Wool Top

I love to wear wool garments this time of year :)
This is based on BurdaStyle pattern #115 08/2015 
and I have made another top of this pattern earlier.
The black wool is a transparent, but it's very soft 
and I think it's nice to combine with.

Duo fabric Sweater

 This is a great pattern for a top or a sweater.
It's also nice to combine two colors or two different fabric.
 I have used wool ribbed fabric together with quilted blend jersey.
The pattern is from BurdaStyle 04/2009.

Knot Blouse

I was curious about this pattern, 
so I had to try it..
It's special with the opening at the shoulder seams,
and I like the pleats in front.
I have used a little button at the back of the neck for the opening.
I thought it would be nice with a double fabric for the knot,
but since I have used medium jersey it is a bit heavy, 
but it's also possible to tie it on the back part :)

Sara's Deer Dress :)

With the golden trees and snow white deers Sara looks wonderful in her new dress. It has small pleats at the shoulders but I omitted the pleats at the waist of the skirt.

I won the fabric in a sewing competition 
which you can see here if you like :)

Marfy Blouse

I'm singing in the snow ♪♫
For the time being I like sewing blouses and try out new patterns. This is a pattern from Marfy catalogue 2014/2015. I found the the fabric at It's a soft viscose  and great for a blouse.
 I like the detail with the little tie in front, and it makes it a bit special :)

Shirt with Tie

 Bright colors makes me happy :)
This is a pattern from an older BurdaStyle magazine 07/2005.

I made small button holes for the tie and it could be nice to leave it open with a top underneath as well. At this time of year I prefer a long sleeved shirt, but I'm sure it can be nice with a short sleeved top as well :) I have used medium weight jersey for this.

Polo Neck Dress

Since I had this soft cotton jersey in my stash 
I thought it would be nice for a cozy dress like this :)

The neck was a bit high, so I prefer to bend it in,
or to leave it open at the back. 

 Instead of sewing the zipper all up to the top of the neck 
I have used buttons as shown on the picture.

Grey is easy to cheer-up with a nice color, 
and red is always a great choice,
or a colorful scarf :)
