Selene skirt for autumn.

This is my last post for Minerva Craft for this year. With the move to our new house everything will be packed down and stay that way until we’ll get settled. But packing up my sewing room takes forever since I want to have it up as long as I can.  Ok, back to this months make. I made version 2 and 3 of the Selene skirt and loving the two pocket details on them! The fabric of the dogtooth […]

#SewTogetherForSummer – Wrap dress

Since it’s the end of August, I thought it was about time to show you my dress I made at the beginning of summer for the #SewTogetherForSummer challenge.

It’s in all the stores and social media has eaten it up, it is so trending that even I have noticed […]


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. For  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. […]

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 […]
