17. mai-outfit 2019

Wow, I’m surprised that it’s been five months since Norwegian Constitution Day. The sun isn’t shining nowadays, but time for some reminiscing. This was my outfit this year. Since I don’t have a traditional Norwegian bunad, I make myself a fancy outfit each year. And this year, a jumpsuit is made instead of a dress. I made a straight US size 10, but for my next make, I think a size 8 bodice would be more fitting. There was a […]


Ready for autumn.*

I finally got around of making myself this pattern. Last time I made it back in 2016, I made too small and gave it away to a friend. This time it fits and it’s water resistent as well! How cool is that?! CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST Name: Flik from A Bug’s Life Pattern: Minoru jacket from Sewaholic Size: US 8 Fabric: Water resistent ripstop and slinky satin both from Minerva.

Ultimate wardrobe staple trousers

Have you started on your autumn wardrobe yet? Or maybe you already have a wardrobe staple you’re comfortable with? I’m still working on finding mine and I think my newest make really fills a hole I’ve been missing. I don’t wear trousers much, but when I do I tend to go for black ones. The reason for that is my hair color. Since I’ve never colored my hair, it is as black as ever. So since my hair is black, […]

Summer blouses*

Even though the weather here in Trondheim hasn’t seen as much sun as it should have yet this summer, I have been busy making these two blouses to go with it when it decided to show. In comparison, these two blouses have nothing in common. One has loosely fitted, collar, dart bodice, and button closure. The other is close fitted, elastic neckline, princess seams, and zipper closure. CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST Name: Buck (from The Good Dinosaur) […]


AGF Gable top.*

The bird has landed!*

*The pattern was gifted to me to test before release, fabric was also gifted in collaboration with the testing. I have been so lucky to be one of By Hand London’s pattern testers, and whenever they need a pattern to be tested I always make the time to do so. They are my first ever pattern company and they have a special place in my heart. This time is no exceptions. I wasn’t sure I would like the empire waist […]


African wax print dress

Remember that Vicki Wright, the queen of African Wax Printed dresses, from @sewvee celebrated her birthday back in March? Well, this was my contribution to her celebration and challenge! I hadn’t prioritized the make at the time because of my ankle and the dressmakers ball, so the last two days before the challenge ended I sewed my ass off just in time to enter. This is the first dress I made using wax prints and I can see the fascination […]

The Kiss

Gustav Klimt – The Kiss*

* Collaboration with Minerva Crafts This is my best friend in the whole wide world. My best friend, Trine, loves the painter Gustav Klimt, especially the ones with all the gold. She even went to Vienna just so that she could be in the presence of his paintings in the museums. That’s how much she loves his work. When I saw that Minerva Craft had some cross stitch kits out of his paintings I knew I had her next present […]


The Dressmakers Ball 2019

This year was my first time making it to the Dressmakers Ball. Even though it was with a cast. The anticipation of meeting all the people you’ve been following on social media, but not actually talked to, and the fact that I didn’t actually know anyone made the experience both exciting and frightening both at the same time. For the occasion, I made the Ailakki jumpsuit with some hacks to it. The jumpsuit itself is like the pattern with the […]
