Liberty blouse for our anniversary

Still happy after spending our anniversary, married 5 years! Hours after, some kind of food poisoning turned up and I didn´t look this happy.
I will take some close-up pictures on the blouse. Anyway the quality of the Liberty fabric is fantastic!

Some day I will try this out!

I have taken a handful of classes of sewing and pattern design. But I would love to try an online course focus on dresses!

Unfinished silk dress

I bought this fabric were I usually buy most of my fabric; Italienska tyger. Nadja, who is the owner has a magic touch when she buys fabrics in Italy. The shop in Mölndal offers a lot more than the web shop. I have built a large stock just waiting to be transformed into clothes. I will show you some day.

On this dress, however, I couldn´t decide how to do with the neckline. When I can´t decide, I put it away for some weeks. Now I have some ideas, but what do you think?

I needed an assignment...

from my course to get started. Sadly but true. I have thought about it for a long time but here we finally go!

Last week we celebrated my grandmother who turned 90. She loves colours so wearing black were no option. I made a dress in wonderful silk Liberty from Burda 7/2011. Together with a jacket I made last year in silk velvet. To sew in silk velvet was the worst ever but I was happy with the result!
