Okey, so I have had this other blog for about 2 months now. Today I saw that I have a lot of followers on this site so I decided to check in and write this post! The "new" blog contains everyday life, music, fashion and of course CRAFTS! I haven't come around to post a lot yet, but I have an on-going tutorial that will be up in a few days! :)
Hope everything is okey with all of you guys! xx

I'm really in to refashioning right know. Why, you might think? Well for the first, it is easy and for the second, it is wearable immediately! So, to the tunic. It was an ordinary asymmetrical black tunic that I got bored at, I did hardly not use it anymore!
The first thing I did was cutting of the asymmetrical pieces and make it into a long top length.
The neckline were literally falling apart! I solved this problem with pinning black bias tape were the ordinary neckline should have been if I did not remove it.
Taaa daa! A great top that I have been using a couple of times already, even though it now is in the washing machine.

I made this T-shirt from Dixie DIY in February and I wore it immediately! I really like it, however next time I will add a couple of cm because it was a bit short for me.
It is made in a patterned jersey, and I will use it both to dressy and casual events.
The pattern instructions were simple and Dixie had tips for sewing with knits, both over at her blog and included in the pattern.
The T-shirt is really simple, and just take a hour or so to make. And the greatest thing of all is that it is a free pdf pattern! Just print out and start sewing!
Thank you for this pattern Dixie!

I made this dress from a 70's pattern from Simplicity that I bought cheap on Ebay. The fabric is some type of non stretch synthetic fabric that I bought last summer.
There is a ruffle on the bottom of the dress that makes it about 25 cm longer. Next time I will do it without the ruffle, because now it ends a decimeter below the knee. And because I'm short, it isn't as nice as you may think.
The dress is hold up by straps that you tie. Although there is elastic thread it can not be held up only by the elastic.
Normally I am a 38, but this dress in 36 do actually fit very well. I saw that the dress without the ruffle would be a great dress! I'll do that next time.

This is a top I made in November 2011, but never wore, therefore there is no pictures of me in it. Actually, I don't know if I'll ever wear it. I hated the model, and it was my first project sewn in a knit.
The fabric is an amazing leopard pattern jersey.
More pics will come when I actually wear it! (if I do)...
P.S. I don't recommend the pattern
