Shirts instead of skirts

Pattern: McCall’s M2447 Fabric: Marin blue shirting from Goldhawk Road in London This men’s shirt is my pride and joy! I made this shirt for my boyfriend, which is too tall for the picture frame (Haha), as a Christmas present. It’s the first time I have  giving him something handmade for Christmas. He was so pleased and with some itsy bitsy small changes on the next shirt it’ll fit him better as well. This is my first go at the […]

Make-It-Yourself March

So this month I’ve joined Wendy and Emma on Make-It-Yourself March this year with the hashtag #miymarch16 on Instagram. There were different themes every day and each day you get to post a photo related to that theme.

If you follow me on Instagram […]

Them pockets.

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 […]


My sewing goals this year!

It’s pretty ambitious, but I will try to keep it up as much as possible. This is the selfish sewing part. Bear with me. Every month there’s a new pattern on the block that has just been released out into the wild, and about every time I want to buy it. That leads to me hoarding patterns. Hoarding and hoarding without having the time or money to actually go through with the project. So this post is actually for me […]
