Thoughts, dreams & ideas of the perfect spring/summer wardrobe. Yes, I`ll have to start early...

Happy New Year to all my readers! Hope you all had a happy holiday.
Suddenly january was knocking on my door, before I even got to think twice! Better let it in, I say. The quicker it gets in, the quicker it can leave, and make room for spring! Spriiiing... S P R I N G..springggg!
Taste that word. Can you feel it? the tingling in your toes, and the delightfull sensation of hope? Hope that the degrees will creep up, small signs of summer in the pavement cracks (you know, flowers..), green leeves growing on trees and bushes. And the sun! Oh, the sun! Ray of sunshine beaming on my waaaaay to pale, freckled skin (us vikings....).
Did I mention that it was only yesterday I threw out the christmas tree and decorations? *sigh*
I guess it is still some time left before all this will come, but a girl can dream. Dream about a new wardrobe. Because a girl neeeeds some fine spring and summer clothes suitable for every occasion!
That is why I want to get a heads up, and start early. If I know my self (and I do...) I`ll never finnish in time.
So better hurry up!
After watching other blogs and the allmighty Pinterest, my head is full of ideas and patterns. Here are some of the items on my to-do-list:

The Banksia top by Megan Nielsen. So simple and necessary!

This is Hazel from Victory Patterns. I love the bow! So sofisticated!
I should have that look...

This is allso from Victory Patterns. I love the chanel look on the pink dress, detailed 
whit lovely buttons. Allso super qute pockets! This one is a must!

Not quite finnished whit Victory Patterns yet...
This is Simone. It can be made both as a dress and as a shorter version. I love both!
The long version would be great at the beach.

Then its the AVA dress/topp. I have seen so many versions of this! It can be made up in a various versions.

The Jasmine Blouse from Colette Patterns. 

Just in case it gets chilly (Hey! I live in Norway! So the odds are not on my side...).
This lovely jacket is the Cordova Jacket from Sewaholic Patterns.

I am shure I mentioned the beach somwhere up there, so I guess I would need a bathing suit then? If not for swimming, then absolutely to sunbathe in! This amazing bombshell swimsuit that Sophie over at Cirque du Bebe made is to die for! Read all about it!
Shorts would allso be proper, if the temperatur let it! I am up for suggestions there....

All the items I mentioned up here were very "hot" in 2013. It just took me a while to realize it. Haha...
But I am shure, that even before I can get my hands on these patterns, there will be more recent temptations and wants for my spring/summer wardrobe.


  1. I bought a multipack of the victory patterns early last year and I am ashamed to say I STILL haven't gotten around to making any of them yet! How dreadful am I?!! I will have to get them printed off and started soon. I look forward to seeing which patterns you get around to trying out xxx

  2. Hi Hanna! So nice to read youre comment:) I do this all the time... I buy patterns that I offcourse just HAVE to have! And then dont use them.... its a shame really!
    Hey! I really liked the pattern of youre buttoned up peplum top! I have to give that one a go:) Looking forward to following youre blog:D
    Concearly, Tone

  3. I can't wait to see the results of your spring/summer sewing. I should probably get started too, but I just made a general list for this year. Victory patterns seem to pop up a lot, I need to check them out. The Hazel dress looks amazing. And the Sewaholic Cordova jacket looks good too, I can relate to chill coming from Finland ,D

  4. Neither can I! Haha... Every nothern girls should have lots of jackets! And I do, sadly for my husband:p
    He has the idea that 2 is enough. *LOL*


I love reading you`re comments!
