My friend Diane of Sewing with D and I decided to work together to sew up two items on our project list, the Lisbon Cardigan and Liana Stretch Jeans from Itch to Stitch (ITS). We had already completed our Lisbons and were about to start on our Lianas when the opportunity to participate in a blog tour in support of Kennis from Itch to Stitch came to the forefront. (See why here)
Diane and I quickly decided to open up our plans to sew together to the entire Itch to Stitch facebook group so others could join in with us and let’s just say some sewing got done. Hoorah!
For my stop on the ITS Love tour, I’d like to present my Lisbon and Liana outfit.
I made up the Lisbon in an interlock knit that’s been in my stash for over five years. The Lisbon is super easy and fast to make, especially if you skip the buttons. I think I finished this project in less than 2 hours cut to finish.
Being on a bit of a pant making stretch, the Lianas came together easily for me too. All the time I’ve invested into working out my fitting needs and having more practice making pants is really starting to pay off.
Special thanks to Diane and all the sewists that joined us to make our Liana jeans. I’ve been needing the extra motivation lately.
As always, please visit my fellow bloggers today.

Great outfit! The jeans are beautiful… great job!
These jeans look great! I’m addicted to topstitching and your’s is fabulous! I haven’t got the Lisbon yet, but all the versions I see are really cute. Maybe I should buy myself some patterns for Christmas!
Your jeans look amazing! I love the detail you added with the selvedge on the front pockets. So cute!
You’ve done a great job leading the Liana sew-along (and the ITS Love Blog Tour)! Your jeans looks fantastic on you. I can see all the effort (and previous practice) you put in them.
I love your jeans! That selvedge is too cute! I haven’t made jeans yet but really want to! I’m avoiding buying new ones so that I have incentive!
