Zebra print & Jersey denim!

I wanted to surprice this girl for her birthday, and made a top of the leftovers after I made my  Knotted Dress , and I made a denim jersey pants with wide buttom as well. The top are gathered at the shoulder seams, so it's a nice effect. I made a facing around the neck, and stitched an inner seam. Theb I stitched with a double needle around the neck, sleeve hem and hem. The top is finished :) Pattern from Ottobre Kids 04/2009 The patnts has back-pockets with narrow seams as decoration. The pockets are stitched in place. The back parts has lower gathered bell-bottoms than the front parts. The front pockets are gathered and have bias-band as a finish.   Pattern from Ottobre Kids 04/2009

Yellow Sunshine Coat 🌞

This is a nice wool fabric bought at  and I love the sunshine yellow color πŸ’› I decided to make a coat and found a pattern I have saved for a long time. All the pieces are cut and ready to be sewn. I stitched the panels together and top-stitched the seams as well. I made the pockets at the front seams. The collar is stitcket together,  - and the facing as well. The sleeves are stitched togethet and top-stitched. I chose to use cotton fabric as lining, but I have used micro satin as lining for the sleeves. I made shoulder-pads and also "fish-sleeve" for the shoulders. The lining is ready to be stitched in place. I'm very Happy with the coat and how it turned out :) The  two-piece-dress-look  is an earlier project I made for a BurdaStyle Challenge. I have omitted the belt at the side. Burdastyle pattern 

Girl's Jersey Blouse πŸ’Ÿ

I made a jersey blouse for a sweet girl. This is an amazing fabric that makes you in a good mood,  and I think the whole family are present 😍 The shoulders were stitched together and the front part gathered. I made the button holes before stitching the collar in place. I made long stitched around the collar-stand before sewing it with the machine. Then the sleeves are connected. I made ordinary cuffs in the same fabric without buttons. Blouse is finished and I hope the girl will be happy wearing it :) I used a shiny stone for the upper button. Ottobre Kids pattern 04/2021

Color-Blocking Dress! πŸ’•

This is a pattern I have been looking at, but not found the right fabric to make it before now. I have used double woven jersey that I bought in Copenhagen. I started with stitching the half circle and the smaller part inside it. I stitched the zipper in place at the back. I made the double layer on top of the slit and stitched the side seam. Then I made the facing for the neck and arm holes. Dress is finished and I'm very Happy with how it turned out :) At last I had to hand-stitch the hem. BurdaStyle pattern 123 02/2021
