Lovely Aurora

Yet again has Wardrobe by me released a great pattern and I was in on the testing process. The pattern is called The Aurora Blouse and Dress.

By Dagbjørt

The Aurora is designed for light weight woven fabrics and has so many options.  You can make a blouse, a tunic or a dress with long sleeves or short and a regular collar or a bow collar.  Phew thats a lot!

As you can see I obviously made a blouse with long sleeves and the bow collar.  My fabric is a bit to busy to show off the details in the pattern, but I love it!

Since this is rather loose fitting I made a size 36.  I added a little bit maybe 2 – 3 cm to the length of both the bodice and the sleeves.

The fabric I used is this one from Miss Matatabi it is a lovely rayon lawn blend.  It is so soft and nice to the touch and the colors are so vivid.  A little tip to my fellow members of fabric anonymous, through November 19th Miss Matatabi is offering a flat rate international shipping of $15 on orders over $100.  Do you think I went back and ordered some more?  Duh!!

And to enable you even more The Aurora is still on sale for only $19.  You should go grab it fast because it’s one of those classic patterns you can use over and over again and get so many different looks out of.  I’ll be back with my short sleeve version soon.

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
