Balboa Skirt(s) by Itch to Stitch

Balboa Skirt fra Itch to Stitch er virkeligt en alsidigt mønster. Du får ikke bare ét nederdel mønster med forskellige muligheder, du får TRE nederdele med en masse valgmuligheder; længde, enkelt eller dobbelt voilant, midtersøm til når du skal klippe på skrå og flæser. De tre nederdele er; en lige, en a-line og en “tørklæde”-nederdel. Jeg ved slet ikke om det er et ord på dansk, men det er den ternede jeg har syet til min datter.

Balboa Skirt by Itch to Stitch is truly a multiple-options-kind of pattern. Not only does it have one skirt pattern with different options, it is THREE skirts with multiple options; length, single or double flounce, center seam for bias cut fabric and ruffles. The skirts are straight, a-line and handkerchief.

Linningen er lavet så man ikke har en masse stof der klumper sammen i taljen. Den er med elastik, men sidder glat i taljen.
Jeg har tidligere prøvet en del forskellige måder at lave elastisk talje på, men denne her er ny. Den er super nem og rigtig godt forklaret og vist i instruktionen. Den bliver rigtig fin.

The waist is designed in a way so you have no bulk at the waist. It is elastic, but with no fabric bunched up at the waist.
I have tried many different methods of creating elasticated waists, but this one was new to me. It is very easy, though and throughly explained in the instructions. And it gives a nice finish, too.

Mønstret er lavet til mellemsvært stof, men jeg har set det syet op i lette stoffer også og det fungere også super fint.
Jeg har lavet to nederdele til min datter, begge i viscose jersey og én til mig selv i enkeltstrikket ren bomuld.

The pattern is designed for medium weight knit fabric, but I have seen it in lighter versions too and it works fantastic.
I made two versions for my darling daughter in rayon knit and a skirt for me in single knit cotton jersey.

balboa skirt itch to stitch pdf pattern sewing
Den første nederdel jeg syede, var tørklæde-versionen til min datter. Jeg havde egentligt ikke meldt mig til at teste lige den version, men da jeg så den syet op af én af de andre testere, måtte jeg bare sy den til hende. Jeg vil også sy en til mig selv senere.
Til min datters syede jeg str 2, men brugte en str 0 linning. Den sidder perfekt og eneste tilretning er 2 cm i længden.

The first skirt I made, was the handkerchief skirt for my DD. I didn’t sign up for testing this one, but once I saw some tester versions, I fell in love and had to make one for her. A version for me will come at a later date.
For her I made a size 2, but used the size 0 waistband. Perfect fit, I only lengthened by 2cm.

balboa skirt itch to stitch pdf pattern sewing
Den anden nederdel til min datter, var efter hendes ønske, en maxi længde a-line nederdel. Hun er ret høj og stangtøj i hendes str, er sædvanligvis alt for kort. Selvom jeg faktisk forlængede denne her 4 cm, kunne den godt bruge en smule mere.

The second one for DD was a maxi skirt by her request. She’s pretty tall, 176 cm, and rtw maxi skirts in her size, are usually too short. Even though I did lengthen her skirt by 4 cm, it could still do with a few cm more.

Til mig selv har jeg syet en lige nederdel i str 10 uden tilretninger. Meget fin og komfortabel og jeg kommer helt sikkert til at bruge den på havet denne sommer. Jeg er vild med det maritime look.

balboa skirt itch to stitch pdf pattern sewing
For myself I made a straight skirt in size 10 with no alterations. Very nice and comfortable and will get lots of wear going sailing this summer. I love the maritime look.

Balboa Skirt er super nem og hurtig at sy. Du kommer sikkert til at bruge mere tid på at vælge hvilken én du vil sy og bestemme stof, end på at sy den😅.

Balboa Skirt is an easy and very fast make. You’ll probably spend more time picking out which of the many options you’ll begin with and picking out fabric, than sewing up the skirt itself😅

Hvis du er klar og vil have et pdf mønster med næsten uendeligt mange muligheder, så kan du finde Balboa Skirt her hos Itch to Stitch og det er endda nedsat indtil ……..

If you are game and wants a pdf pattern with almost endless possibilities, you can get Balboa Skirt here on Itch to Stitch and it is even on sale until the ………

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🦸🏼‍♀️

fullsizeoutput_e78
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.

fullsizeoutput_e7e
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.

fullsizeoutput_e81
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❤️

I’m so honored to be in the Itch to Stitch Blog Tour 2019. I am a huge Itch to Stitch fan and have been since I discovered pdf patterns a few years ago.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patterns
Choosing two pattern to sew up for the tour was both easy and difficult. I knew I wanted to sew more Mountain View Pull-on Jeans, as the first pair I made back in March 2018 have been worn to death and I really need more.

DSC_3738
For the second pattern I wanted something I hadn’t made before and something that would go well with Mountain View. I went Paulina Top as she met the requirements and I really love the layering effect.

I previously made the jeans in denim, but wanted twill for this version. I love denim, but the gorgeous fall colors  from the Metermeter twill collection is really lovely and it has the right amount of stretch.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patternsOne of the reasons I fell for Mountain View is how easy they are to fit. Apart from the back seam looking awesome, it also makes the jeans very easy to fit.
Last time I made a size 10, but this time I had to go with the 12, because I have gained some weight. I added 0,5 cm to the back thigh, like last time, but I also added 1″ in length in both thigh and at the bottom, adding 2″ in total for length. My height is 175cm, so adding length is usual.
Last alteration was taking about 1″ from the width of the legs from the knee down.

After sewing the wine colored pair of jeans, I went straight back to the shop for more of the same fabric. The colors are amazing and second time around, I choose Khaki.
This turned out to be the perfect pattern/fabric match🥰. Perfect stretch and firmness. Pure love, and the best thing is; I can just go back to the shop and pick all the colors I want😁.

Itch to Stitch Blogtour Mountain View Paulina pdf patternsFor the Paulina top I decided on a ponte in black for the main part. I wanted a color that would go with both the wine and the Khaki jeans and I love black. For the woven contrast, I went with some Nano Iro from Metermeter I had in my stash.
Only alteration is, that I omitted the cutouts.
I really like the layering effect you get with this pattern and ponte turned out to be perfect.
The Paulina Top is also a great choice if you, like me, want to conceal some added weight😂.

I am really happy with my new addition to my ever-growing collection of ITS patterns.
The Mountain View Pull-up jeans and the Paulina Top makes me feel more ready for Fall.

Kalispell from Itch to Stitch

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewingKalispell er endnu et skønt kjolemønster fra Itch to Stitch. Kennis har virkelig et talent for at lave flotte, detaljerede og feminine kjoler i fast stof. Her er et andet eksempel: Giverny.
fullsizeoutput_c24
Skørtet har indadvendte læg både bagpå og foran, så den sidder til i taljen og åbner sig op nedad til.
Kjolen har stolpe og kapper hele vejen ned, hvilket jeg er ret vild med. Det ser stiligt ud og så behøver man ikke lynlås. Win-win. Jeg har endda gjort det endnu lettere for mig selv, ved at sætte trykknapper i istedet for knaphuller og knapper😉.

Kalispell is another gorgeous dress pattern from Itch to Stitch. Kennis really has a talent for making lovely, detailed and feminine dresses in woven fabric. Here’s another example: Giverny.
Kalispell has some great details and I find it to be for the intermediate+ sewist. It has front and back princess seams and with cup sizes from A to DD it is not hard to fit at all. I didn’t have to make any alterations at all.
The skirt has inverted box pleats both on the front and back so it is fitted at the waist and flares out further down.
The dress button down, a feature I really love. It looks stylish and eliminates the need for a zipper. Win-win. I even went the easy way and used snap buttons instead of sewing buttonholes😉

Hvorfor synes jeg den er til øvede? Kjolen er nem nok at sy, men man skal være opmærksom på pasmærkerne på stoplen for at få den til at lægge sig pænt. Det er nu ikke et problem med mønstrene fra Itch to Stitch; de passer altid perfekt.
Bare husk at matche dem med dem på selve kjolen.

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing
Why intermediate+? Well the dress comes together easy enough, but you have to pay close attention to the notches on the neckbands in order for it to lay flat. Not at problem; with Itch to Stitch the notches always matches up perfectly, but you have to pay some attention.

Kalispell er let til mellemsvært fastvævet stof. Det kan være af næsten alt, det skal bare have lidt fald for at lægge sig pænt i læggene.
Jeg har brugt babyfløjl og det er helt perfekt.

Kalispell Itch to Stitch pdf pattern sewing
Kalispell is for woven light- to medium weight fabric in almost any fabric, it just needs a bit of drape to play nicely. 

I went with a very soft baby corduroy and I love it.

Kjolen er i én længde, men den er nem at forkorte eller forlænge, man skal bare bruge linjerne på mønstret til det.
Man kan sy kjolen med enten flagreærme eller cap-ærme. Mine skuldre er for brede til flagreærme, så jeg har syet med cap-ærme.
Og, yearh…Kalispell har LOMMER! Så behøver jeg vist ikke siger mere?

The dress has one length, but is easily lengthened or shortened using the lines for that. 
It also has the option for a cap sleeve or flare sleeve. My shoulders are too wide for the flare sleeves, so I went with the cap sleeve. 
Oh, and I almost forgot: Kalispell has POCKETS! Need I say more?

Instruktionerne er som altid vildt gode og hvis du bare følger dem, skal du nok komme i mål.

Instructions are as always extremely well made and if you just follow them, you’ll be in good hands.

Kalispell er nedsat indtil den 31. marts 2019

Kalispell is on sale until the 31st of March 2019

Envigado Vest from Itch to Stitch

skærmbillede 2019-01-28 kl. 14.16.06Hvem elsker ikke et hurtigt, nemt mønster, men nogen gange er det super tilfredsstillende, at sy noget mere komplekst og detaljeret. Envigado Vest fra Itch to Stitch er sådan et mønster. Detaljerigdommen og finishen er helt i top; der er ikke sprunget over gærdet nogen steder og ingen detaljer er ladt ude for at gøre tingene lettere.

I love a fast and easy pattern as much as the next person, but sometimes it is very satisfying to sew something more complex and detailed. Envigado Vest from Itch to Stitch is one of those patterns. The amount of details and the finish is topnotch; no corners have been cut and no details eliminated to make this fast and easy. 

Envigado Vest Itch to Stitch pdf patterns
Envigado Vest er perfekt til flere lag med en trøje eller t-shirt under indendøre på denne årstid eller som et ekstra lag, hvis det bliver lidt køligt om sommeren, foråret eller efteråret.

The Envigado Vest is perfect for layering with shirts and tops when indoor and for putting on when it is a bit chilly outside in summer, spring and fall.

Envigado Vest har nogle fede detaljer:
-store lommer med flap med trykknap
-bindesnor i taljen
-mulighed for foret hætte
mulighed for hong kong søm
-uforet vest
-forskellige skålstørrelser

fullsizeoutput_b42Envigado Vest has some great features:
-big pockets with buttoned flaps
-drawstring at waist
-optional lined hood
-optional hong kong seam
-unlined body
-different cup sizes

Jeg havde ikke brug for at lave tilretninger overhovedet. Muligheden for at vælge skålstørrelse, gør det meget let at få til at passe og prinsessesømmen på både front og bagside, gør det endnu lettere.
Min Envigado er størrelse 8-10 med en skålstr B. Jeg har gradueret fra str 8 foroven til en str 10 i talje og over hoften.
Jeg har valgt at afslutte sømmene indvendigt med hong kong søm og det er blevet så fint. Det er sådan en smuk måde at afslutte sømme på. Hvis du vil læse mere om det, kan du finde det her.
Stoffet er en bomuldstwill fra Kludemanden og foret til hætte, lommer og til hong kong søm er et skjortevare også fra Kludemanden.

I didn’t have to make any adjustments at all. The possibility to choose your cup size makes this vest easy to fit and the princess seams on both back and front makes fitting even easier.
My Envigado is a size 8-10 with a cup. I graded from size 8 at the top to size 10 at waist and hips.
I choose to sew my vest with hong kong finish and I love it. It makes for such a pretty inside on your garments. There is a great diy on hong kong seams on the blog.
Fabric is a blue cotton twill from by stash and the lining for pockets, hood and hong kong seams is a blue and white striped shirting.

Envigado Vest er nedsat i denne uge på Itch to Stitch

Envigado Vest is on sale this week on Itch to Stitch

dsc_2478Uvita comes together smoothly and very fast. The instructions are impeccable as always in Itch to Stitch patterns and the illustrations are clear.

I made this Uvita in a lovely french terry in cotton with a bit of lycra from Lila-Lotta. They have some gorgeous prints, so go check the out. This was in my stash, so it may not be available anymore. For this top I liked the bit of stretch the lycra gave. When I make Uvita again, I will choose a fabric with a little more stretch; just for comfort.

Uvita is FREE on Itch to Stitch and the Uvita Add-on pack with all the options are only $4 for a few more days. After that, it’s still only $5. Great value👍🏻✔️

Crystal Cove from Itch to Stitch

itch to stitch crystal cove cami silk pdfpattern pdf patternEndnu et skønt mønster fra Itch to Stitch. Crystal Cove Cami er en virkelig fin camisole til fast stof. Den har tynde spaghetti stropper og en ryg med dobbelt stof, hvilken gør den meget komfortabel. Den er både super at have indenunder eller bære alene.

Another stunning pattern from Itch to Stitch. Crystal Cove Cami is a gorgeous cami for woven fabric. It has thin spaghetti straps and an overlapping back, making this cami very comfortable. It is great for layering and for wearing on its own.

itch to stitch crystal cove cami silk pdfpattern pdf pattern

Crystal Cove har flere cup størrelser, hvilket gør den nem at tilpasse. Alt du skal gøre, er at finde din cup størrelse og justere stropperne så cami’en sidder godt og indsnittet passer. Jeg har syet en str 8 med B cup. Det er den størrelse jeg plejer at bruge fra Itch to Stitch. Jeg har ikke lavet andre tilretninger.

Crystal Cove has multiple cup sizes, making fitting a breeze. All you have to do, is to find your cup size and make the straps the length that suits you best and place the darts in the correct place. I made a size 8 with a B-cup. Very standard for me in Itch to Stitch patterns. I didn’t make any adjustments at all.

itch to stitch crystal cove cami silk pdfpattern pdf pattern

Da jeg syede Belle Skirts, begyndte jeg at lave en DIY til tynde stropper/rouleau, men jeg fik den ikke gjort færdig. Da jeg skulle lave stropper til Crystal Cove Cami, fik jeg den lavet færdig. Du kan finde den her.

I started a DIY on how to sew spaghetti straps or rouleau when I made the Belle Skirts, but never finished it. Making straps for Crystal Cove Cami made me finish it. You’ll find it here.

itch to stitch crystal cove cami silk pdfpattern pdf pattern

Crystal Cove er ikke et svært mønster, men hvor svært afhænger af hvilket stof man vælger. Mønstret er lavet til let fastvævet stof. Jeg syede først i den skønne viskose crêpe fra Atelier Brunette. Det samme stof som jeg brugte til Aurora og Summer Skirt. Jeg er skør med det stof og de farver det kommer i. Viskose crêpe er lettere at sy i end alm vævet viskose.
Min anden cami syede jeg i silke fra en lokal forretning. De har virkelig meget silke, men desværre en dårlig hjemmeside.

Crystal Cove is not a difficult pattern depending on which fabric you use. The pattern calls for lightweight woven fabric. I used a lovely rayon crêpe from Atelier Brunette for my first cami. The same one I used in Aurora and Summer Skirt. I love that fabric and the colors it comes in. Rayon crêpe ia fairly easy to sew with, easier that rayon challis.
For my second cami I used a lovely silk from a local shop.  They have a big selection of gorgeous silks, but a bad online shop.

itch to stitch crystal cove cami silk pdfpattern pdf patternJeg er super glad for begge cami’er og kommer til at bruge dem meget. Faktisk har jeg allerede brugt den blå en del, endda inden jeg fik den fotograferet. Det gør jeg ellers aldrig og jeg var nødt til at vaske og stryge den før billederne kunne tages.
Sammen med den blå, har jeg mine elskede Sequoia shorts på. Dem bruger jeg virkelig meget her i varmen. Sammen med den bordeaux cami har jeg mine Mountain View Pull on Jeans. Jeg er SÅ glad for de bukser og skal have syet flere til efteråret.

I love both camis and they will get lots of wear. In fact I have worn the blue one many times already. I even wore it before taking pictures, which I never do, and had to wash and iron it before getting the photos taken.
With the blue cami I’m wearing my beloved Sequoia shorts, which I wear ALL the time and with the burgundy silk cami, I’m in my trusted Mountain View Pull on Jeans. I love those jeans and will have to make more in the autumn.

Crystal Cove Cami er nedsat i en kort periode.

Crystal Cove Cami is at reduced price for at short periode of time.

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.

fullsizeoutput_90a
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.

fullsizeoutput_90d

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.

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💕.

fullsizeoutput_8fc
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.

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.
