Tops


I started to sew my own wardrobe in March 2014. I only sewed a couple of things now and then, so when #mmmay15 started last year I was SO proud to participate. I was so proud to be a part of a community that had so much love  and was so including. If you were a beginner or at the advance level it didn’t matter. The love of making was endless. So with the few pieces of clothing I had […]

#mmmay16, thank you for this year.


Name: Jock crop top with Trusty skirt (Lady & the Tramp) / Olaf top with Snow white skirt Pattern: Top 22048 from Stoff og Stil /  Chardon skirt from Deer and Doe Fabric: Black pont di roma / Light floral woven poplin / Light navy sateen with blossoms The spring has shown its gracious presence these few couple of days here in Trondheim (FINALLY!!!). Oh how I love the feeling of the sun on my skin again. With spring knocking on […]

Get skirty, fast!


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!

This is my first mission as a pattern tester ever and I’m oh so glad that it’s with the company I started to sew with for almost 2 years now! So introducing you all, the fantastic Sarah shirt! I’m so pleased with this shirt its’s crazy! Look how floating it is! I made the shirt in a super soft viscose rayon (which in my opinion is a […]

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.
