The Kings of Shirts

* Collaboration with Minerva Crafts This is my one year anniversary on Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. It has been an amazing experience being a part of this creative community. ForĀ  this occasion, I made shirts to celebrate the anniversary. I lengthen the Bruyere shirt to make it into a dress, shamlessly copying Abigail Spencers dress at the royal wedding. I made the short sleeve version of the Melilot shirt and wore it with tights, yes, seperates! I’m naming both the […]

Eep dress

Another wrap in the mix.

* Collaboration with Minerva Crafts Finally, I get to show you this amazing wrap dress I made for my birthday in April! I was so lucky to do a product review with John Kaldors new spring/summer fabric collection. It took me a long to settle for one fabric. In the end, I choose the floral print peachskin in black. What to make? Well, the wrap dress has been all the rave lately so the choice of pattern was slightly easier. […]


The girl with the dragon… Dress!

*Collaboration with Minerva Crafts I love this dragon and flower print on this fabric from Ralph Lauren fashion house! The colours are so vibrant and bold! I wore this dress to celebrate me and my husbands one year wedding anniversary. And took some pictures while we were out. The picture is in front of a floating chapel and out looking the fjord.

Maui

Say Aloha to Maui!

Ever since I started sewing, I’ve been trying to make something pretty and new for Norwegian Constitution Day May 17th every year. This year is no different. I was pretty sure I wanted to make the Lamour Dress from Charm Patterns. Charm Patterns is the indie company Gretchen Hirsch started for her own, which I was thrilled about! I’ve loved her work when she collaborated with Butterick (I think she still does?), and her sewing books are phenomenal. Russel and […]


Me-Made-May 2018.

This is the third year I’ve participated in #mmmay and I’m so happy I did. I got to learn a lot about my wardrobe that I wanted to share with you. But first, let me show you what I’ve been wearing in the duration of may 2018. I started May by trying to make a theme each week, and think I’ve somewhat managed it. I wanted initially to make it about the fabric. Trying to match prints theme or colour […]


Geppetto & Pinocchio

Gingham dresses!

*Collaboration with Minerva Crafts I love me two new dresses! They are both from Tilly and the Buttons newest book Stretch, and I love the additional title “Make yourself comfortable”. I’m so pleased about how these two dresses turned out. I made the Freya dress with a pleated ruffles for the front bodice. And the Joni dress I lengthen the bodice by 3 cm and made a flared sleeve option. If you want to see more pictures and read more […]


Wide legged trousers are mind blowing!

*Pattern testing I know I’ve told you already that I have been pattern testing Deer & Doe’s latest collection, I have already shown you my first test which was the Nenuphar jacket. Now I’m showing you my second test – the Narcisse trousers. As you know, I don’t wear trousers that often, and to be honest I wasn’t sure this was something I wanted, but I tested them anyway. I was so wrong! SO WRONG! Do to the testing, I […]

Spring has finally arrived!

It has been a pain seeing everyone all over the world post beautiful sunny photos and looking out my window it has been grey… But now! Now it seems like Norway is on the move to warmer times. I love it. My recently made dress is perfect for the sunny warmer weather! I made this amazing Reglisse dress from Deer & Doe using this floral cotton […]
