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 […]

Say Aloha to Maui!


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 […]

Me-Made-May 2018.


Geppetto & Pinocchio
*Collaboration with Minerva Crafts I love me two new dresses! They are both from Tilly and the Buttons newest book Stretch, and I love the additional title “Make yourself comfortable”. I’m so pleased about how these two dresses turned out. I made the Freya dress with a pleated ruffles for the front bodice. And the Joni dress I lengthen the bodice by 3 cm and made a flared sleeve option. If you want to see more pictures and read more […]

* In collaboration with Minerva Crafts Yes, spring has finally come to Trondheim, Norway! It has been a pain seeing everyone all over the world post beautiful sunny photos and looking out my window it has been grey… But now! Now it seems like Norway is on the move to warmer times. I love it. My recently made dress is perfect for the sunny warmer weather! I made this amazing Reglisse dress from Deer & Doe using this floral cotton […]

Finally a fitted denim skirt.



Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* I’ve been lounging around in this two piece wonder ever since I made it. It’s been in the wash late Sunday evening and put on every Friday afternoon. The kimono has some amazing featured details I wouldn’t have thought of, but it makes it a truly unique and wonderful patten. That’s what I’ve noticed with Helen’s patterns, they might seem like simple makes, but they’re hidden details that make up the garment beautifully. I’ve also hacked […]

Lazy Sunday mornings…

Collaboration with Minerva Crafts*   Hi everybody, I’ve been so lucky to have tested the new fabric line from Lady McElroy over on the Minerva Crafts blog. There was so much to choose from, I didn’t know where to start. But I’m glad I ended up with this Flora songbird cotton poplin. It’s amazingly beautiful and I used one of my tried and true patterns to make it. If you want to read it the link is below CLICK HERE […]

Flit
I was just casually checking Instagram during work (shh!) and saw Sew Over It released this pattern. I immediately purchased it right then and there.¬† I fell in love with it, but then again I love everything that Lisa Comforts wear. What I keep forgetting is that if it looks good on her, it doesn’t necessarily look good on me. I know my body shape, love it, and now know that the baggy bodice type dresses are really not my […]
