Deer and Doe


King Hubert & King Stefan
* 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!


Principal Mazur
Collaboration with Minerva Crafts* Name: Principal Mazur (from A Goofy Movie) Pattern: Safran pants from Deer & Doe Fabric: Plain stretch denim from Minerva Crafts You can now read about my troublesome journey to make these jeans that ended opp being wearable at the end now at Minerva Crafts Blogger Network page. Now I have more experience with making jeans/trousers, so hopefully, it won’t take a whole year before I attempt to make another one. CLICK HERE TO READ THE […]

Jeans. Jeans. Jeans?



Tiana
Name: Tiana (from the Princess and the Frog) Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer and Doe Fabric: Bottle green cotton drill from Minerva Crafts If you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way. Tiana from the movie has a bunch of incredible motivation quotes that I like. My family didn’t have much growing up with my parents being first-generation immigrants. We did manage for all I know, but I also know that my […]

The amazing Tiana!


Luzerne for Julie
  Pattern: Luzerne coat from Deer & Doe Fabric: Beige garberchino fabric from Minerva Crafts This summer has been a huge summer for my big sister. She turned 30 years, she finished medical school and right away got an internship at the hospital nearest home as she wanted. I’m not surprised because she is incredibly smart and talented! So I needed to give her something special, but what would that be? She has already wished that the whole family take a […]

I couldn’t afford Burberry…


Pattern: Dahlia dress from Colette Patterns & Centaurée dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Floral navy blue and purple viscose & Floral silky satin I don’t think I would have made my wedding happen without these two strong and independent women in my life. Even though we snap at each other and don’t always agree on everything, we always stick up for one another. I can always count on them to be there for me whenever I need it. So […]
