Patrones pants DD finished

The pants are finished. DD is not sure about the style on her. Not very surprising, she usually wears jeans, and this is much wider than jeans. But I like the pants, and in the end they were very easy to construct. As I mention in my review too, the size was pretty close, which adds to my liking of this magazine. It's good to know that you can rely on a size chart. The only change after the first fitting was letting out waist and hip a little bit (but not so much as needing a larger size) and make the crotch depth a bit deeper.



The waistband is a separate piece, I don't know if I've done this correct, but it at least looks like the magazine.

This issue of Patrones (264) is certainly a keeper, there are a lot of patterns I like in it.

A few pictures, the yellow jacket en the top are high on my "to sew" list. The pictures sometimes are the same as in BWOF: the details are hidden, and with Patrones no website with pictures to see them in more detail.


  1. I LOVE the waistband treatment. Tell DD that these pants are all the rage in the fall styles coming out right now in the magazines. She's going to be the coolest girl in school!

  2. Yes, that's how my waistband/separate belt is, too! You've got it right! I made the yellow jacket as part of my Easter Suit, and it is gorgeous made up - there are a lot of details not shown, such as the bound buttonholes, but I know you'll do a great job on it. (You always do!). I've wanted that lighter colored jacket, too. Which reminds me, maybe I can put my royal blue fabric to good use and make it . . hmm . . .

  3. The pants look great! To make them cooler, wear them with flats or sneakers.

    Those Patrone garments look really nice. I suppose they have line drawings in the mag?

  4. The trousers turned out fabulous! I am surprised that a 44 isn't too big on your daughter, though I never tried Patrones pants before (maybe I'll get the chance on my next project). I can say size 42 fits me very well as dresses and blouses.
    That is one of my favorite recent Patrones issues too; I love the jacket that Summerset made in red...

  5. Oh, I have this issue too. I love the yellow jacket. DD is going to be very hip in these pants. I concur on the sneakers. Converse or Vans are the thing, according to my dd

  6. Very cute! I'm going to have to give a try to one of the patterns in the issue I have!

    Always love your inspiration and such attention to detail!

    Hope your DD enjoys wearing these.


  7. Hey!
    I made the yellow jacket and sadly the collar seems to be smaller on the photo than in real, so the collar turned out beeing HUGE. Just wanted to tell you that in case you dont like big collars like me :)

  8. Hi Sigrid .- trousers was perfect, you also chose a fabric pretty well and very apparent to this model. You have to do the yellow jacket, is a model that I love, really, even the color. Also emerging trends mark the use of jackets like this, a little wider and straight. Best wishes, Paco.

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, see you soon.

  9. They look fabulous - just like the picture in Patrones. Interesting waistband treatment.

  10. Great job! I have plans to make that white jacket you pictured. Who knows when it will actually happen, but it's definitely on the list.

  12. Lucky DD. I really like the waistband treatment. Special detailing is always a plus.

  13. Love the waistband treatment - innovative. Those pants look absolutely great on you.

How to sew a sleeveless top with facings

How lovely to read the nice comments on my jacket. Grumpy without coffee commented that the original artist for the cartoon (which apparently was for books) was Sarah Andersen. Thank you for mentioning it. Beckster asked about the way I closed the center back seam of the lining. I did it by machine. She also said “Although I have not tried it, I have been told that the lining can be made by using the pattern minus the seam allowance and facings.” Well, certainly not without seam allowances, it should be without hem and without the facings. Important is that you have about 5 cm hem in the jacket for this to work. And I would always make a center back pleat. It gives you space to move without the lining pulling on the fabric. Next time I make a jacket I will try to make photos of the process of bagging the lining (Patsijean said she would have liked to see them and probably more would be interested). Might take a while though, see the end of this post.-----------------------------I mad…

Dress Burda June 2018, construction picture

Once in a while a pattern shows up in a magazine that I want to make immediately. This Burda dress from the June issue is one of those.It’s mainly the linedrawing that’s interesting, as the fabric they used for the magazine issue is not really showing the design lines. There would have been better accent options for the piping they uses. If you’re like me and in general don’t look at the Burda instructions but do it by experience or your way anyhow, DON’T go on autopilot with this one. Sleeveless dress: I close shoulder seams at the last possible moment. Not here, as you have to sew the bias band in between the center and side parts. The band has no seam (and I wouldn’t add one, too many layers of fabric), so the shoulder has to be sewn earlier than I’m used to.Darts: I was inclined to sew all darts as first step and realised really just in time that the front dart is taking up the edge of the band. Front and back band! I was stupified why the angle of the band was not matching the si…

Hilarious description

This week I bought the January Burda issue and browsing through it this top, and especially its description had my attention. Written by someone who has no understanding of modern, functional fabrics and never goes to the gym. Don’t know whether it’s the same in the English issue of the magazine, but in Dutch it says “Sport shirts often have the disadvantage to be close fitted.  This restricts your movement. Our suggestion: make this shirt with a full draped back.“I didn’t care to check their description of sports shirts they published before, but thought this one was hilarious.Off to trace a pattern from this magazine (not this one).
