My Wardrobe


Name: Cornelius Robinson dress / Kronk dress / Pascal dress Pattern: Kim Dress from By Hand London. Fabric: Cottons The title of this blog post seems like I’m going to talk about a Korean family. But no. It’s the lovely Kim dress from By Hand London. I made a Christmas dress from this pattern. Although it looked like it fitted me well, it didn’t. So I’ve tried to make it fit better with these three dresses. The first one I made during Easter break […]

The Kims


Genie
Name: Genie dress Pattern: Emery dress from Christine Haynes. Fabric: Cotton twill This pattern is so long overdo! I have drooled over this pattern for a very long time, and during Easter break I entered Christine Haynes giveaway competition, and won! I wanted the printed pattern because I think those are the pretty ones, and it arrived to Norway two weeks ago. So nothing else to do then hop on to it. The color of this dress reminded me of […]

My very first Emery dress.


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



School haven’t started full time yet, and I don’t work as much now at the shopping center as before with the Christmas rush so I have a lot more free time then usual. So what have I been doing? Sewing. And it’s a thrill. Four days, three dresses, two Coco and one Francoise.   Pattern: Coco Dress and Francoise Dress from Tilly and the Buttons. After I have sewn the muslin for both the Francoise and the Coco from some […]

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

After the summer I changed the needles in my serger and  started stitching the nettie pieces together. It came out beautiful! I really liked the fabric pattern, its simple but elegant. That’s my go in life, simple but elegant. I have stayed away from this pattern from Closet Case Files because I don’t really like the way it’s clinging to my belly, subconscious yes. But I really like it, and it’s so diverse and can be used on the daily bases […]

The nettie is done!
