor ind🦸🏼‍♀️

I wanted to make these for my darling daughter, since she loves high-rise trousers, but is having a hard time finding some that fit due to her slim silhouette and long legs. Mum to the rescue🦸🏼‍♀️

Til mønstret skal bruges lidt kraftigere stof med en smule stræk (ca 10% (ikke 10% lycra, men stoffet skal kunne strække sig ca. 10%)). Det kan være denim, fløjl eller bokse twill.
Mathilde ville gerne have lys denim, hvilket jeg ikke havde i skabet. Jeg bestilte online hos Stofdepotet, men var lidt nervøs ift levering pga Covid-19. Ingen problem; Stofdepotet leverede hurtigt.

The pattern calls for bottom weight fabric with a bit of stretch (about 10%). This can be either denim, corduroy or twill.
Mathilde requested light blue denim. I had to get it online as I didn’t have any on hand and was a bit worried about delivery time in these Covid-19 times. Stofdepotet came through and the fabric was delivered in good time.

Ifølge målskemaet passer Mathilde en str 0, men jeg lavede et par tilretninger for at få en endnu bedre pasform.
Jeg lavede følgende tilretninger.;

  • Lagde længde til. Mathilde er 176 cm og mønstret er lavet til én på 168 cm. Det passede med 5 cm fordelt på de “Lengthening lines”, ét på låret og ét på læggen.
  • Jeg fjernede en kile bagpå over rumpen. Prøvemodellen bulede ud der, fordi hun har en bagudstruttende bagdel og lidt svaj i ryggen.
  • Jeg fjernede lidt længde på baglåret ved at tage en kile væk. Længden på sidesømmen bibeholdt jeg, men fjernede lidt længde på indersømmen ved at lave en kile her også.

Mathilde fit into a size 0, but I had to make some adjustments for a perfect fit.
Here’s what I did;

  • Lengthen. Mathilde is 176 cm tall and the pattern is made for 168 cm. I found that lengthening by 5 cm total was perfect. 2,5 cm on each of the two lengthening lines on the legs itself.
  • I took out a wedge at the back above her derrière to accommodate for protruding cheeks/swayback.
  • I took some length off of the back thighs to reduce the folds on the back legs. I did it by taking of a wedge, keeping the length on the side seam and only reducing the inner seam. To make the inner seams match, I stretched the fabric a bit while sewing.

Det var en sand fornøjelse at sy Eddystone, både fordi jeg elsker at sy jeans, men også fordi jeg har så stor tiltro til Kennis´ mønstre og instruktioner. Jeg skal ikke gætte mig til noget og jeg ved, at der ikke bliver hoppet over hvor gærdet er lavest nogen steder.

Sewing Eddystone was a pleasure, both because I love sewing jeans and because I feel so safe and well taken care of with Kennis’ patterns and instructions. There’s no second guessing with her work and no cutting corners with her methods.

Men hvorfor sy jeans?;
Så hvorfor er jeg så vild med at sy jeans selv? Det ved jeg ikke. Måske fordi folk tror det er svært at sy jeans? Det er det ikke. Helt ærligt. Man skal bare gøre sig umage med pyntesømmene/sy langsomt og så følge instruktionerne ét step ad gangen.
Måske er det også fordi det er så svært at finde jeans i butikkerne der passer? At sy jeans der passer, er bare det bedste.

Skal du også prøve?

Eddystone er et godt sted at starte. Eller hvad med mine ynglings wannabe jeans, Mountain view. De er også fantastiske❤️

Sewing jeans. But why?;
So why is sewing jeans so satisfying to me? Dunno. Maybe because jeans are supposed to hard to sew? They are not. Trust me. All you have to do is going slow with the topstitching and follow the instruction.

Maybe I love sewing jeans, because I have such a hard time finding jeans that fit rtw? Getting jeans to fit is just the best feeling ever.

Want to try?

Eddystone is a good place to start. Or maybe my all time favorite wanna-be-jeans, Mountain view. They are awesome, too❤️
