Cropped Blazer

A short Blazer is nice to wear, both together with pants and skirts, and it's very versatile and great for any occasion.                                     When I saw the picture in the Burda Magazine I knew I had to make it in red. I had cotton pique available in my stash, so that's my choice!
I like the tiny pleats at the waist, it's like a little decoration 👈
For the lining have used poly stretch and it's nice to wear.

African print Dress

I love African wax print! 💗
One of the task we had in the Norwegian Sewing Bee was to make a dress of such nice fabric!
I got this fabric from my lovely friend @trudeludie and it was a closing sale after the show finished. Lucky me!😊

I found the pattern in the Patrones magazine
At first I thought it would be to much with the flounces on the sleeves, but I think it made the dress a bit special.
If I don't like it, it's easy to cut it off..

The dress has pockets in the sides and a knotted belt at the waist.

Leggings and Top

My brother in law sent me a photo from a marked when he was in Nice,
and said: "You should have been here!"
I said; "wow, I would love that one with the flowers"
"No problem", he said. 
Lucky me got this lovely fabric from my nice brother in law 😊
It was perfect to make a pair of leggings and a top for a new exercise outfit!

Long Waistcoat

If you have a curtain with eyelets you don't need,
then it's perfect for this project! 😇
I found this pattern in the Spanish magazine, Patrones,
and the waistcoat are made of a linen curtain,
then I didn't have to bother with the eyelets..
There are slits in both side seams, so it's fluffy
and nice to wear over dress, shirt or what you prefer.

Two-piece-look Dress

I wanted to make a project for February #burdachallenge 2018. Since I didn't get hold on my February issue, I decided to make this Two-piece-look Dress from August last year instead. 

It's nice to combine colors and fabric, and I love printed fabric.
This "lady-like" fabric was perfect for the top, 
and to be honest I didn't have enough of the black jersey, 
therefore I thought the red jersey was a great match 😉
