Susie panties and matching tank tops

I've made cute panties and tank top set for my niece 😊.

Panties pattern is Susie panties from SUCO by Susana

The tank top pattern is a free pattern from Life Sew Savory

Fabric is scraps from earlier sewing projects. White fold over elastics (FOE) is used on both panties and tank tops.
The fairy one is size 3 years . The flower one is size 4 years.
Both patterns has great instructions and were fun to sew from.  I can recommend them both 👌.

The little girl that received them was so happy that she wore the tank top on top of her sweater the very first day 😄 💕


Jeg deltok i Rutermani konkurransen på i juni,  og var så heldig å bli trukket ut som en av 15 andre som vant hvert sitt stoff.

Dette nydelig grønne rutete stoffet i Egyptisk bomull var mitt førsteønske,  og gleden var derfor stor når jeg fikk vite at det var akkurat dette jeg vant.
Utfordringen vi fikk var å sy noe annet enn skjorte av stoffene.
Jeg fant fort ut at dette stoffet måtte bli til et midiskjørt med knappelukking foran. Mønsteret jeg tok utgangspunkt i var Clemence Skirt fra Tilly and the Buttons bok «Love at first stitch»

Endringene jeg gjorde var å droppe usynlig glidelås bak og lage knappestolper foran istedenfor. Jeg la også til lommer i sidesømmene, og sydde på beltestropper på linningen.

Jeg ble veldig fornøyd med skjørtet og gleder meg stort til neste sommer så jeg får brukt det igjen!
Og så sydde jeg på knappene med symaskinen for aller første gang! Det har jeg aldri turt (eller satt meg…

Goode Sweater

First of all; I didn't make this one!
My sister Camilla made it for me as a birthday gift.

Pattern is the Goode Sweater by Julie Hoover for Purl Soho.
The yarn she used was Mayflower Lino in a silver-gray color. A lovely blend of 48% viscose, 42% linen and 10% cotton. Bought at

I really love the sweater and I am so thankful for this gift! I think my dear sister did such a great job on this one.

Pictures are taken at our cabin in Fåvang.


From one of our many trips to Venabygdsfjellet. We love the beautiful nature up here in the mountains!

Marilyn Dress (slightly hacked)

This is my Marilyn Dress. 

Pattern from Style Arc.
Fabric is a soft and light woven viscose from Stoff & Stil. Delightful to wear in the summer heat we are having here in Norway this summer.

I changed the original split sleeves to self drafted cap sleeves. And added a tie belt for more flattering shape.

Photo Shoot at the sandbanks in Gudbrandsdalslågen,  nearby Fåvang where our cabin is.

We call it "Playa del Lågen" :-)

Rosa Shirt Dress #2

This is my second Rosa Shirt Dress. Pattern from Tilly and the Buttons.

I wanted a light summer dress so I omitted the sleeves and the collar.

Fabric is light grey seersucker from Stoff & Stil.

Beautiful Bamboo buttons from ArrowMountain. (The Shirt Button) 

Love this yoke! 

I am really pleased with the result, and I will wear this dress a lot!

We are having the most beautiful and warm weather these days,  so we took at trip out to Hovedøya here in the inner Oslo fjord, and I wore my new dress.
The location for the photo shoot are in the ruins of Hovedøya Kloster (Hovedøya Monastery). 

Flint Shorts

These are my Flint Shorts. Pattern from Megan Nielsen patterns.

This is the Flint pants and shorts pattern: "Wide leg cropped pants or shorts with unique crossover closure at the side seam. Pattern sits on the natural waist and features hidden closure at the left pocket, release tucks at the front, darts at the back, slash pockets, two waistband options and two lengths."
Fabric is Chambray from Stoff & Stil. This is version #4 -  shorts with the tie closure.

Clever closure with one hidden button on the inside.

I think this tie is the cutest!

I lengthened the legs a few inches, as I am not comfortable with short shorts. It is a great pattern to follow and all the pieces came together as they should. 
The Flint Shorts was fast and fun to sew!

One more garment finished for my Sewing/wardrobe challenge 2018 :-) (now I have made 8 so far)

Snerten Damegenser

This is the "Snerten Damegenser" (means something like "Snazzy Ladies Sweater")

Fabric is viscose jersey. Bought at Stoff & Stil here in Oslo.

Nice detail in the back, makes a flattering silhuette.

Pattern is from Astrid Lindgren Design, for

"thanks, I MADE IT!" Cute pin from Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics.

We have the most beautiful weather here in Oslo these days 😀
