fullsizeoutput_b4d
Now the awesome FREE Uvita Top pattern from Itch to Stitch, which I made when it first came out in dec 2017, has an Add-on pattern. Uvita itself is a relaxed knit top with boatneck and two sleeve length options. With the Add-on you can have Uvita with all these extra options:

  • Unlined Hood with optional drawstring
  • Floppy stand-up collar
  • itch-to-stitch-uvita-top-add-on-pdf-sewing-pattern-line-drawingsSleeve cuff
  • Sleeve cuff with thumbhole
  • Flare sleeve
  • Kangaroo pocket
  • Patch pocket
  • Bottom Band
  • Layers feature (print only the sizes you need)

I choose to add a hood, sleeve with thumbhole and the bottom band to my new Uvita and I love it. So comfy and with all these extra options, there is plenty of possibilities for playing and creating all different kinds of styles.

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 valueūüĎćūüŹĽ‚úĒÔłŹ

Nottingham top by Itch to Stitch

Nottingham Top¬†fra Itch to Stitch er en super tilf√łjelse 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. S√•dan 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 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.

M√łnstret er ret nemt og hurtigt syet. Det er vurderet som et begynder+ m√łnster, men det eneste man skal kunne er at sy en halsrib i og is√¶tte √¶rmerne. √Ürmerne skal s√¶ttes i, fordi sides√łmmen og √¶rmes√łmmen ikke er √©n lang linje. Det er nu nemt nok, man skal bare f√łlge instruktionerne. Knuden kan se forvirrende ud, men igen; instruktionerne er en stor hj√¶lp.
Nottingham Top er helt p√• h√łjde med Itch to Stitch’s normale gode standard ift m√łnster, 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.

If√łlge m√łnstret skal man bruge let til medium jersey med godt str√¶k 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.
M√łnstret er fedt i b√•de ensfarvet og m√łnstret stof, men jeg manglede ensfarvede toppe, s√• det har jeg selvf√łlgelig lavet. Jeg skal helt sikkert ogs√• have lavet √©n 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 selvf√łlgelig mine elskede Mountain View pull on Jeans fra Itch to Stitch. Jeg elsker de bukser og har g√•et 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.

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 f√łr. Jeg har faktisk heller aldrig rigtigt g√•et i leggings, men efter den her laange, gr√• vinter har jeg virkelig lyst til at f√• kjole og nederdele p√• igen og nylonstr√łmper er bare alt for koldt. Leggings m√• v√¶re l√łsningen!
fullsizeoutput_799For at v√¶re √¶rlig findes der mange leggings-m√łnstre, s√• hvordan v√¶lger man lige det rigtige. Penny Classic Leggings fra Sinclair Patterns kunne v√¶re et godt sted at starte. Allermest fordi jeg har h√łrt godt om designeren, men ogs√• 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 dressūüėČ

At sy de her leggings er ret let, men hvis du aldrig har syet leggings f√łr, 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 l√¶nge kan du have skabet fuld af leggings; m√•ske √©n farve til hver kjoleūüėČ

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 m√łnster, har jeg ogs√• syet et par l√łbebukser med nylon/spandex til form√•let. De blev ret fede og jeg skal helt sikkert have lavet flere par i forskellige l√¶ngder.
Jeg valgte at sy med “comfort”linningen, fordi jeg elsker den yogabukse effekt det giver. Det er super behageligt og de bliver p√• 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.
