Getting comfy in bodycon?


Joy
Name: Joy (from Inside Out) Pattern: Anna dress from By Hand London Fabric: Lemon colour plain cotton poplin from Minerva Crafts. Yes, I made another one. Another plain yellow dress. You might remember other yellow dresses; Nala, Jane Porter, Lumiere and Tweety. This one was a bit of a purpose. On Instagram, I revealed to you which colours I’m using for my bridesmaid’s dresses. Pink, green, blue and purple. To get all the pastel colours, I’m the yellow one – […]

The Joy of a new yellow dress.


Zazu
*Patterntesting Name: Zazu (from The Lion King) Pattern: Alix Dress from By Hand London Fabric: Viscose crepe from Vietnam “Chimps are going ape, giraffes remain above it all. Elephants remember, though just what I can’t recall. Crocodiles are snapping up fresh offers from the banks. Showed interest in my nest egg but I quickly said “No thanks!” We haven’t paid the hornbills and the vultures have a hunch. Not everyone invited will be coming back for lunch” – Zazu Ever […]

Checking in with the morning report.



Name: Lola Bunny (Looney Tunes) Pattern: Anna dress from By Hand London Fabric: Black crepe georgette with glitter from Stoff og Stil. First of all this dress turned out perfectly! I’m sorry for bragging, but I’m so happy with how this turned out! The dress is named after Lola because even though she is sexy as hell, you don’t want to mess with her by calling her doll. I made this dress to attend at the 25th annual of a student organisation I had […]

It’s sparkles ya’ll!

Anna
Name: Anna Pattern: Holly jumpsuit bodice pair with Kim modified draped wrap skirt from By hand London Fabric: A gift from my cousin from Vietnam.  This christmas dress I made competing in a facebook competition. The theme was a Christmas garment that the due date for entering was on December 20th (bf’s birthday as well), and my last exam was on the 18th.

Very belated 2015 Christmas dress



Dory
Name: Dory jumpsuit Pattern: Holly Jumpsuit from By Hand London Fabric: Chambrey So this is one of my latest projects. The Holly Jumpsuite. I usually only make dresses and skirt, because I really don’t, Don’t, DON’T like pants. Pants has never fitted me really well, So I was very skeptical when the gals from By Hand London came out with this pattern, but I really love the bodice on the version 1 of the pattern, so why not. And it’s By […]

Behold the Holly!


Kuszco
Name: Kuszco dress Pattern: Georgia Dress from By Hand London. Fabric: stretch cotton You can guess what I’m naming the dress after. The one and only, Kuszco dress. It’s fierce, full of attitude and I feel I’m a badass in this dress, just like Kuszco. Boom Baby!                   I think without a doubt this is the most wild dress I own. I sewed another Georgia dress earlier that was the little black […]

Fierce little red dress.


Name: Cornelius Robinson dress / Kronk dress / Pascal dress Pattern: Kim Dress from By Hand London. Fabric: Cottons The title of this blog post seems like I’m going to talk about a Korean family. But no. It’s the lovely Kim dress from By Hand London. I made a Christmas dress from this pattern. Although it looked like it fitted me well, it didn’t. So I’ve tried to make it fit better with these three dresses. The first one I made during Easter break […]

The Kims



The days I was home in lovely Sandefjord I got to sew again. Ten whole weeks with laboratory experiments and school work without sewing, and above all that getting a new sewing machine as well! So when I finally got time I made this.. Pattern: By Hand London Charlotte skirt, Sewaholic Cambie dress and By Hand London Elisalex dress. This is my new baby. It is quiet, and a joy to work with. It’s the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960! It’s […]

This Christmas was the first Christmas I wore something I made myself, and I’m so glad! This years dress was the lovley Kim Dress from By Hand London. With the perfect wine red colored brocade fabric this is the best dress I’ve ever made I think. I love it, even though it was a challenged sitting in the dress without showing your panties. But that was a sacrifice I was willing to make. Gladly!   Pattern: Kim Dress from By […]

Merry Christmas.

Of course I’m talking about the gorgeous Georgia dress from By Hand London. This pattern I’ve had for a really long time. I made one dress out of it already but since I made is as a muslin I didn’t lengthen the bodice, but grained the size to be a bit bigger around the hips. It fits, but the grained size started at my waist so that was not flattering AT ALL. So I’m glad I made a new little […]

The perfect little black dress.

I don’t know how it happened, but somehow I manage to have a lot of dark purple fabrics for this winter.. Is it really a winter color? I think its quite pretty, but to think of it I have never own anything purple and the last two dresses I’ve made is purple? Weird. Pattern: By Hand London, Sabrina Dress version 2. I actually started on this dress at the beginning of October (whoops!) and it has been sitting in the […]

Dark purple for winter?


Megara
So I’ve planned this selfish dress for a bit now, and here is the result: The reason behind the making of an amazing dress was that I needed a new dress that fitted me perfectly (relative to the other dresses I have from buying) that was more than an everyday wear. I needed it to be snug at the bodice and a big skirt so I could eat a lot without it showing. The dress was going to be used […]

Selfish and unselfish sewing


Ms. Bianca
Pattern: Anna Dress bodice and Charlotte Skirt from By Hand London (love those gals!) Hi, first of all sorry. For my few followers I have been busy a lot. Especially with school. It’s been a real change to change campuses, you wouldn’t believe how much of a change! The hours are at least doubled and the that is just the lectures, the amount of work you have to put in is quadrupled.. But enough japing, I’ve been doing a lot of fun things […]
