Ribbed Wool Dress!

Merry Christmas every one  ♪♫ A wool dress is fabulous to wear when it's getting colder, and I love these long cuffs to cover my wrists! They will keep me warm in the office! This is an easy dress to make, but it's so comfy to wear. I have used ribbed wool jersey, so the fabric is a bit heavy. With a colorful scarf or belt it will be freshed up, or simply wear it plain. It's the sleeves that makes the dress special. BurdaStyle pattern #111 10/2021

Wool Blouse with Tie!

I'm so Happy with the wool fabric from It was perfect for making tops and blouses! This is a pattern from BurdaStyle 01/21 that I used once before to make  Brown Blouse I like the special detail with the tie at the neck. I have change the sleeves with the same sleeves that I used to make the  Wool Top with Flowers and it was a great choise for this fabric. I'm sure that I will gonna wear it a lot this winter!❄ The knot are loose and you just pull it over the tie. The sleeves are gathered very closely above the cuffs and at the shourlders.

Reversible Wool Jacket!

I found this fabulous wool-jacquard at As you can see, it's very nice on both sides, so therefore I chose to make a reversible jacket. This is also an easy pattern from BurdaStyle, but I have omitted the pleats at the shoulders. I have used bindings around the edges and for the sleeve hem. The jacket looks rather big, but the size are very normal. I have used flat-seams for the shoulders and the side seams. I hade to make a long binding. I'm sewing the sleeve binding on one side, and turn it and then topstitching as a finish.   This is the "blue-side" with red flowers. - and this is the "red-side" with blue flowers. To make a flat seam you have to use 1,5cm for the seams.  You cut one of the seam to 0,5cm and the other seam you turn inside and then topstich. BurdaStyle #111 06/2021

Wool Jumper πŸ’•

  An easy jumper is great to have, and specially made of wool for winter time!  I love the to cover my wrists so I'm not feeling cold at work, and I'm soon back again after my holiday.. The roll neck and the puff sleeves are a great wow effect.  The sleeves are very wide because of the gathering at the shoulders,  and it's perfect together with the narrow cuffs.

Hawaii Dress 🌴

I found this lovely cotton fabric in a local store  in my home town Haugesund. I thought it was perfect to make a holiday dress! The dress has rubberband both at the front-neck, at the sleeve hem and at the waistline. I like the skirt when it is a bit wide at the hem.  I'm very Happy with the dress πŸ˜„
