My pink sweater dress

Another post this week!

I’ve figured out that if I don’t blog about my sewing stuff right away I dont get it done, because suddenly I have something new and exciting to share.  Like now I have two very cool things in the works for the kids coming soon.

So here is the pink sweater dress you saw peaking out from underneath my lovely Cocoon Coat.

My new classic coat!

It’s getting colder here in Scandinavia so it was in order to start sewing seasonal appropriate clothes.  Perfect timing to join in on testing the newest pattern from Wardrobe by me, the classic coat.

There is a new dress pattern in town – the Skola Dress and Top

Elegance and Elephants just released a new girls pattern for a knit dress/top just in time for back to school.  I got to be in her amazing team of testers.  This pattern was just perfect from the start.

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.

Going totally outside my comfort zone!

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!

Get your groove on!

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!

My Nina

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.
