Deer and Doe


Unknown territory dipping my toe into the pink pool. Read more about my doubts of this dress over at Minerva, link further below. I like trying new things and this is one of them. When trying new things for myself I always try having a backup plan for if it turns out I really don’t like it. In this case, it is my pink-loving sister to wear as a maternity wear. But I’m afraid I’m keeping this for myself, sorry […]

My first pink make!*

Even though the weather here in Trondheim hasn’t seen as much sun as it should have yet this summer, I have been busy making these two blouses to go with it when it decided to show. In comparison, these two blouses have nothing in common. One has loosely fitted, collar, dart bodice, and button closure. The other is close fitted, elastic neckline, princess seams, and zipper closure. CLICK HERE TO READ THE BLOG POST Name: Buck (from The Good Dinosaur) […]

Since I’m leaving for London tonight to go at the Dressmakers Ball at Leichester tomorrow, I thought it would be suited for me to finally blog about another extrodinary make for a fancy event I went to last year. The dress is the amazing Magnolia dress from Deer & Doe. I made the maxi dress version with thigh split and low neckline. I love how incredibly sexy it is, but not too much so that it becomes tacky. Every two […]

* 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. For  this occasion, I made shirts to celebrate the anniversary. I lengthen the Bruyere shirt to make it into a dress, shamlessly copying Abigail Spencers dress at the royal wedding. I made the short sleeve version of the Melilot shirt and wore it with tights, yes, seperates! I’m naming both the […]

*Pattern testing I know I’ve told you already that I have been pattern testing Deer & Doe’s latest collection, I have already shown you my first test which was the Nenuphar jacket. Now I’m showing you my second test – the Narcisse trousers. As you know, I don’t wear trousers that often, and to be honest I wasn’t sure this was something I wanted, but I tested them anyway. I was so wrong! SO WRONG! Do to the testing, I […]

Wide legged trousers are mind blowing!

* In collaboration with Minerva Crafts Yes, spring has finally come to Trondheim, Norway! It has been a pain seeing everyone all over the world post beautiful sunny photos and looking out my window it has been grey… But now! Now it seems like Norway is on the move to warmer times. I love it. My recently made dress is perfect for the sunny warmer weather! I made this amazing Reglisse dress from Deer & Doe using this floral cotton […]

Spring has finally arrived!


*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!

Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Do you have any new years resolutions? I have three that I would like to share with you: No new patterns. If I manage to make three patterns I haven’t made before from my stash I can allow myself to buy one new pattern, that’s it. If I start on another pattern without buying a new one, I then have to make up three from my stash before maybe buying one new. Reduce the fabric stash. […]

Happy new years, everyone!
