Oh so Heavenly!

A few weeks ago I bought two patterns from Figgy’s new Heavenly collection, The Stellar Tunic and The Ethereal Dress.  I have already sewn up The Stellar Tunic but haven’t gotten around to do the Ethereal dress just yet, but I will soon because I was planning to use that one for Anita’s Easter dress.

The Stellar Tunic turned out great, although I got a tiny bit nervous when cutting all those pieces for the sleeves and as that wasn’t enough of small pieces I decided to do a little color blocking on the body as well.  Mostly because obviously it had to be pink and I find that often dresses look like nightgowns when they are a solid pink color.

Sorry about the bad photos that follow!  I promise I’ll start taking better photos!

And to crazy hair photos 🙂

It really was fun to sew and I totally see myself making many more of these.  I think it is a great comfortable play dress and not to mention stylish!  And the best part my little stubborn princess likes it a lot!  A total WIN 🙂
As I followed the Heavenly Tour all over blogland I participated in some of the contests for a chance to win a pattern and what do know I – WON – the Celestial maxi skirt on CailaMade! I never win anything so I was over the moon I was so happy 🙂
I don’t have photos of the skirt just yet, but Anita loves that one as well! 🙂
Love Dagbjört

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
