More Wool

And finally I have taken a picture of the trousers I made during Kid's Clothes Week.

I love that organic wool fleece from Siebenblau. Pockets and ribbing are also wool (Myllymuksut and Anita Pavani).

This might become my favourite fabric and my favourite pattern: from Heilt Spesiell og Jubel's book. Sizes 8 and 4 years.

Still winter

Winter is long up North. So I still make wool stuff.

This time a new hat for the oldest one. Warm and soft organic wool fleece, inside and out. He loves it.

I used Hamburger Liebe's free pattern. Here. But I cut it out in one piece i.e. I attached the top bits to the base and then cut it out.

Rosarødt og litt sprøtt

Jeg fikk en bestilling på et ullsett - genser og longs - med noe rosa og rødt og gjerne litt knæsj i størrelse 92/98. Og her er hva det ble til:

A customer asked me to make a wool set - shirt and leggins/longjohns - size 2/3 years. Red and pink and a little crazy. So here you go:

Mønster: genseres er raglangenseren fra Sewing for Boys, longs er eget mønster
Stoff: Merinoull fra Myllymuksut og Janus
Genseren er sydd med flatlock, longsen har overlocksømmer som er stikket ned (oppover).

Patterns: raglan shirt from Sewing for Boys, my own leggins pattern
Fabrics: merino wool from Myllymuksut and Janus
The shirt is sewn with flatlock seams, the leggins have overlock seams.

Project Sewn - The Fashion Era Challange

70's inspired trousers

I love clothes inspired by the 70's. And I made these trousers for a friend who does too - and I don't have any action shots.
Hard to tell from the picture, but these are slightly flared, have a very 70's colour combination and the pockets are made from real 70's vintage fabric that I found in a second hand store.

Pattern: Farbenmix Helgoland, with some changes
Fabric: Elastic cord and rib knit from stoff & stil, 70's bedlinen.

Project Run and Play week 4: Signature look

I have a little boy who loves cars. And orange. And this orange car sweat knit. And he has grown so much that he needs lots of new clothes. So here is what I made for him:

So why is this my signature style?
I love combining different fabrics, I love colours, I love applications, pockets and those little extras and I love flatlock seams on shirts. And it's comfortable - perfect for running and playing.

I blogged the shirt a while ago. You can find more about it here.

Mad for Plaid - a little late

Last week's challenge at Project Run & Play was "Mad for Plaid". So I took this fabulous yellow vintage fabric that I've had plans for for a while and started making another pair of new trousers.
Planning and sewing with a deadline is not always easy with two small boys in the house - and this time it just didn't work. And I finished a day late for the linking party. But I finally made them instead of thinking about them and my little customer was happy. He had fallen in love with the fabric "with all the windows" the second he saw it...

Pattern: I used a pattern from a burda kids magazine from a couple of years ago and added piping to the pockets and cuffs to the legs. Size 116 plus a little extra length because of the cuffs.
Fabric: Vintage wool plaid that I got via Sykroken. Turquoise merino interlock from Myllymuksut.

Just in time for the first frosty nights.
