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 […]

Stitch needs Lilo.


Matching pocket square and bow tie
Name: Elsa (Frozen) Pattern: Martini dress from Capital Chic patterns Bow Tie pattern from Tie-a-Tie Fabric: Second hand table cloth from Fretex So pleased about this table cloth dress.   Yes, table cloth! I was so happy  that the table cloth had enough for my dress and for a pocket square and bow tie for hubby as well! I thought we looked very good together yesterday if I might say so myself. *Selfbragging* Elsa dress is my second Norwegian Constitution Day dress. […]

Happy birthday, Norway!


Name: Lola Bunny (Looney Tunes) Pattern: Anna dress from By Hand London Fabric: Black crepe georgette with glitter from Stoff og Stil. First of all this dress turned out perfectly! I’m sorry for bragging, but I’m so happy with how this turned out! The dress is named after Lola because even though she is sexy as hell, you don’t want to mess with her by calling her doll. I made this dress to attend at the 25th annual of a student organisation I had […]

Tweety
  Name: Tweety Pattern: Moneta dress from Colette Patterns Fabric: Viscose jersey from the scrap pile This is my second make for the #mmmay, and it’s sort of the second week so I think I’m going the distance! This is my second Moneta make, my first one was my Minnie Mouse dress I made during Christmas influences. I admit, I haven’t worn the Minnie Mouse dress since new years. It’s super comfy, but I think it is to much Christmas […]

Tinker Bell
Name: Tinker Bell Pattern: Zephyr dress from Deer and Doe Fabric: Scuba from Stoff og Stil that is out of stock. This month, so far, starts out great! We ate a huge breakfast, the sun came out for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s flag day(!), and we got to take some pictures. So while hubby is brewing his beer I’m blogging about my hobby! I made this dress yesterday. YES, yesterday! It took me 2,5 hours […]

Maleficent
Name: Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) Pattern: Fumeterre skirt from Deer and Doe Fabric: Light Grey twill This skirt here I made back in November, took the photos then as well, but for some reason I didn’t blog about it.

I’m short so maxi skirt does tend to […]

Donald Duck
    Name: Donald Duck Pattern: V2960 from Vintage Vogue Fabric: Cotton blue and white squares I love the 50s fashion and going to make a TON of these after I’m done making everything else I have on my list… Why I love the 50s fashion?
