50's Dress

I love challenges and had to try this pattern! My choose of fabric is stretch crepe from Jersey Fashion and that it was not an easy choice...
I had to hand-stitch around neck with gathering, sleeves, hem and slits.
Anyway I managed at last, and I'm happy with the outcome :)

I’m so excited!!! It’s hard to believe that I was chosen to participate in "Symesterskapet",  the Norwegian Sewing Bee, of more than 300 appliers..   I feel SO Lucky to be a part of this fabulous sewing family! 
I hope you will follow me as far as the show is going on…
I know it will be very exciting, and I will learn a lot, and meet a lot of new sewing friends ♥ It will be challenging, blood, sweat and tears…! No eating, no sleeping…! Oh, what can I expect..
The first episode will take place at NRK Monday the 30th of October at hour 19.45.

Concert Skirt

We should be wearing light denim and white top for our concert this year. Since I didn't find anything nice in my wardrobe I decided to make a new skirt. I love to wear linen garments, and since I had this nice fabric which I bought at  Skaar Tekstil I thought it would be great for this occasion. The pattern is from Burda Easy Fashion 2007.

"Firework" Dress :)

This is a fabric that makes me in a good mood!
I have used the same pattern as for the Striped Summer Dress, but this is a bit shorter. It comfy to wear with the gathering at the sides and back part. I think the dress is nice and a bit special with the cut out back :)

Silk Top with Keyhole

This is a super silk-top! I had some silk fabric left from an earlier project which I thought would be nice for this top. Since I didn't have enough, I have combined it with satin for the back part. It will be nice to wear under a blazer, and both with a skirt or jeans:) The Skirt is from an earlier  project.
