This is the first Christmas curtain I ever had, but our flowery ordinary curtis simply ruins the Christmas spirit completely. These are made in a heavy Linen Rayon fabric with some structure to it. They have a heavy fall and a beautiful deep blue colour. It is a start panel with three 2″ pleats towards the bottom,
These are the flowery order nary curtains.
Our tiny tree
We even have snow, as you can see trough the window.
My latest wardrobe addition is this linen shirt, I don’t usually wear shirts but I thought this was cute and gave it a try. I’m really pleased that I did. The fabric is one that I got this spring from the local fabric store, I got the last of it and there was only 70 cm left. I couldn’t pass it up because it was so beautiful. Ever since have I been trying to find a suitable project that would make it justice but it’s not easy to find a pattern that only requires 70 cm or less even if the fabric was extra wide.
This is Peplum from ottobre 5/2013, I used a 100% shirt linen with different colored wept and weft. The neck lining is made in a quilting cotton. The only modification I made was to take it in a bit over the waist.
Now to the skirt, this was made 2 or 3 years ago but is still unblogged (I’m a really bad blogger sometimes). It is made in a heavy 100% wool probably intended for winter suit coats, it might be merino, it feels like it but I can’t remember. The skirt is a 6 panel self drafted since until about a year ago I had never followed a pattern but drafted all of my sewing projects. This is not to brag I simply didn’t know how to modify a pattern to make it fit and though it was easier to simply fit as I went or as this case simply calculate a 6 panels from a circle, to fit my high hip and maximize the width of the skirt using the fabric I had.
This lithe sweater is knitted in Debbie Bliss baby cash merino, I used 164 gram 411 meters for the 2 year size, The Pattern is Livingston by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne.
I had some trouble editing these pictures, how do you make lovely farm saturated yellow look like watch it is?
I think this one above is my favorite, but it is a little dusty.
Banksia by Megan Nielsen I made it in a wonderful cottonfron my local fabric store it’s the same fabric as I used for my Robe Réglisse and I will surly use it agin.
I love this pattern on other people, I had some major fitting issues and it was not one of my most patient days so after 3 muslins I gave up and just made it. There is something weird with the sleeves, the cap is not shaped as sleeves usually are and the neck also had some thing going on, the collar didn’t fit properly to the neckline. I still love the style it is just the problem that I can’t wear it. I still like this kind of collar and will in the future use an other more fitted pattern and just add a similar collar and placket.

This is my second Lady Skater this one is made in the same fabric as the first one , 93% viscose and 7% elastane, but black instead of rust. The first one have already received allot of complements and the pattern is perfect, I will be making one in cotton as well as soon as I get my hand on some.
Modifications: I lengthened the skit with 10 cm (4″).
Yardage: I used about 220 cm of a 140cm width, you could fit it in about 180cm if you add midd-back seem in the skirt.
I used a twin needle to finnish the neck and the skirt hem.
And some new pictures on the first lady skater.
An update on my Bohus cardigan, This is my commuting knitting, so the progress is steady but slow. It is the blue one, but I haven’t really followed the pattern, truth be told I haven’t even reed it except for the colour work.
I have for a very long time wanted to make my own folkdräkt but deciding which one to make and how to do it has held me bak but now I have decided to just do it. My plan is to make it my own, to take favorite pieces form different ones.
