Hello all!

I am super excited to show you all my latest make. It is a beach outfit made up by the Mrs. Depew 50s sun top, and shorts using the Wearing History Sailor Girl pattern. The fabric is just regular cotton fabric from the remnant bin. It is great when things just work out ;)

To read more about the construction, my inspiration and of course; more pictures, you are all invited to visit my blog . Click the picture, or this link!

Thanks for looking, and happy sewing!

Happy springtime everyone!

To celebrate longer and brighter days and summery temps here in Norway, I made this playsuit from the Wearing History Sailor Girl pattern. While I do love the traditional navy and white version, I wanted to make this with a twist.

 

 

The pattern is great, with easy to follow instructions and a nice fit right off the bat. It consist of three different items, shorts, shirt and a skirt. Basically a whole summer wardrobe! With a little creativity you can create many different looks out of this, the sky is the limit. I just cannot recommend this pattern enough, especially if you adore this classic casual look of the 40s!

 

 

Thanks for looking! More pictures and construction details on my blog!

Happy sewing everyone!

Hello everyone!

I am back with my latest make, a blouse made from the 1930s  Smooth Sailing pattern from Wearing History. I had the perfect Spitfire fabric and wanted to make a RAF blouse with a slight touch of ‘uniform’. I altered the giant puffed sleeves  into shoulder pleats, and added tabs to the shoulder. I think it looks a bit more ‘masculine’, but very smart ;)

 

I really can’t recommend this pattern enough, it is a lovely wearable style, and easy to tweak into whatever you like.

This is my second take, and I suspect more in the future. If you’d like to see more pictures and read more about the blouse and fabric, please hop on over to my place! Thanks for looking ;)

A 50s classic

Hello all!

I this is not (mostly) sewing, but to be technical I knitted the fabric and had to sew it into a sweater, so I’m counting it as sewing ;)

Besides, I really want to share my latest make with you all, and of course this lovely part of Norwegian culture!

This is a traditional Norwegian knitted sweater, called “Marius”. It is an immensely popular pattern, and has been for over 60 years. I made it for my Mister, but it sadly turned out too small, so I have a new sweater now!  Woot :)

 

If you want to see and read more about it, you are all welcome over to my place by clicking the photo.
