Crazy Skirt in Bangkok!

I love printed fabric and fall in love with this fabric  when we were on a trip to Singapore some years ago. I just had a small piece left after making a dress earlier,  and it was exactly enough to make a skirt! I'm very Happy to wear the skirt on our trip to Bangkok! ๐Ÿ˜„

The pattern is from an earlier BurdaStyle issue 01/2009. The nice thing about this pattern is that you stitch the pleats on the right side of the fabric, and the exposed zipper is a great detail as well. I have combine the cotton twill with black linen fabric.  
We visit the Jim Thompson House which are a museum in central Bangkok.

Blue Blouse - Refashion

For the time being Blue is one of my favorite colors! ๐Ÿ’™ I bought this chiffon blouse a while ago,  but have not been wearing it so much since the waist was a bit short. Therefore I decided to fresh it up! I have used the same BurdaStyle pattern from issue 10/2019  which I used to make the Chiffon Blouse At first I thought it would be great to have the V-neck at the back,  but realized that it would be better at the front. I like very much the turquoise ribbon around the neck,  and I kept the sleeves with the buttons which are just great!  I have combined the upper part with blue cortelle jersey.

Pleated Blouse

This is a pattern I had to make over again..  It's based on BurdaStyle pattern from issue 05/2016. I like the double pleats in front that makes it unique! The short sleeves have a finish with a folded edge. This lovely satin fabric give me good vibes since I found it on a marked in Singapore๐Ÿคฉ
This is how I made the opening at the back of the neck, and I have used a little button-diamond :)

Cheers! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™ BurdaStyle pattern 05/2016

My husband's sweater ♥

It good when you can use a delicious sweater to give "new life"๐Ÿ˜† The sweater had a lot of bumps, but it's amazing how nice it is on the wrong side!
I have combine my husband sweater with a green jacket that I didn't wear anymore.
The sleeves and the neckline are from another sweater which I like very much! I have used the body of the sweater for an Earlier Project
I think Sara looks fabulous in the dress๐Ÿ’

The sweater is turned up-side down on the wrong side, and sewn together at the waist of the jacket. I have used transparent rubber-band at the waist to make it fit better.

From Dream to Reality ♥

I'm Happy to share my good singing girl-friend's Coat!
She made the Coat for her own wedding ๐Ÿ’•
I met Monica Berge for the first time when I started singing in our choir; Skakkekoret in 2012.
She is an amazing good singer and she sings like an angel๐Ÿ’–
- and it makes me Happy that she is willing to share her special project on my blog!

She tells that she had the idea and imagination how the coat should look like  nearly half a year before she started the project. She had planned all the details in her head; -what fabric to use, -how to draw the pattern, -how to make the hoodie, -how far the tow should be, -how to close the coat: with buttons, belt or button hook?

Actually, she had "been sewing" the whole coat in her head 
and bought fabric, and other stuff she needed before she started with the pattern.. 
When the pattern was finished, and when she started sewing,  she said it was easy since she had thought of different solutions for a long time.

She said, everything …

Checked Skirt !

Even though I made a Checked Skirt as a Christmas present for Sara ๐Ÿ’•  I liked this fabric so much that I had to make another for my self ๐Ÿ˜Š For this skirt, I have used the same pattern as I did for the Wool Skirt, which I like very much! But still it was a challenge to fit the checked fabric at the seams, and especially since I cut the fabric on bias. Anyway, I'm very happy how it turned out ๐Ÿ˜‰  

Skirt in progress..
