Tiana

The amazing Tiana!

Name: Tiana (from the Princess and the Frog) Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer and Doe Fabric: Bottle green cotton drill from Minerva Crafts If you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way.

We did manage for all I know, but I also know that my […]


I couldn’t afford Burberry…

  Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer & Doe Fabric: Beige garberchino fabric from Minerva Crafts This summer has been a huge summer for my big sister. She turned 30 years, she finished medical school and right away got an internship at the hospital nearest home as she wanted. I’m not surprised because she is incredibly smart and talented! So I needed to give her something special, but what would that be? She has already wished that the whole family take a […]

Luzerne for Julie

Wedding post #3- The family.

Pattern: Dahlia dress from Colette Patterns & Centaurée dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Floral navy blue and purple viscose & Floral silky satin I don’t think I would have made my wedding happen without these two strong and independent women in my life. Even though we snap at each other and don’t always agree on everything, we always stick up for one another. I can always count on them to be there for me whenever I need it. So […]


My first outwear!

Name: Remy (from Ratatouille) Pattern: Pavot jacket (discontinued) from Deer and Doe Fabric: Jacquard brocade fabric from Stoff & Stil As you might know, this pattern is no longer for sale. When Deer and Doe redesigned their patterns and website, they decided to not sell the Pavot jacket anymore. They did promise to give out another jacket pattern soon, and they did. The Luzerne coat is amazing and I’ve made two of them already! Soon to come. I tried to find […]

Kevin

MCBN: Last chance to show those bare legs.

Name: Kevin (from Up) Pattern: B6453 from Butterick by Gertie Fabric: Michael Miller flock fabric from Minerva Crafts I love this dress, but most likely because of the beautiful birds that are printed on the fabric. It really reminded me of the bird Kevin from the movie Up, with its colors and the motive. I’m so glad I made this dress. Now my Russell dress has his friend! CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST I think the colours of […]


Boyscouts honor.

Name: Russell (from Up) Pattern: B6453 from Butterick by Gertie Fabric: Floral cotton from Stoff & Stil A wilderness explorer is a friend to all, be a plant or fish or tiny mole! I made this dress with the pencil skirt as a muslin actually, but it turned out great! I love it when a muslin turns out to be wearable muslins. The reason for making this muslin is because I’m making this dress for my next blog post over […]

Officer Hopps

Officer Hopps ready for duty!

Name: Judy Hopps aka officer Hopps (Zootopia) Pattern: Zephyr dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Grey floral sweatshirt knit from Stoff & Stil Officer Hopps is actually off duty today and is all dressed up! Last year when the pattern came out I made my Tinker Bell dress. So I thought it was about time to add another wonderful knit dress to my wardrobe. I like the simplicity of the pattern. Even though it is a knit dress, Deer and […]


Wedding post #2 – The beginning.

I wanted to make a series of post from my wedding day that I so proudly planned myself. I know that wedding planning makes hubby gag, even though I minimize myself to talking to him about the wedding only if necessary, it was still too much. So after only a month of this, he only replied “Whatever you want, honey. Just give me the date and the bill.” even though he didn’t pay for it by himself. Fair enough, I’ll do […]

Fairy friends.

Name: Vidia (from Tinker Bell) Pattern: Alix dress from By Hand London Fabric: Floral print microfiber from Minerva Crafts I’ve had this floral fabric for a while now, and if you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that I’ve been in a black floral fabric phase for the lighter spring and summer months. Weird, yes! I try to stay clear of polyester fabrics, but I hope you understand why I can’t resist this fabric. It is so beautiful! I also […]

Blue buddies

*Pattern testing Name: Chief Bogo (from Zootopia) and Silvermist (from Tinker Bell) Pattern: Orsola dress from By Hand London Fabric: Viscose fabric from my stash You know how much I love By Hand London, and if they need testers I’m all about to help them. When I saw the Orsola dress I didn’t know if I liked the design that much, or that I had the time. The deadline was quite quick and as you all know I had a […]
