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


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.

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.

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…


Iago
Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Do you have any new years resolutions? I have three that I would like to share with you: No new patterns. If I manage to make three patterns I haven’t made before from my stash I can allow myself to buy one new pattern, that’s it. If I start on another pattern without buying a new one, I then have to make up three from my stash before maybe buying one new. Reduce the fabric stash. […]

Happy new years, everyone!

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 […]
