Vera Skirt + Ester & Ebbe Top

My sweat little niece turned 4 years earlier this month and I made this gift for her 💝
It's the Vera Skirt and the Ester & Ebbe Top. They are both free patterns from Threads by Caroline sewing patterns.

All fabrics are from my stash (and that's quite satisfying actually - not to get tempted/ need to buy something new every time). A good thing for the environment and the wallet 🙌. I'm happy they all match so well!
The Vera Skirt is made of Babycord and the Ester Sweater is made of French Terry (the grey fabric)  and Sweatshirt fabric (the dark green ruffles).

I made the sweater with long sleeves  (best for this time of year and a good match to the corduroy skirt)

The skirt has deep pockets at the sides   (the little girl can carry some small precious things in there 😊).

The waistband has both elastic and a drawstring for extra adjustment (and design feature).
The patterns are well drafted and has good descriptions - I can really recommend them 👌.
Thank you Threads …

YOKO Square Roll-Neck Top

It's winter and cold here in Oslo, and the need for warm clothes is essential.
I was very satisfied with the white Jocko fleece sweater (turtle neck version) I made in Desember (pattern from Ready to Sew). It’s a warm and cosy sweater (see the post here).
When I saw the free YOKO pattern from Jalie (that looks kind of like the Jocko),  I had to make one. 

Bright green micro fleece to cheer me up!

The sleeves are quite long, which I really like on a warm sweater 👌.  I made size S. without alternations. The sweater fits well, but I would like it a little bit longer.

The turtle neck makes the sweater very warm and cosy.

Overall a nice sweater that was very quick and easy to sew!

Beautiful sunny 3. February in Oslo, Vigelandsparken/ Frognerparken 😍 

Fielder Crew Neck Top

The Fielder Top,  pattern from Merchant & Mills.

This is the Crew Neck addition.  And I made it with long sleeves.

Fabric is a beautiful soft cotton flannel from Cotton Candy 💙 

It's not easy to see on the picture, but it has a dart at the shoulders that create a nice shape.

Must sew the dress version later 😊✂️ I have seen at lot of beautiful linen versions on IG.

Linda Pant from Style Arc

This is the second pattern + fabric bundle I have bought from Style Arc.  They are so affordable! Not at least considering the shipping all the way to Norway. 

It's the Linda Stretch Pant + Dobby Jacquard Black Bengaline Fabric.

I started sewing these pants last November, but I didn't finish them until now. The size/ fit was waaay to big for me so I had to alter the pattern quite a bit. I used the other pant pattern I have from Style Arc (the Luna pant) as guide. 

The pants turned out OK, but I still don't actually like them very much... (The fit isn't perfect, so to speak)

Looks professional though, with the labels that follow the pattern.
**** First garment finished in 2019 😊✂️
