Did you see my Frida shorts?
I’ve been away on a camping trip with my family and we had such a great time. It’s great to get to go away and simplify your life for a little bit, although I must admit I really missed my sewing machine – LOL!
Before we left I made myself a pair of shorts, the brand new Frida shorts from Wardrobe by me to be specific.
I started this sewing thing 4 years ago when my daughter was almost a year old and it all begun with me bying some fat quarters to make cute skirts for her like I had seen on Pinterest. That was like all the ambition I had back than and never in a million years did I think I would be sewing for myself, let alone what I’m about to show you now!! It would never have happened without the lovely Christina of Wardrobe by me, so thank you Christina!!
Here it is, welcome to by dagbjort – swimwear edition!
So the thing is Wardrobe by me has just released the ultimate swimwear collection. Each pattern can be purchased with a release discount of $2.00 (code beach). Swimsuit and bikini is $11.00 the kimono is $9.00. If you buy both the bikini and the swimsuit the kimono in included for free. The price of all three patterns is $22.00, in other words a great deal!
Alright, since it’s almost summer I guess it’s fitting that I share my new wool coat with faux fur collar. On a side note, first day of summer is actually a national holiday in Iceland and was on April 21. So at least it would be fitting if I was planning on spending my summer in Iceland because you never no what kind of weather you’ll be getting and need to be prepared for it all. But I’m not, so maybe we could all just pretend that I am extremely great at planning ahead and that I now have a new coat all ready for fall! But my friends and family know that’s just one big lie. So I guess my reason is that I have had this wool fabric for some time now and then the Nina Coat pattern from Shwin Designs came along and I saw a match and wanted to give it try.
I have been working on some items lately that are a bit more challenging than what I’m used too. Which is a good thing but I needed a nice simple project to balance things out to make sure I didn’t loose my sewing mojo and Christina from Wardrobe by me came to my rescue and released a flared skirt add on for the Diana Wrap Dress.
With the help of Wardrobe by me I will soon have a full wardrobe by me!
My newest item is the Diana Wrap Dress, which was just released. At first I wasn’t sure a wrap dress was my thing but I’m totally sold. You should definitely check out all the other tester versions, there are some amazing pieces there. Some are casual like mine, some are smoking hot and some are really elegant. So making a wrap dress to match your style is no problem!
