By Hand London


The days I was home in lovely Sandefjord I got to sew again. Ten whole weeks with laboratory experiments and school work without sewing, and above all that getting a new sewing machine as well! So when I finally got time I made this.. Pattern: By Hand London Charlotte skirt, Sewaholic Cambie dress and By Hand London Elisalex dress. This is my new baby. It is quiet, and a joy to work with. It’s the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960! It’s […]

Easter sewing

This Christmas was the first Christmas I wore something I made myself, and I’m so glad! This years dress was the lovley Kim Dress from By Hand London. With the perfect wine red colored brocade fabric this is the best dress I’ve ever made I think. I love it, even though it was a challenged sitting in the dress without showing your panties. But that was a sacrifice I was willing to make. Gladly!   Pattern: Kim Dress from By […]

Merry Christmas.

Of course I’m talking about the gorgeous Georgia dress from By Hand London. This pattern I’ve had for a really long time. I made one dress out of it already but since I made is as a muslin I didn’t lengthen the bodice, but grained the size to be a bit bigger around the hips. It fits, but the grained size started at my waist so that was not flattering AT ALL. So I’m glad I made a new little […]

The perfect little black dress.

I don’t know how it happened, but somehow I manage to have a lot of dark purple fabrics for this winter.. Is it really a winter color? I think its quite pretty, but to think of it I have never own anything purple and the last two dresses I’ve made is purple? Weird. Pattern: By Hand London, Sabrina Dress version 2. I actually started on this dress at the beginning of October (whoops!) and it has been sitting in the […]

Dark purple for winter?

So I’ve planned this selfish dress for a bit now, and here is the result: The reason behind the making of an amazing dress was that I needed a new dress that fitted me perfectly (relative to the other dresses I have from buying) that was more than an everyday wear. I needed it to be snug at the bodice and a big skirt so I could eat a lot without it showing. The dress was going to be used […]

Selfish and unselfish sewing


Ms. Bianca
Pattern: Anna Dress bodice and Charlotte Skirt from By Hand London (love those gals!) Hi, first of all sorry. For my few followers I have been busy a lot. Especially with school. It’s been a real change to change campuses, you wouldn’t believe how much of a change! The hours are at least doubled and the that is just the lectures, the amount of work you have to put in is quadrupled.. But enough japing, I’ve been doing a lot of fun things […]

The First of Many Annalotte Dress



Hi there peeps! So I never got around to show you the results of the Flora dress I made, here it is I wasn’t a 100 percent sure about the combination, and didn’t feel like it was something I was going to wear more   than once anyway. So I gave it away to a friend that appreciated it as a late birthday gift. She is taller so the skirt was the right length for here as well. But I […]

The Flora Results


Today I’m writing from my  tablet because I am simply too lazy to unplug my computer from the TV in my room. But I just wanted you to know that I started on another Flora Dress from By Hand London! Thrilling! The only thing is that it’s a pain in the butt to work with the sewing machines here, and mom doesn’t have all the equipmemt that I need either.  I mean she doesn’t even have fabrics shears! (Insert jaw […]

Lazy crazy

The last few days I wanted to make a shirt done before I went home for the summer. And I did it! I finished the shirt on Tuesday night before we went home yesterday (Wednesday). But that was not without complications.. The Negroni Shirt from Colettie Patterns, and piece of my Flora Dress from By Hand London. Monday I had assembled the Negroni printed pattern, marked the size I wanted, traced the pattern to tracing paper and cut out all […]

Sewing machine disaster!
