My pink sweater dress

Another post this week!

I’ve figured out that if I don’t blog about my sewing stuff right away I dont get it done, because suddenly I have something new and exciting to share.  Like now I have two very cool things in the works for the kids coming soon.

So here is the pink sweater dress you saw peaking out from underneath my lovely Cocoon Coat.

I used the Daisy Dropped Shoulder blouse.  I think I added about 10 inches to the length and some pockets to break it up a little bit.

The neckline can be finished with either a facing or ribbing.  I went with facing this time,  it takes a little longer to sew but it gives a bit fancier outcome.  I used yellow thread for all my topstitching, it’s not that easy to see but I think it adds a nice touch.  I have a plan to retire my jeans and make about a million more sweater dresses and live in them, at least until spring time.  I don’t know if I’ll use this pattern for them all, maybe I’ll try one with more fitted sleeves.  We’ll see.

Fabric is from Stoff og Stil but I can’t find it on their site now, guess it’s sold out.

No time to waste, keep calm and sew on!

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
