My pretty Lana!

I love that Olga behind coffee and thread, one of my favourite kids clothes pattern designer is venturing into designing for women as well.  I’m always a little bit nervous trying patterns for myself by a new to me designer, but I have tested for Olga before so I know that her designes are great.

Meet the new Lana Top and Dress!  It’s a simple jersey top with dropped shoulders and the ruffled sleeves gives it that little extra omph.  There are many more Lana tops on my sewing list at the moment.

I can’t remember where I bought this fabric, its light weight jersey and it feels so good on!  I graded from size 6 to 10 at the hips and the fit is perfect.  I had to make some dresses as well, so here is the first one.

For this one I used fabric from a So Sew English Fabrics bundle I bought last fall.  I wasn’t sure I would like the distressed fabric on me, but after wearing the dress for a while I am loving it!

The pattern includes a pattern piece for the belt.

This one is made out of light weight sweater knit I believe I bought from Imagine Gnats.  I was a bit worried it would be see through, but it worked out just fine.  It is so light and airy it almost feels like wearing nothing, if we get a good summer I’m sure I’ll wear it a lot.

Both the top and the dress so up so fast and don’t take that much fabric either.  All these will be stable pieces in my summer wardrobe.  You should make some too and be sure to get the pattern while it is still on sale!!

 

Love

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
