The Stellan Tee

The Stellan Tee is free pattern from French Navy
It's a basic T-shirt with a boxy, slightly cropped fit, proportionally long sleeves that can be rolled up, and it has a subtly curved hemline.

I made this in size S, and I think it's a great relaxed T-shirt.
Next time I'm thinking of making a size smaller to make a T-shirt that's even better for layering. 

Fabric is organic cotton jersey (Kärnor) from

Pictures are taken in Vigelandsparken (Vigeland Park) here in Oslo today,  where the Magnolia is blooming beautifully!!

Jersey Dress #2/ Jerseykjole med sving #2

This is my second jersey dress with pattern from Ida Victoria, Sting & Ting (see the first one here).

I bought the the additional patterns for this dress, and the fabrics, when I was at here place for the sewing course. This pattern includes several sleeves options, neck options and this color blocking option for the top pieces.

I made this one with 3/4 long sleeves and the same neckline as the first one. And, off course, with pockets too!

I changed the full circle skirt to a half circle skirt on this one. I think it's works really well for me.

 Here's pictures from out Easter holidays in the mountains a few days ago 🌞 The weather was PERFECT and we had a wonderful time skiing in Venabygdsfjellet (in Rondane).

Now we are home in Oslo again, and spring has come! It's blooming beautiful everywhere 🌸🌼🌺🌞

Astoria Sweater (and my new needle ring 💕)

I have had the Astoria pattern for quite a while, and I finally took time to sew it. The pattern is from Seamwork.

 The pale pink quilted jersey is from Stofflykke.

The Astoria was easy to sew, and I think it's a really cute sweater.

 I think the Astoria sweater goes perfect with my Hollyburn Skirt (pattern from Sewaholic Patterns). Read the post about the skirt here. Or just look at the pictures... (the text is in Norwegian).

Definitely gonna make more Astorias!

And I just have to show off my new ring! It's the open needle (pinky) ring from Neta Hilel Design in silver.

It was such a happy mail that arrived the other day 😍.

I can really recommend to buy items from Netas Etsy shop.  The ring is beautifully made, the correspondence with her was very quick and friendly,  and the ring arrived shortly after I ordered it.
I think the needle ring is sooo cute, and that it looks really nice together with my Cacharel ring  (that I also love very much and wear every day).

I also …
