Me Made May 2014
It´s that time of the year. My favorite holiday (IMO MMM is an holiday): Me Made May! Are you excited? I am excited. So. Last year my resolution looked a little something like this: “I, Sølvi of delfinelise.com, endeavor to wear only me-mades throughout the month of May 2013 (with the exception of tights, footwear, national costume and…Read More
Sew Dolly Clackett – My Contribution.
I met both Roisin and Nic once, last year while visiting London – both terrific people. So when I learned the news that they were getting married, and that Sarah would host a Sew- Along, the excitement was pretty big. Sarah – you are a genius (and thank goodness you didn´t quit blogging all together)!…Read More
Spring is in the air. Although there might be a couple of months still before the leaves on the trees will start to show up, it definately is time for some spring sewing planning. Of course, I´ve had my Springspiration board on Pinterest for months, so I am not completely unprepared. colors As you might…Read More
Keen on some very retro sewing? I´m guest blogging!
If you want to know more about the Vikings and how they dressed, head on over to the Sewcialists HQ – I´ve written a blog post about it as part of the Shieldmaiden Sewalong. Finally – all the knowledge I´ve acquired as a museum guide comes to use for something else. Enjoy! …oh, and there´s…Read More
Deer and Doe Airelle
The last thing I finished in 2013 was a Deer and Doe Airelle. Since May I have been falling more and more for Deer and Doe´s pattern line. Apart from the fact that the designs are trés chic and very well made, the ones I have made (Datura, Belladonne and Airelle) all go easy on…Read More
FO: Marcy Tilton Vogue 8934 Coat
As soon as I saw this pattern, I knew this would be my next winter coat project. I have a million winter coat patterns in my stash. Some are feminine, som are boxy, some are easy, some are advanced, some are detailed, some have very little instructions. But none of them could quite match Vogue…Read More
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…Read More
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…Read More
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. And before you know it – you are accomplishing things that was out of reach before.…Read More
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…Read More
