Yoga set OHM – Schnittchen patterns

Here’s my contribution to Schnittchen’s Sewing Around The World project. In case you haven’t heard of it, the project features 12 sewing bloggers around the world sewing Schnittchen pattern.

My pattern is called Yoga set OHM, it is actually from the Winter 2015 collection. As the name suggests, this is a set of patterns for tank top, leggings, and a sweater made of jersey. You can wear them for yoga and they are comfortable too for lounging at home.

Schnittchen patterns also sent me the fabrics. They are organic cotton jersey from Lebenskleidung in Berlin. These fabrics are so beautiful and comfortable! These pictures don’t do any justice showing how comfortable they are to my skin.

According to the size chart, I fall under size 34. This size is drafted for height 167.2 cm while my height is 150 cm. I like that the size chart also includes height, which is very important to me as I’m a petite.

I didn’t find lengthening/shortening lines on the pattern, but it can simply be made by drawing new lines across the pattern perpendicular to the grainline.

Since these patterns are very simple, I didn’t make a muslin. Instead, I measured the length of each pattern and compared it to my body to find how much that I needed to shorten.

My alterations and notes for the patterns:

  • Shortened the sweater bodice above the waist 3 cm
  • Shortened the sweater sleeves 8 cm
  • Shortened the tank top bodice across armhole 1 cm
  • Shortened the tank top bodice above waist 2.5 cm
  • Shortened the leg 4 cm above knee and 4 cm below knee.
  • The waistband for the leggings is way too small. I made new waistband by measuring the waistline on the leg and reduce the width by 85%.

If you’ve already made T-shirts and leggings, these patterns are quite easy and all three can be finished in one afternoon. However, the instructions on this pattern are brief without pictures nor diagram. So although the pattern is marked as easy, someone who is very new in sewing might find some difficulties following it.

The instruction sheet mentioned that a detailed step-by-step photo tutorial is available at the tutorial page on Schnittchen website. Unfortunately the tutorial is not available yet. I find this a bit disappointing since the pattern was released in winter 2015. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. I also wish that they include stretch factor for the leggings fabric since the drafted waistband for my size is quite small. I think it might need a stretchier fabric.

At the end of the day, I’m quite glad to have some comfortable and basic addictions to my wardrobe. I can see these three will get lots of wear!

Sarong monpe pants

Another monpe pants for my husband because he really loves the first couple of pants that I made him several months ago. The pants have elasticated waist, no side seams, one front pocket, and knee patches on the inside. The fabric is Indonesian sarong that I bought in Indonesia in summer holiday. It is cotton so the pants are actually more suitable for summer. I should make him another pair for autumn!

The monpe pattern is from Japanese shop Unaginonedoko.  This is quite an easy pattern. If you can make a pajama pants, I think you wouldn’t have too much trouble with this pattern. If you’d like to buy the pattern, Unaginonedoko do international shipping for worldwide customers. The English page is now being prepared, and for the time being you can contact their email address for purchase: u-info@unagino-nedoko.net. If you have Instagram, you can also check out their profile: http://www.instagram.com/unaginonedoko_monpe/

This mesh nylon tote bag is very simple project that has quickly became a favourite of mine. I wasn’t planning to make a bag when I found this mesh nylon in the fabric store. This fabric is quite stiff with large diamond-shaped mesh. I thought it would make an interesting bag. The fabric is very easy to sew with thicker… Continue Reading
