Sommertime!

Hello friends!
I am still here and still sewing so I have some catching up to do here on my blog!
We are enjoying our summer vacation, even though it started with our 4 year old getting the chickenpox and now our youngest one has gotten it as well.  Oh well I guess it’s good to have it over and done with!

 

Our two teenagers and I spent a few days in Paris, we had a great time checking out most of what Paris has to offer.  I never made it to the fabric stores though, but I guess my boys wouldn’t have found that very interesting anyway so I’ll just do that next time around.  Good to have a reason to go back there again and please don’t tell my husband that we will be doing some fabric shopping when I take him on a romantic trip to Paris!
Other than that we have been going to the beach, hiking, going to Kongeparken which is a local amusement park and just enjoying the lovely weather we have been having.  My sister in law and her son came to visit for a few days, and it’s always so nice to have family and friends come visit us.
Ok then, lets get to the sewing part!
First I want to share with you my Pintuck Blouse and Dress a design by Heidi & Finn.  I’m sure I will get a lot of use out of this patterns as it goes all the way up to size 12.  This is the second Heidi & Finn pattern I sew up, the first one was the Colorblock Dress, which I haven’t gotten around to take photos of yet and I’m dying to find the right fabric to make the Chic Cocktail Swing Coat.

 

 

 

I love the simple silhouette of this dress and the pintucks add such a nice little detail.
The fabric is from Robert Kaufman bought at fabric.com some months ago, I couldn’t find it on their site now so I guess it’s sold out.  Thankfully small dresses don’t use a lot of fabric so I still have some left.

 

I sewed up a size 3 for my 3 year old and the fit is spot on, next time though I will make the neck opening just a tiny bit bigger.

 

 

And the best thing is that my little missy loves her dress!
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
