Seventies Style Blouse

This is one of the most exclusive fabric I have been sewing with.
It's a silk satin and it's really delicious to wear!
When I saw this fabric it was screaming at me, 
and I fell in love with it at the first site 💕
 I had to find the right pattern, and I knew I have been waiting 
for the right time to try this pattern. 


 This is definitely slow fashion because I had to hand-stitch a lot.
I'm enjoying sewing in the sun on our holiday. 
To make it look nice I had to hand-stitch both around the sleeves, neck and hem. 






This is how the front part should have look like if I had follow the pattern instruction,
but I since I have used a flower printed fabric it wasn't nice to have a seam in the middle.
I was so Happy that I had enough fabric to cut a new front part 😊

Pleated Plaid Trousers

I was so curious about this pattern from BurdaStyle 12/2017.
I bought the fabric at stoffogstil.no and my plan was to use it as lining for a jacket, 
but then I realized it would be nice for these pants as well.
When sewing with plaid fabric it's all about cutting the pieces very carefully
so the squares matches exactly. 
 

The Waistcoat is an earlier project, and so is the Wool Top 

Gardermoen, Oslo Airport.

Peplum Jacket

Here is the story how I made this lovely jacket.

The pattern I have chosen is from Burda Easy 02/2017

 I found this beautiful wool brocade fabric in a local shop.
It very nice with the woven silver treads,
so I decided it would be great for a short jacket.
This is how it's going to look like.
 I had to treat the parts very nicely since it's fraying a lot.

 
I have used silver piping for the neck-line.
The sleeves are ready to be sewn on the body. 
 The lining is cut and sewn together.

Jacket is finished!

Jersey / Lace Top

I love to use a combination of different fabric 💕 
Jersey with print is great together with lace.
I think it's sweet and chic at the same time.
This is a great pattern and it's easy to make different versions :)
