The bird has landed!*

*The pattern was gifted to me to test before release, fabric was also gifted in collaboration with the testing. I have been so lucky to be one of By Hand London’s pattern testers, and whenever they need a pattern to be tested I always make the time to do so. They are my first ever pattern company and they have a special place in my heart. This time is no exceptions. I wasn’t sure I would like the empire waist […]


African wax print dress

Remember that Vicki Wright, the queen of African Wax Printed dresses, from @sewvee celebrated her birthday back in March? Well, this was my contribution to her celebration and challenge! I hadn’t prioritized the make at the time because of my ankle and the dressmakers ball, so the last two days before the challenge ended I sewed my ass off just in time to enter. This is the first dress I made using wax prints and I can see the fascination […]

The Kiss

Gustav Klimt – The Kiss*

* Collaboration with Minerva Crafts This is my best friend in the whole wide world. My best friend, Trine, loves the painter Gustav Klimt, especially the ones with all the gold. She even went to Vienna just so that she could be in the presence of his paintings in the museums. That’s how much she loves his work. When I saw that Minerva Craft had some cross stitch kits out of his paintings I knew I had her next present […]


The Dressmakers Ball 2019

This year was my first time making it to the Dressmakers Ball. Even though it was with a cast. The anticipation of meeting all the people you’ve been following on social media, but not actually talked to, and the fact that I didn’t actually know anyone made the experience both exciting and frightening both at the same time. For the occasion, I made the Ailakki jumpsuit with some hacks to it. The jumpsuit itself is like the pattern with the […]

Another try at the Ginger jeans

If you’ve followed me for a while I’ve made Ginger jeans before and the previous ones have been fine, but there is still fitting issues that made me not wear them regularly. I don’t necissarily know what the fitting issue might be so I’ve been putting it off for years now. This is my recent try on the jeans I’m and happier with this one, but there is still something to be done with the fit. So I’m hoping I’ll […]


Bodysuit and bodylove

Happy birthday to me! Today is my 29th birthday and I thought it would be a good time for me to share a bit off myself with you. The topic is about body image, and I’ve been struggling with this lately. I was quite skinny with a high metabolism during high school – ten years ago. So it was a big adjustment to suddenly be putting on weight. and for a few years, I had a steady weight gain. I […]

The ultimate ballgown

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 […]


Green velvet for a white Christmas

I haven’t blogged about my Christmas dress so here it is in all its glory. Usually my husband and I celebrate Christmas eve seperatly and then the next few days we’ll alternate between the two families. After we got married we started to celebrate Christmas eve together. First time was with my family and so this time it’s with his family. My first Christmas eve with the in-laws was great, amazing food and company. For the occasion I made myself […]
