Candy Skinny Jeans and Tops

Added Mar 14, 2015

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






When I found this nice stretch satin cotton in Copenhagen I decided to make another skinny jeans. I’m very happy with pattern #115 Burda 03/2014. I’ve made a pair once before you can see here if you like.
I wanted to have some tops to wear together with my new jeans so I made one top in mint color and I used pattern #109 Burda 08/2008. I adjust the neck so I didn’t have to add zipper at the back.
I also had a bit fabric left from my dress and found a nice pattern in Ottobre 02/2015. – and for sure these jeans are perfect to wear together with my Sunny sweater :-)

Material Notes

Stretch satin Cotton and viscose jersey.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Cotton, Knits/Jersey

      Hi Iewa, It is from Ottobre 02/2015, Scandinavian magazine. Maybe you can find it on the internet.

    this looks so fresh and sunny !! love the colours, you always choose such lovely fabrics and colours I have actually started on some fake leather pants and when looking for a pattern I almost chose this one until I saw some leather pants in another issue. looking at your jeans now makes me want to try this pattern now. Envy you your sunshine, it is miserable here:-(((

    Beautiflul… I love these pants. I made them last summer and the pattern was perfect. Has summer already arrived in Norway? We are still cold down here in Greece..
