Working on the summer wardrobe.


We are sooooo ready for summer here in Norway!
So it was quite disappointing that the nice weather from a couple of weeks ago didn’t last.
But at least I’m working on the summer wardrobe for the kids.
I made Anita the Glass Onion Top from Shwin Designs.
I love their blog Shwin and Shwin.  They have tons of tutorials and
free patterns as well.
I made Anita a size 4 and it fits perfectly.  
The pattern has 3 sleeve options, cap, mid and long.
This time I did the mid sleeves.  I say this time because I am for sure using
this pattern again.  It didn’t take me long to whip up this darling cute top,
and it was such a satisfying sew!
There are to options for the back, regular or pleated.
As you see I did the pleated version and I LOVE IT!
The neck scoops down in the back so it’s easy to put on and take off
without any buttons or a zipper.  
This is the perfect top for an active princess.
I think I got both fabrics for the top and the leggings at my
local fabric store, Kreaktiv.
The leggings she is wearing are go to leggings I made her late last summer.
I don’t remember the size I made these in.
Those are also easy and fast to make.
There is not much more to say so I’ll just let you enjoy some fun photos
of my happy little goofball.
Thanks for sticking around!

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
