50's Dress

MEMBER MODEL CHALLENGE BY BURDASTYLE 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 :) Vote her if you like  I'm no. 10 :)

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.                                                 Foto: Tore Zakkariasen  I'm wearing my royal blue lace blouse which is sewn of lace I bought from  I have used sport-stretch as lining, and with the bottoms at back it's like 60's style :) The skirt is made of wool fabric from janu

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. Our choir; Skakkekoret  are singing at  Skånevik Fjordhotell

"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 :) BurdaStyle pattern #107 04/2017

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. Burdastyle pattern #120 04/2016
