Darted Blouse

On a short visit to Kristiansand, a city south of Norway.

I'm wearing my new shirt which I was lucky to squeeze out of the scrap I had left after I made the Sabina Dress  
I had to match the print  of the lovely satin fabric for the dress.

This pattern has a great fit, and I like the pleats in front which makes it special :)
The sleeves has a great fit too.

From Russia with Love ♥

I think it's not so hard for you to understand why I fell in Love 
with this gorgeous silk chiffon in St Peterburg!
The pattern I have used is one of the 60's Vintage BurdaStyle Pattern Collection. 
I got the pattern collection when I was the lucky winner with my Holiday Dress  
when I participate in the Sloper Member Model Challenge :)
 It's an easy pattern, but I think it's nice. 
I want all the colors and flowers in the fabric to glow! 
The pics are from our garden with yellow roses :)

 

 I have shorten the sleeves and used a rolled hem. 
For the lining I have used micro satin.

Blue-Flower Top


I'm together with my lovely sister in law on our way to Vilnius to celebrate our mother in law's  93-years birthday!    
I'm wearing my second top made from      BurdaStyle 02/2018. I have combined a   lovely viscose fabric together with jersey at the back. It's a nice detail with the gathering at the neck.                          
The first top I made was with a vintage jersey which you can see here if you like.

Top with Bow back



This is my kind of fabric and I fancy it very much!

The pattern is from BurdaStyle 02/2018.

The little detail with the bow at the back makes it a bit special.


We are on Arlanda airport on the way home from
our "Fabric-Safari" in St Peterburg

Lace Dress with a twist of Lemon :)

I knew this pattern from before when I made my dress with applique
I wanted to try it once more with this beautiful cotton lace fabric 
I bought in a local shop which I was the lucky one to open in January. 
If you like you can see the video here
Red carpet at Radisson Blu Astorija in Old Town Vilnius 😄

I thought it would be nice with yellow lining.
I also cut a yellow strip and sew a rolled hem on both sides so it doesn't fringe.
On top of it I sew a piece of the lace fabric, gather the it on both sides 
and hand stitched around the neck.   
I have just cut around the flowers at the hem, 
and I think it's a nice finish.



We are celebrating my mother in law's 93 years birthday 🎉🎈
