Hi people! Longe time no see, and it’s my bad… I’ve been so incredibly busy with the move and getting my sewing room up and running again. 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! Since it’s still winter here in Norway and I wear cardigans with my dresses I figured I’ll try making the Bellatrix blazer from Papercut Patterns. I’ve seen so many […]

* 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.

I made the short sleeve version of the Melilot shirt and wore it with tights, yes, seperates! I’m naming both the […]

*Pattern testing Yes, yes, yes! I’m so happy to inform you that I’ve become one of Deer & Doe’s pattern testers! I can’t tell you enough how incredibly honoured I was when Camille contacted me. I am such a huge fan of D&D, you can see all that I’ve made from their company here! This jacket is unlined with loose sleeves, gathered back and notched collar. It is the perfect piece to throw over whatever you’re wearing in this transitioning weather […]

The secret is out!

The husband has wanted a new dressing gown and pyjamas set for a while now. He was prepared to pay a great deal to get a comfortable and good looking one, but I told him no, I can make one for him. We browsed through men’s pyjama patterns and this Vogue pattern was the one he was most pleased with. It has a wide collar, pockets and interesting piping details for the dressing gown, and the pyjamas were what pyjamas for a man […]
