Just so you know, this post is lenghty. 🙂 What went wrong with this outfit?  Can you spot what´s wrong with this outfit? (Except for the fact that it is in no way weather appropriate right now up here).  No? Let me help you:       The shirt So. Most everything that could go…

Do you remember the navy blue velvet dress I was about to make back in …ehem…September? Well, turns out, Vogue 8280 wasn´t really for me. Because this was a style of dress I hadn´t tried out before, I decided to make a trial dress. A wearable muslin if you will. The pattern was great, and…

If you are wondering about the recent radio silence from this channel, then let me explain why, using pictures. I went to a city where the ceilings looked like this:  where doors and walls looked like this: and where cats could be found laying like this: A place where the food and drinks were delicious: and…

If anyone´s wondering where I am at, check out the Me-Made-May 2012 flickr group, and there you´ll find me! I thought I´d share some of my outfits with you here on the blog as well, and I´ve put together a collage of the first couple of weeks. If you click on the image it´ll take…

During the last couple of months I haven´t been able to show you much of anything I´ve been sewing. Because I have a neck problem, my computer time has been limited for work only, but I am slowly getting better, and hope to return to “regular schedule” during the next couple of months. Speaking of…

  So, a little late in the Cinematic Sewing Game, I return with some plans for my spring sewing. According to the meteorologists, the weather in Sweden is three weeks early, and we are experiencing some wonderfully sunny and warm days. Maybe it´s time to bring out the summer wardrobe? Or maybe it´s time to make some spring-y…
