Since I’m leaving for London tonight to go at the Dressmakers Ball at Leichester tomorrow, I thought it would be suited for me to finally blog about another extrodinary make for a fancy event I went to last year. The dress is the amazing Magnolia dress from Deer & Doe. I made the maxi dress version with thigh split and low neckline. I love how incredibly sexy it is, but not too much so that it becomes tacky. Every two […]

The ultimate ballgown


I haven’t blogged about my Christmas dress so here it is in all its glory. Usually my husband and I celebrate Christmas eve seperatly and then the next few days we’ll alternate between the two families. After we got married we started to celebrate Christmas eve together. First time was with my family and so this time it’s with his family. My first Christmas eve with the in-laws was great, amazing food and company. For the occasion I made myself […]

Green velvet for a white Christmas


I love this dress. I’ve been wearing it none stop lately, it’s a jersey dress that is both classy and casual at the same time. The perfect amount of both. I made this in October last year to wear at my niece christening. It has become a stable in my wardrobe and I need to make more if these with sleeves. My first Kielo wrap dress was the sleeveless option I made for the Sew Together for Summer challenge. You […]

Achilles & Captain Phoebus
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 […]

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. I wasn’t able to participate last year when the challenge was shirt dresses, but was determined to take part this time. This years challenge is wrap dress. I do understand why. It’s in all the stores and social media has eaten it up, it is so trending that even I have noticed […]

#SewTogetherForSummer – Wrap dress



King Hubert & King Stefan
* 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
* 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. […]

Another wrap in the mix.


Great Stone Dragon
*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.
