The Stretch sewing book from Tilly and the Buttons makes an other appearance! Back in June, I made Geppetto and Pinocchio from the book using two of their dress patterns.  This time i’ve made myself a top and a pinafore, the new additons are also named from characters from the same movie, so say hello to Cleo and Jiminy Cricket!

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 […]

The Kings of Shirts



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.

The girl with the dragon… Dress!


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 […]

Gingham dresses!

*Pattern testing I know I’ve told you already that I have been pattern testing Deer & Doe’s latest collection, I have already shown you my first test which was the Nenuphar jacket. Now I’m showing you my second test – the Narcisse trousers. As you know, I don’t wear trousers that often, and to be honest I wasn’t sure this was something I wanted, but I tested them anyway. I was so wrong! SO WRONG! Do to the testing, I […]

Wide legged trousers are mind blowing!
