Varpu’s Ninni + Delphi pattern hack
May we introduce to you our second intern ever – Varpu! Unfortunately her internship at Named has already ended some time ago, but while she was here she proved to be a hard working and talented little lady, with a fantastic attitude and heaps of creativity! She did some great work with us this spring, including this playsuit she designed, which is a combination of our Delphi and Ninni patterns (so I guess we should call it Denni, right?).
The top part of the Denni playsuit is from Delphi, which is a maxi dress pattern originally released in the spring of 2015. The bottom half is Ninni culottes from our newest Playground collection, only shortened into shorts. It’s always fun to combine two patterns, especially when the patterns are from different collections!
To make the top and bottom halves match, Varpu sewed inverted pleats on the front and back of the pants (the Ninni pattern has quite a lot of ease at the waist, compared to the Delphi top).
Varpu also added a snap button closure to the back strap, as the playsuit would otherwise be a bit too hard to put on. She used a cool rayon blend jersey from Eurokangas, which is ideal for the summery weather, but also works well over a turtleneck and pantyhose! (The beginning of summer is really taking its time here in Helsinki this year.)
If you became as excited about Denni as we did, note that for a limited time you can get a 20 % discount on both the Delphi and Ninni pdf patterns! Use the below code at the check out (The code will expire on June 4th):
