Idag deltager jeg i ovennævnte blogtour hosted af Laura med bloggen Craftstorming.
Under navnet Titchy Threads har Laura udgivet nogle skønne mønstre - heriblandt Twisted Trousers og Twisted Tank, som denne tour omhandler. Ah, I er med på den lille twist (sorry, ku' ikke lade være).
Jeg har tidligere syet bukser efter Lauras 'Small Fry Skinny Jeans' mønster. Det mønster skal jeg da vist lige ha' hevet frem fra gemmerne igen!
Nu var det tank toppen det her skulle handle om. Jeg har valgt den nemme løsning uden twist, fordi jeg synes det egnede sig bedst til mit stofvalg. Den grå tank har fået sorte kanter og ditto lomme. 9 årige Bertram er ret skinny og hans brystmål placerede ham i en str. 7 år, mens han i længden er en str. 10, som jeg så af en eller anden grund lavede om til en str. 9. Perfekt passende tank, som han allerede knuselsker. Der er sgu da også ret cool, hva? Læderlomme og hele svineriet.
Today I'm participating in the Twisted Tuesday Tour hosted by the sweet and talented Laura of Craftstorming who is designing patterns under the name Titchy Threads. Laura offers two Twisted patterns - the Twisted Trousers and the Twisted Tank. For this tour I have chosen to be on Team Tank.
I present to you Bertram's Twisted Tank (sans twist). One of the cool features on this pattern is of course the twisted design, but because of the busy fabric print I went with the regular tank version which is also included in this pattern.
Bertram is 9 years old but pretty skinny. I made him a size 7 lengthened to a size 9. In fact it should have been a size 10 length - don't know why I ended up with the size 9. Well, the fit is spot on anyways.
I can definetely see many more of these to come. Bertram loves his new cool leather pocket tank. The pattern runs from 3 months to 12 years.
Oh, and please take a look at Laura's 'Small Fry Skinny Jeans' pattern as well. Excellent!!
Thank you so much for inviting me on this tour, Laura. Stay brillant!
Bertram's bermudas are based on pattern 'l' (knee-length shorts) from the Japanese sewing book 'Happy Homemade Sew Chic Kids'. I really like the fit of these. Easy to sew but with finishing tips that just add that little extra to the shorts. There's a roll-up version of the same pattern which I definetely also must try for young Mr. B. For his younger sister I might do a tiered blouse and some shorts from this book as well. And a dress. There's always a dress. Stay tuned. Thanks for letting me try this book, Tuttle Publishing.
