Knotted Top

Image
I have been waiting for the right moment to try this pattern,  and now I found a nice fabric for the project :) It looks like waffle fabric, and since it's shiny I chose  to combine it with both sides.  The pants is from an earlier contest  

Sara's Jacket

Image
This is a perfect jacket for Sara,  and she looks fabulous in every color :) It's made of a great wool fabric with satin lining. The pattern is from Burda 09/2008.

Waistcoat and Dress

Image
 I fell in Love with this wool fabric  and it's very special with all these threads.  The pattern is from a Norwegian sewing magazine.   It's lined with black satin and I made loops for  the buttons since they are rather big.  This dress is made of knitted wool which are very warm and soft to wear. Since the fabric is knitted I omitted the zipper at the back. I found the pattern in a Sabina magazine.  I think it's a great color for Cecilie :)

Sweater with Buttons :)

   Burdastyle pattern #114 10/2016 A sweater is easy to make and smart to wear :) I like to combine different fabric and since I had a bit left from my earlier project, I chose to use this together with quilted jersey for the sleeves and black jersey for the back part. I tried the loose Peter Pan collar I made for the  Shift Dress , and it can be a nice transformation :)   

"Puzzle" Dress

Image
    This is another technique I had to try by Shingo Sato. It was a lot of work sewing all these pieces together, but it was worth the effort! As you can see there are no side- or shoulder seams for the top. I started with sewing the upper part of BurdaStyle pattern #107 05/2016 and draw the pattern lines on the top as you can see. I had to sew all the corners very carefully to get the best result. I choose to use the skirt as the pattern shows. I like this pattern a lot and have made a blue/black Dress , and also a  geometrically Dress  earlier.    

Fox T-Shirt

Where did the Fox go...... Printed fabric makes you in a good mood :) and Ronny thought this fabric was nice for a T-shirt. I didn't have any patterns, so I copied it of an old one.
