For the most part Anita only wants to wear dresses. Since you usually find her climbing trees or jumping around somewhere, not in an elegant princess style but more like 10 elephants have invaded your house kind off style, knit dresses are to be preferred. So as soon as the Groove Dress from Madeit Patterns came out I snatched it up!

One day I came home from work and found a pile of fabric on my doorsteps. I suspect it’s from one of my very good neighbors (Lena?) but I always forget to ask, anyway thank you from the bottom of my heart! It definitely made my day – I mean come on what sewing nerd doesn’t like the sight of a big pile of fabric! Whoop Whoop!!
I knew right away that some of it would become a new pair of Twisted Trousers for Viktor.

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.

This has got to be one of the longest weeks ever! Anita has been sick for almost a week. I thought she was better on Tuesday but no, the fever came back and we are still at home cuddling on the couch all day long – sigh! Last night I was feeling sorry for myself so I had a glass of wine and did some sewing therapy and oh it was so good! Since Anita is also sick of being sick I made a dress for her and she was so happy this morning when she woke up and saw her new 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!
