The Incredibles children
Name: Violet, Dash and JackJack Pattern: Molly dress/top from Sew Over It – My Wardrobe Capsule: City Break Fabric: Various knits from my stash Have you flipped through the five patterns that Sew Over It made in their capsule yet? No? Well now is the time. Even though I made a promise to myself that I wouldn’t buy any more patterns before I’d made everything I intend to make. That promise broke quickly after this pattern capsule came out. I also […]

An addition to the Incredibles family.


  Pattern: Akita top / York blouse from Seamwork Fabric: Light floral twill (I couldn’t find it on their page) / blue print woven cotton from Stoff og stil Wow, what a mouthful! Well, what else am I going to call her? Boyfriends mother? Too simple and boring, so upcoming-soon-to-be-mother-in-law it is! We’ve been together for 8,5 years, I think it’s safe to call her that. This is the first time I’ve made her something at all. It’s her birthday […]

Upcoming-soon-to-be-mother-in-law.


Pattern: Bruyere shirt  and Ondee sweater from Deer and Doe Fabric: White poplin and sand color ponte di roma My mother is the best person I know. I know everybody says that about their mother, but I’ve always been a moms girl.  This year I made the shirt and sweater for her birthday, which was on Saturday June 4th. Me and my sister who live far away from home hadn’t been home since Christmas! I had a few days off […]

Mom rocking Deer and Doe!

Name:  Harris / Hubert / Hamish (Princess Meridas brothers, Brave) Pattern: Oslo cardigan from Seamwork Fabric: Various of knits from the scrap pile in Stoff og Stil So you know I’m the pocket queen. Cardigans without pockets are simply a no-go. You put on a cardigan over you top, pants and dress, so if you have pockets on one of those garments it is going to be covered by the cardigan. When you then need to reach for something you have […]

Them pockets.


Berlioz
Name: Berlioz Pattern: Bruyere shirt from Deer and Doe Fabric: Antique blue/marine/white poplin from Stoff og Stil Since I’ve made the Bruyere shirt for my mother, I’ve been holding of on making my own until recently. So this is my muslin Berlioz (the grey kitten in AristoCats) shirt. I need to make the bust a little bigger. Because when we took the picture above here, my top button popped open. Whoopsi. Here is a picture up close so you can actually see the […]

Shirtmaking for real.



Trippel Paxsons
Pattern: Paxson Sweater from Seamwork. Fabric: Various of knits I have really been good so far this year. One of my new years resewlution was to do more unselfish sewing for the family. So, so far this year I’ve sewed a sweater and a shirt for mom and dad for the lunar new year, an exact same skirt as mine tulip skirt for my sister, and how’s left? You got it, my three B’s. So who are they? You might […]

The three B’s.


Pattern: Paxson jumper from Seamwork Mag, and Bruyere shirt from Deer and Doe. Fabric: Marine blue knit and dark purple bi-stretch. The Vietnamese new year this year was on February 8th. So I for once wanted to be a good daughter and give my parents something nice for the holiday so I started sewing this. It was my first time sewing both of these patterns and luckily it fitted them both! First of is my dad’s Paxon jumper. It was […]

Happy Lunar Year 2016!

Flowy Flower!



Flounder
Name: Flounder jumper Pattern: Astiora from Seamwork Mag Fabric: Thrift shop jumper I spotted this fantastic jumper at my local thrift shop, and just had to have it. Isn’t it brightly beautiful? This is a mens jumper size XL. Luckily bf didn’t want it, (it was to big for him anyway) so I cut it up and stitch it together again. This time I used the pattern of the Astoria from Seamwork magazine. Here’s some of the process: First I […]

Thrift shop refashion!


Name: Olaf top / Stitch dress / Cruella Devil dress Pattern: Stoff og Stil Topp 22048 Fabric: Various of stretch fabrics   It’s freaking cold outside! But I wanted the next pictures to be in the first winter snow here in Trondheim, Norway so I’m putting up a fight. This pattern is the topp 22048 from Stoff og Stil here in Norway, although I think it’s a Danish company. I wanted a dress that has this kind of neckline, I […]

One pattern, three ways.


Name: Ray jumper / Pongo skirt / Bolt jumper / Jasmine skirt Pattern: Astoria from Seamwork Mag. Fabric: Stretch thick jersey I sewed my first Astoria the Buzz Lightyear jumper earlier this month, and I loved it! I love, love, love it so much that I went out the next day and bought some more stretch fabric that I could use for the same jumper. So here is the result. First of is my Ray jumper naming it after firefly Ray from The […]

Just one, and another one. OK, last one.



Buzz Lightyear
  Name: Buzz Lightyear jumper Pattern: Astoria sweater from Seamwork Mag. Fabric: Bf’s old jumper I’m calling this jumper the Buzz Lightyear Sweater. It’s simple, but beautiful. takes under an hour to make and fits great (mainly because it’s knit/jersey fabric). This is the first Astoria I made. Boyfriend clean out his closet and threw away clothes he never used. In the mix of all this I found a sweater I thought was nice, and I haven’t made the Astoria […]
