  Serger Love Imagine that. I have a serger again. My serger broke, slowly but steadily during the winter months, and since February I have been without. When it finally did break all together, I feared it was nothing to be done, so I delayed taking it to the shop, because I was afraid of…

Cocoon jacket Look what I made! On a whim, I decided that my wardrobe was in desperate need of a cocoon cardigan. Actually, from idea to finished project, I think it took less than 24 hours. That must be a new record for me. I love to plan things, and most of the things I´ve…

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…

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…

FO: Fairtrade pencil skirt.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my UFO post. It seems like most settle on three projects at a time. That sounds sane. I am not going for sane, though. I´m going for chaos! 😉 No, seriously, eleven is a little excessive, but I did actually finish one of them yesterday, as well as…

All…

OWOP: Day one

I don’ t think I’ve mentioned that I’m taking part in the One Week, One Pattern challenge. A bunch of sewers are wearing garments that are different versions of the same pattern for one whole week.

Markal/Shiva Paint Stiks are awesome!

All the way back in November I announced that I had played around with some fabric print using a type of oil paint sticks. For some reason, they go by two different names. They are called Shiva in the US and Markal in the UK and here in Sweden. They are a little bit like giant…
