Mum's sweater became a skirt...

I'm always curious to see how my dress will look like  after cutting apart several garments to make it..! πŸ˜… My mum's old sweater is the eye-catching for this dress, and it makes me Happy to wear it because it remains me of her πŸ’— The red top is from the wool dress and the sleeves from the white sweater. For the waist I have used a part of the wool top. I made pockets for the skirt and sewed an exposed zipper in front.  The collar is made of a piece I have left from a cardigan. My husband always makes me laugh when he is taking the pictures! πŸ˜„

Spiral Sash Dress

My lovely model and good friend, Inger Hanne πŸ’•   This is another Japanese technic I've learned from Shingo Sato. I start with the upper part and draw the lines I want to have. Then I lengthen the the edges of the curves to make a sash. I also drew a line for the back to make it more special.  The skirt is based on a pattern from BurdaStyle. I made a flounce on the skirt lining to make it softer. The skirt is based on  Burdastyle pattern #121 04/2016

BurdaStyle Challenge October!

  This is one of my favorite Colors which I love! πŸ’— I'm always curious to try new patterns, and this was no exception... The pleats in front, both for the top and the skirt makes it unique and special. I like this style and it's perfect for any occasion.  It's an easy pattern, but I think it is important to use a steady jersey. I have used medium weight courtelle jersey, and I'm Happy with the outcome 😊                                  Burdastyle pattern #113 10/2018

Easy Top :)

Pinted fabric is one of my favorites! πŸ’’ This is an easy top made from BurdaStyle pattern #112 04/2009 I had a bit left of the bronze fabric which I though was nice together with the printed jersey. I made a split as a finish at the end of the sleeves. I have used this pattern several times, and if you like you can see my  Jersey/Lace top or my Winter wonderland top The pattern is perfect to combine different fabric πŸ˜‰ BurdaStyle pattern #112 04/2009

Good Morning!

 Sara is the lucky owner of the kimono / bathrobe I made  when I was participating in the Norwegian Sewing bee last year. We were going to make a luxury dressing gown / bathrobe within 3 hours 30 min! I chose to use viscose fabric combined with satin. The bathrobe should have collar, side-pockets and  the belt were suppose to have a creative detail. I made a wrap-belt decorated with ribbons and pearls. I'm really happy with the outcome which I managed within the time-limit! I think the bathrobe suits Sara very well πŸ’—  Based on BurdaStyle pattern #128 11/2009

Autumn Dress

The Autumn Leaves drift by my Window ♪♫ This is a beautiful song we are singing in our Choir. I think these colors are Great to appreciate the Autumn 🍁   This is how I cut the sweaters: The wool sweater is turned back forward  because I love the little detail with the pearl buttons. I have used the neckline for the red wool dress from an  earlier post . The waistband and the red cuffs are also from the same project. The grey jacket is turned back forward and I have sewn between the buttons  so it doesn't get open when walking... The lilac waistband from the sweater is sewn as a finish for the skirt. Voila! Dress is finished πŸ’œ My husband and I had a Funny photo-session by the sea πŸ˜‚
