Sophie’s World


Happy birthday
Happy birthday to me! Today is my 29th birthday and I thought it would be a good time for me to share a bit off myself with you. The topic is about body image, and I’ve been struggling with this lately. I was quite skinny with a high metabolism during high school – ten years ago. So it was a big adjustment to suddenly be putting on weight. and for a few years, I had a steady weight gain. I […]

Bodysuit and bodylove


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.


Trello fabrics
I’ve been trying different apps to organize my pattern stash and fabric stash together. I came across this article from Colette pattern about apps to organize your sewing. I tried using the Memento app, but didn’t like the fact that you can’t use it on the computer as well as your phone. Then I came over Camille from Deer and Doe suggestion of using Trello for her fabric stash. I have to be honest, I didn’t find the app or website […]

Sophie’s World #4 – Organising my stash



Hello sewing friends. I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas celebrations, eaten a lot of good food and laughed among family and friends. I certainly have, and I wished it didn’t have to end. But we have to come back to reality, work and everyday life awaits! Since the new year is approaching lightning fast nowadays I thought I’d do a little recap of what has happened to me the year that has passed and what I wish for […]

So the next one to get married, watch out, it’s a hell of a love storm coming your way! Before that time too of course. This was during Easter vacation, and I had a jammed packed schedule. I had to plan every day to make room for everything I needed […]

I  recently just got over the hump and made it to a 1000 followers on my Instagram account (YAY!), so I’m celebrating buy having a giveaway! First a little history about the my relationship with By Hand London. Back in March 2014 when I decided to start sewing my first move was to purchase the Elisalex dress pattern. While waiting for the pattern to arrive I read everything on their sewalong for the pattern twice. I was so inspired and […]

Sophie’s World #1


Hi there again! I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged anything lately. The reason for sewing absence is that I am not finished with some of the things I want to blog about. Somethings are gift’s that haven’t been given yet, and others are WIPs I can’t seem to finish. I have a lot of plans, but plans don’t seem to fall through when it’s sunny and warm outside. I get super lazy. So far on my list of sewing goals […]

What’s going on Part 1.


I started to sew my own wardrobe in March 2014. I only sewed a couple of things now and then, so when #mmmay15 started last year I was SO proud to participate. I was so proud to be a part of a community that had so much love  and was so including. If you were a beginner or at the advance level it didn’t matter. The love of making was endless. So with the few pieces of clothing I had […]

#mmmay16, thank you for this year.
