Show Your Stoff Blog Tour

Welcome to my stop on the Show Your Stoff Blog Tour! 
I'm excited to be sharing what I sewed up from the Zierstoff Sewing Patterns.
This is a new to me pattern shop, and it's always fun to try a new designer--especially a European one. 
These patterns are all translated from German. 
One thing that is different than other patterns I've tried is with taping these together. 
You have to tape the pages edge-to-edge...no overlapping. 
I'm not sure I like it as much as overlapping as it's harder to fold the master copy of the pattern. 
But, that is a minor--the pieces all fit nicely together and the end result fits nicely. 


I chose the Nicki Capris.
They come in two versions--knit and woven. 
I made the woven version with woven cuffs and waistband. 


The fun thing is that they actually fit under my 35 week pregnant belly! 
I'd only recommend these for maternity if you don't mind wearing your pants under your belly rather than over. Or if you generally can--I know every woman has a different pregnant belly.


I'm really looking forward to Spring and Summer when I can actually wear these outside. 
They are very comfy and I'm sure the knit ones would be even more so just because of the softness of a knit fabric.

  1. These look so cute! I wish I could've sewn something like this for myself when I was pregnant. They would have been perfect for both during and after.
    I love my Nicki's in knit, they are super comfy and look smart with the faux fly and pockets.

  2. Your Nicki Capri's turned out great! Excellent wardrobe staple, and after looking through the tour photos they are already on my to sew list!
