FO: BurdaStyle highwaisted pencil with pockets.

This skirt has been in the making (and to be honest, has been finished as well) for a while. I´ve wanted a teal pencil skirt since last year, and I bought the fabric in December a year ago. Then the fabric just layed there for a month or five, until I finally came around to…

When I AM sewing…

So, for the last few months, I’ve been producing more than I have been documenting. consider this an update! First, I’d like to talk to you about stashbusting. Back in January, I promised myself and the Internet to do some serious stash digging, and try to use some of that stuff that’s been laying around…

Leaning in

There is a business advice, almost like a cliché, that suggests that one should lean into things. Instead of having everything perfect before you do things, you should start small, dipping one toe into the water at a time.

When I am not sewing…

I accessorize. I have been making necklaces this summer. Lots and lots of necklaces. Some are bold. Some are almost fragile. I love to wear them with my Tamanegi Kobo Heather sweaters. Or paired with a simple shirt. They even inspired me to give my jewelry some more space. So, guys. What have you been…

This year quite a few members of the Japanese sewing community joined in, and brought an extra flair to the group. One pattern company that seemed to reoccur quite frequently was Tamanegi-Kobo. Tamanegi-Kobo sells PDF patterns, some have English instructions,…

The evolution of me-mades 2010 – 2013

As May 2013 is closing in on us I wanted to share some reflections about my relation to the Me Made months. My first challenge was May 2010. My very first me-made pledge was to wear one me-made or refashioned item each day  for the month of May. I think I did pretty good back…

FO: A shockingly pink linen shirt

First a small tech-y note: I am so sorry for anyone having trouble finding my blog lately. Something crazy happened in the move from solvi.se/delfinelise to delfinelise.com resulting in the death of the old blog – instead of it just redirecting here. I honestly don´t know what happened, and I am sorry for the broken…
