Issie Top Collection

So, I’m hopping on the Issie Top Tour Bus today along with two lovely ladies from Belgium With love by Eva and Stannel and I really don’t even know where to begin!  Maybe its best to start at the beginning?  That will take us all the way back to 2014.  Way back then I made the Little Betty Top by Sewpony and I even wrote a little blog post on it here.  I’ll show you a little preview…

I mean common how stinking cute is my baby girl and her Little Betty Top?!  I really loved that top.  I have learned though that you don’t make an entire top out of rib knit.  But hey I stencilled that butterfly on and painted those dots so that’s something. Continue reading “Issie Top Collection”

Lucky me!

Have any of you ever won the big pot in the lotteri?  I won 50kr a couple of weeks ago, thats little over $6.00 so not exactly the big pot hahaha!  But early this sommer I was chosen to be a Sewing Portfolios Ambassador and I got 3 yards of fabric from Michael Miller to play with, now thats what I call winning the big pot!!  I have been treating my fabric like gold and going back and forth on what to make from it.  This is the first time I have been given fabric so this was truly a big deal for me and.  Well, I finally found the patterns I wanted to use and be warned this post will be long!

Sweet sweet Vienna!

Wait what?  Back already?  And I’ll even be back again very soon!

I’ve gotten myself in a bit of a deadline pickle, but I’ll do my very best to meet them all cause I’m not about to let anybody down!

I don’t know what it is but Belgians seem to have some kind of sewing superpower, must be something in the water over there.  They also seem to have access to the prettiest fabrics available, the kind the rest of us can only dream of.  So you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to join in on an Instagram tour featuring The Vienna pattern by two Belgian designers @beletoile and @kaatjenaaisels

Oxford dress is perfect for school!

Anita has had such a growth spurt this summer that almost all her knit dresses are now too small.  So what’s a sewing mom to do?  I think you can guess the answer, wink-wink!

The Cosmo Dress

I saw a call for sewers to participate in a blog tour featuring The Cosmo Dress from Sewpony and all it took to apply was to comment on the Facebook post.  I never in million years thought I would get to join in on the fun so I wasn’t even paying attention to my messenger and it took me a day or two to see the message that I was in.  I panicked and was afraid I had missed my chance, but luckily all was good and here I am! I have to admit that I have a bit of a stage fright being in the company of such great bloggers!  The same is not to be said about my daughter as you will see later on in this post.  Stick around (or at least scroll down) to the end for a discount code.
