ITS Time To Sew an Uvita

Click through the links in the above graphic to see all the posts

ITS about time I sewed up the Free Uvita pattern* from Itch to Stitch (ITS) to wear this fall with my Liana jeans. What Itch to Stitch pattern have you been putting off making? Now’s the time to get it figured out, because during the blog tour this week Kennis is featuring a daily sale. You’ll need to read the days blog posts to find out about the sale patterns. (Read on to see today’s sale and a GIVEAWAY)

The Uvita is a relaxed, dropped-shoulder top perfect for getting comfy and cozy in the cool weather. I wanted to do a colorblocked version in French Terry from my stash and this color combo of greys ended up working the best together. The good thing is I busted some remnants, the bad thing is I made myself yet another grey top to add to my stacks of grey tops for fall/winter.

My new Uvita pairs perfectly with my Liana jeans. The Liana’s are the first pair of pants/jeans I ever made almost two years ago now. Aren’t they holding up well? These are going to last me a good while.

I made my second pair of Liana’s last fall and had a little hiccup with the waistband. I over stretched the front corners so they look weird and I forgot to add the twill tape to stabilize the top edge of the wasitband and that turned out to be a big woopsie in this stretch denim. As I wear them, the top edge of the waistband stretches and flips out in the front. It is totally annoying. I thought I could live with it, but no. These are under alteration so I can love them like they deserve.

My third pair of Liana’s is in the planning stage. I have a medium blue denim washed and ready, but I can’t seem to get past the step where it is just sitting on my cutting table.

  1. I love grey tops!!!! My Bonn shirt is grey too LOL! And your Liana jeans…I really need to tackle the daunting task of fitting this pattern. I managed to make a shirt fit so I can fit jeans, can’t I???

    1. I would encourage you to take on making jeans. The Liana’s were the first pants I ever made and it was a time investment to get the fit right. Spending the time to understand the fit really set me up to succeed in all the pants that I’ve made following. The actually construction of jeans is not as difficult as it would seem.

  2. Liana is the pattern than convinced me I could make jeans that are better than RTW. I love that pattern! I like the way you ended up color blocking your Uvita! I’m pulling my pattern out today and cutting a new one for fall transitional weather!
