Have you started on your autumn wardrobe yet? Or maybe you already have a wardrobe staple you’re comfortable with? I’m still working on finding mine and I think my newest make really fills a hole I’ve been missing. I don’t wear trousers much, but when I do I tend to go for black ones. The reason for that is my hair color. Since I’ve never colored my hair, it is as black as ever. So since my hair is black, […]

Ultimate wardrobe staple trousers


Even though the weather here in Trondheim hasn’t seen as much sun as it should have yet this summer, I have been busy making these two blouses to go with it when it decided to show. In comparison, these two blouses have nothing in common. One has loosely fitted, collar, dart bodice, and button closure. The other is close fitted, elastic neckline, princess seams, and zipper closure. CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST Name: Buck (from The Good Dinosaur) […]

If you’ve followed me for a while I’ve made Ginger jeans before and the previous ones have been fine, but there is still fitting issues that made me not wear them regularly. I don’t necissarily know what the fitting issue might be so I’ve been putting it off for years now. This is my recent try on the jeans I’m and happier with this one, but there is still something to be done with the fit. So I’m hoping I’ll […]

Another try at the Ginger jeans



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 […]

But now I’m back, so I’ll be posting my latest makes sporadically. First up, is me finally getting back to blogging for Minerva Crafts!

Achilles & Captain Phoebus
This is my last post for Minerva Craft for this year. With the move to our new house everything will be packed down and stay that way until we’ll get settled. But packing up my sewing room takes forever since I want to have it up as long as I can.  Ok, back to this months make. I made version 2 and 3 of the Selene skirt and loving the two pocket details on them! The fabric of the dogtooth […]

* 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 […]
