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 links and such this has caused you. So thanks for the patience! And please make sure to follow my new domain instead of the old one, as it won´t redirect automatically. Thanks!  I love Elsa Schiaparelli. Both as a designer, but also as a woman – she was waaaay ahead of her time,…

I am moving (the blog) – and Hurrah for Me Made May 2013!

So. Exciting news here today – I am officially moving my blog! This blog has existed in one way or another since 2005. From the very beginning my blog host was blogger.com, but as I got more and more frustrated with the interface of blogger, I decided to transform it into a self-hosted WordPress blog. And I haven´t looked back since. I love WordPress. In my opinion, it´s the best. 🙂 Anywhooo… For a while now, my blog has had the alluring adress of solvi.se/delfinelise. This, of course, is because I own the domain solvi.se (.se is the Swedish domain code, and solvi is my name without the funny Norwegian letter ø).…

Sølvi & the Summer Dresses: New Look 6377

By Sølvi Elise | 31/03/2013

  I am currently going through my summer wardrobe, and in between well-blogged items, there were a few little numbers that never have gotten any attention here on this space. So I thought it would be nice to introduce you to some of my unblogged summer dresses. To say I have enough summer dresses would be the understatement of the year. But, if I ever was shipped off to a desert island, I´d be prepared!   On my last count there were 21 one them, and I am pretty sure that number has gone up by now. One of the summer dresses I made a couple of years…

Exploring New Territories: Boxiness.

By Sølvi Elise | 08/03/2013

First of all: Happy International Women's Day everybody! The online sewing community rock, and is an excellent output for preserving and at the same time developing activities that traditionally are tied to women. We are keeping female history alive by engaging in sewing, knitting, embroidering and crocheting. Keep up the good work everyone! With that said, here is my most recent effort in keeping the proud tradition of home sewing alive. Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in my own style rut, and it seems like I can't get myslef out of it. After years of sewing for myself, I've learned what styles suits me well, and I…

Sølvi Elise is wearing a selfmade shirt and heavy glasses

 Hi there! I´m Sølvi Elise. Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. This is a space where I share my craft projects  and thoughts and ideas concerning handmade in a consumerist world.

I live in Oslo, Norway where I use my spare time stitching up my own wardrobe. So far, I´d say that 80 % of my closet is filled with me-mades. I also have an interest in historical sewing, embroidery, knitting, crochet, leatherwork, tablet weaving, rigid heddle loom- weaving, cocktails, jewelry making, makramé, shoe making, drawing, paper craft, machine knitting and generally any craft that looks like fun.
