Itch To Stitch Blog Tour 2017

One of the best things that came with having this blog was being able to connect with so many persons from around the world and being part of this amazing community. The sewing community have showed already how they can make great things and this time was no different.

When Kennis, the designer behind Itch to Stitch, shared that she had her home burglarized and all her equipment that allowed her to work was gone, the sewing community rapidly got together to help her. Many bloggers, fabric shops and designers got together to show how much we like Kennis’ patterns and work.

I’ve tried a couple of Kennis patterns in the past and really liked them. By the way, I need to make another Lisbon Cardigan! But this time I wanted to try the new patterns, so I decided to make the Brasov Wrap Top.

I really like the way a wrap top looks, so feminine and flattering. Also, I think it suits well my body type and I feel great while I’m wearing it (that’s the most important part, don’t you agree?).

The Brasov is available from size 00 to 20 and according to my measurements, I made a size 00 grade to size 0 at the hip and the fit is perfect. The only thing I changed was taking 3cm to the sleeve length, but I am not tall and that modification is something I do frequently.

The construction is quite interesting, a bit like assembling a puzzle, but with good instructions, so it was in fact easy. Just took a little longer than a usual t-shirt due to the side and shoulder pleats, but so worth it the extra time to make it. The pleats look so neat and makes the fit perfect.

The fabric is a wonderful jersey from Nosh and I believe it works wonderfully. Style and comfort in one piece of garment is just what I want.

This pattern is classified as Intermediate, but I wouldn’t say it’s difficult. It does have some construction steps that are a little time consumer and you need to pay attention to which side of the fabric you are cutting because the front right and left aren’t symmetrical. But the instructions are very clear and I didn’t have any issue.

I also wanted to make the Hvar but unfortunately, I did not have the time because I wanted to make a muslin first. It is in my plans though and the fabric is ready.
