My trousers journey so far.

Name: Vanellope Von Schweetz (from Wreck-It-Ralph) Pattern: Ginger jeans from Closet Case Files Fabric: Brushed stretch twill from Stoff & Stil [out of stock] Let me start with giving you the timeline . Heather Lou’s pattern debut was on October 23rd 2014, yes 2014! I purchased the pattern on November 9th fairly confident that I would make myself a pair of trousers in the near future. That winter and the following year I was only wearing dresses and some skirts […]

Alice

Sister sisters!

Name: Alice (Alice in Wonderland) Pattern: Macaron dress from Colette Patterns Fabric: Ikea curtains and pink party sateen for my sister and light blue cotton curtains for me. Background story of the two Macaron dresses: I made this dress for me as a muslin last summer, why? Because I needed to test it out before I made my Randall Boggs dress as a maid of honor dress for my sisters wedding last year. So after half-assed the Alice dress and […]


Muslin gift!

Pattern: Minuro jacket from Sewaholic Fabric: Light twill and cotton (out of stock) I started on this jacket for about a year ago. When I found out that the hips were a bit to snug for me I put in on my WIP pile. So when I had one of my best friends here in Trondheim over it was just laying around. So I asked her to try it on and it fits her! So i figured I could make […]

Edna Mode

Fashion with Edna Mode

Name: Edna Mode Pattern: Winslow culottes from Helen’s Closet Fabric: Black cotton lining and chiffon from Stoff & Stil For the last two years my group of friends has gathered together for a weekend in Oslo in July. It so happens to have been the second week in July both times, so we made a tradition doing it again this year. Lately it’s been harder when people has started to have a full-time job and can’t get away whenever we can. […]


I never knew I could love culottes that much!

Name: Baloo (from The Jungle Book) Pattern: Winslow Culottes from Helen’s Closet Fabric: Duvet cover from Fretex (second hand store) When I discovered Helen’s closet she was at the last stage of announcing her first cloths sewing pattern ever. I’ve seen only beautiful versions of these culottes. I have never made culottes myself at the time and thought it was a genius idea. I mean, pants that is masked as skirts? Mind blown. I purchased the pattern when it came […]

What’s going on Part 1.

Hi there again! I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged anything lately. The reason for sewing absence is that I am not finished with some of the things I want to blog about. Somethings are gift’s that haven’t been given yet, and others are WIPs I can’t seem to finish. I have a lot of plans, but plans don’t seem to fall through when it’s sunny and warm outside. I get super lazy. So far on my list of sewing goals […]


Upcoming-soon-to-be-mother-in-law.

  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 […]


Rex

Fierce, gentle and totally insecure.

  Name: Rex (from Toy Story) Pattern: Emery dress from Christine Haynes Patterns Fabric: Dark turquoise with flowers from Stoff og Stil Rex looks totally fierce with his badass Tyrannosaurus rex looks, but when you hear him speak and get to know him, he is so gentle, adorable and cute. Not to mention his insecurity, which makes him even more adorable. I’m naming this dress after him. I actually won the Emery dress pattern from Christine Haynes herself! She had […]


Mom rocking Deer and Doe!

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.

Another Jedediah for Hubby

Good old Jedediah.

Pattern: Jedediah Pants from Thread Theory Fabric: Marine blue twill from Goldhawk Road I made this pants for hubby last summer and decided to blog about it now. I don’t know why I haven’t blogged about it yet, but here he is. This is not my first Jedediah pants, and sure will not be the last one either. The pattern fits hubby like a glove. He thinks it’s comfortable to wear and the width and the length is perfect. I took these pictures […]


#mmmay16, thank you for this year.

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 […]


Lilo

Stitch needs Lilo.

Name: Lilo Pattern: Mesa dress from Seamwork Mag Fabric: Double knit Last night I came to think that I hadn’t sewed something new for this weeks #mmmay16 yet. I didn’t have any plans last night either so I sat down to sew, but what? What can I make that I already have the fabric and pattern for? Something simple that didn’t need much fitting. What will I make, what will I make… So I looked up on my sewing goals for […]
