I’m so excited!!!
It’s hard to believe that I was chosen to participate in "Symesterskapet", 
the Norwegian Sewing Bee, of more than 300 appliers..  
I feel SO Lucky to be a part of this fabulous sewing family! 

I hope you will follow me as far as the show is going on…

I know it will be very exciting, and I will learn a lot, and meet a lot of new sewing friends ♥
It will be challenging, blood, sweat and tears…! No eating, no sleeping…! Oh, what can I expect..

The first episode will take place at NRK Monday the 30th of October at hour 19.45.

I'm wearing my royal blue lace blouse which is sewn of lace I bought from alfatex.de 
I have used sport-stretch as lining, and with the bottoms at back it's like 60's style :)
The skirt is made of wool fabric from janusull.no 
Both patterns are from BurdaStyle.

Concert Skirt








 

 We should be wearing light denim and white top for our concert this year.
Since I didn't find anything nice in my wardrobe I decided to make a new skirt.
I love to wear linen garments, and since I had this nice fabric which I bought at 
Skaar Tekstil I thought it would be great for this occasion.
The pattern is from Burda Easy Fashion 2007.

"Firework" Dress :)



This is a fabric that makes me in a good mood!





I have used the same pattern as for the Striped Summer Dress, but this is a bit shorter.
It comfy to wear with the gathering at the sides and back part.
I think the dress is nice and a bit special with the cut out back :)

Silk Top with Keyhole



This is a super silk-top! I had some silk fabric left from an earlier project which I thought would be nice for this top. Since I didn't have enough, I have combined it with satin for the back part. It will be nice to wear under a blazer, and both with a skirt or jeans:)
The Skirt is from an earlier  project.

Cutout Back Dress


All of a sudden I was able to find the perfect pattern to use with this lovely fabric!

I love sewing summer dresses, 
and I think it's nice with the opening at the back :)
 have used viscose fabric which are light and falls very nicely for the skirt.
The zipper are sewn at the left side with a little hook on top.


I had to line the dress since the fabric are light,
and I have used cotton voile as lining.

Lace Blouse


Orange gives me Energi! That's why I love this color ♥
This is an easy lace blouse with slopers in front.
I have used sport stretch as lining since the lace is transparent, but not for the short sleeves.

The fabric is stretchy so I did'nt have to make an opening at the back.

I've made Blue Lace Blouse earlier, but then I used buttons at the back.
The Linen Skirt with flowers is from  an earlier project.

Red & Black Dress

It's my first time using jersey for this technique. I have used courtelle jersey combined with black sport stretch, but I think it worked out well.
As basic pattern I have used BurdaStyle pattern #103 01/2016  but I've made my own twist with the pattern as you can see on the pics :) 
I have made another dress of this pattern before, but then it's a two pcs-set with a dress and a long-sleeve top.
