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!



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:  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!
