* 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.

The husband has wanted a new dressing gown and pyjamas set for a while now. He was prepared to pay a great deal to get a comfortable and good looking one, but I told him no, I can make one for him. We browsed through men’s pyjama patterns and this Vogue pattern was the one he was most pleased with. It has a wide collar, pockets and interesting piping details for the dressing gown, and the pyjamas were what pyjamas for a man […]

Loungewear for my man



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.

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 […]
