Dresses / Skirts


Unknown territory dipping my toe into the pink pool. Read more about my doubts of this dress over at Minerva, link further below. I like trying new things and this is one of them. When trying new things for myself I always try having a backup plan for if it turns out I really don’t like it. In this case, it is my pink-loving sister to wear as a maternity wear. But I’m afraid I’m keeping this for myself, sorry […]

MakeNine2020
Hi, everyone. It’s been a long time since I’ve actually blogged for myself. But it is about time I announced my wishes for the make nine 2020 challenge. I’ve done this challenge for about four years now, never have I completed the challenge. I’m hoping that I at least get to finish half of this list then I’m happy. To make matters harder, I really challenged myself. To break it down: The Sunday sweater from Petit Knit. The lovely Mette […]

First of all, I cut my hair short!!!!! I don’t think it has ever been this short ever since I turned double digits. It has been a bit of an adjustment, even though it’s a long bob cut it’s short. Now I just need to figure out what I can do with it. For this months make I made myself this snuggly knitted dress. I’m on my way of making all the knitted dresses! CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG […]

*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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
