    Same here, was raining in the past 4 years and I’m not joking. Constant Autumn without a break. It is slightly better this year but not even close to what I would call Summer. Very depressing…keep up sewing though ;)

      I really shouldn’t be either. Danish summer has sucked for the last 5 years at least. Seriously considering moving south, once done with education. Btw. Love the things you’ve sewn lately! You don’t blog anymore? I can’t seem to find the time.

    Hi guys and thank you for your quick responses! :-) I have a few issues of Patrones magazines and I really love the styles! My problem is, that they only feature spanish sizes 40-44-46, I think it is. I’m very close to being a size 42, but not being able to fully understand the directions, I really have a problem. I would love to be able to down-size a size 44, because I’ve been told, that it’s easier to down take the pattern a size down than up. Is that true? :-) Thank you so much for taking your time to help me! It means a lot! :-)

    The E971 Tunic pattern was a free download from the old Burda site, www.burdamode.com; I couldn’t find any trace of it on the new site when I tried to link my project back to the pattern.

    As it was a free download I expect I could e-mail it to you – the pattern and instructions files come to about 1.5Mb although they would be larger when encoded as an e-mail attachment.

      Thank you so much, but I think I found the pdf, when I searched google. It’s a pattern with several different models, right? :-)

    The All-sizes trapezoid dress is a pattern from Burda easy fashion spring 2011. You can still buy it in most european countries. Many german internet shops stil sell it and shipping to denemark is not that expencive.

    Well actually no, but i wanted to do it propperly this time to get everything just the way I wanted to. It’s coming along but there’s these ugly hangers in the bathroom that I took the liberty of removing yesterday. But they where not only screwed but also glued, so I ripped of a bit of the wall to. not goooood! But it still looked better then when they where on the wall. haha! Will have to work that out somehow.

    But hey! Your appartment sounds dreeeeeeamy!

      Hehe. Not good ripping down pieces of wall!! :-)
      How is the paiting coming along? Looks nice?

      Don’t know if the new place is dreamy or not. (I’ll tell you in about a month, when I’ve moved all my things and myself in and I’ve slept there the first couple of nights.) :-D
      Right now my old house is just a complete mess! I’m sitting among a million boxes and I’m still not even halfway :-P
      Well, I have a minor deadline saturday at noon. Bf will come and take me back into the city. I have to look at a new sofa and the kids have a sleep-over with some friends.
      I was thinking… Do you sew curtains and stuff like that yourself? I was thinking of doing so, in the same fabric as the sofa-cover, I’m gonna make.

      Tak! :-) Har bare forelsket mig i de aber, sidst jeg var ude og handle, og da jeg så dine t-shirts, var jeg da slet ikke i tvivl om, at jeg skal sy noget til Laurits (min lillesøsters søn.)

    hey there! sorry to hear that fabric cost that much in DK, that really sucks. It’s quite cheep on this end of Europe, here in Belgrade we have some large stores that sells Italian textiles by kilogram! Hilarious, isn’t it :) For example, fabric for this cardigan cost me less then 7€! Anyway, a friend of mine is crazy about Denmark! For some reason she thought of it as of some kind of dream land, one day we will pack her and send her to Copenhagen for the rest of her life :) Funny girl.

    I did. SORTA! I looked at clarebare.com and thought I would try my own. I traced over a pair of mine, so I would have a perfect fit…and it turned out great. Thanks for the comment though…glad you liked it. What about you!! LOVE the hat! I’ve been trying to make the whole flower thing, can’t get it right!!

      I can see, if I can find the original how-ti in the magazine, when I’m done cleaning my house later tonight (it’s 6.41 pm here) I really like the pink ones! Very feminine (something I’m trying to rehearse a bit ;-) ) and chic. I think I have some patterns for underwear hidden somewhere. Just startet sewing again aften a 6 year brake (Got divorced and then I got ill) but now I’m sorta back in business ;-)

    Home again. Going to a friends’ house tonight. My voice is still missing. My Moschino-skirt-project turned out great! It’s nolonger a size EU 40 but around a 36 and fits just perfect! :-D Started on a frog-teddy-cuddly-thing for my sisters son. Have made the arms. Bf and I think that it’s oh-so-cute! :-) I’ll post a picture as soon as I’ve finished it ;-) Hope you all have had a fantastic weekend! Mine has been one of great food, great wine and great inspiration. :-)

    Going to bf’s for the weekend. Finally feeling a little better. Only thing missing, is my voice. I sound like I’ve eaten a frog :-S Haven’t seen bf the entire week. Miss him like crazy! Only bringing minor projects. Think we need some time together! Have a wonderful weekend! I’m planning to ;-)

    Home again. Feeling sorta queasy. Happy that I got to buy all sorts of fantastic fabrics (and that I got to borough some amazing how-to-papers on drawing a dress-sloper from bf’s best friend :-D ), before I got sick, so now I’ve actually got something to do, while laying on the sofa, feeling sorry for myself :-D Think I’m gonna work on a drawing of my own version, of a Dries van Noten – coat I found in a magazine earlier.

    OMG I feel sick! Flu started yesterday. Now Ulrik (bf)‘s sick too. So it’s not gonna be an afternoon of sewing for me, but an afternoon on the sofa, watching Formula 1, half asleep. Well maybe I’ll start making the frog-teddy-thing for my sisters son. Happy sunday, everyone!

    Today I’ve been at home, doing the laundry (sigh…), baking, designing a t-shirt/dress and listening to Rammstein (German Rockband). I’m trying to get used to wearing my new glasses (Revenge of the Nerds – cool-edition ;-D). Teamed the up with my blue StarWars t-Shirt and am quite happy with the result. Thinking about maybe getting some real 80’es ones with a slim titanium-like frame and LARGE glasses. :-)

    Last day home. Going the bf’s house for a couple of days. I’m bringing my stuff so that I can draw while I’m there. Have to have something to do or I’ll go crazy! Thinking of uploading a picture of the lace-leggins. Been told by Martin, that the sewing machine he gave me, is named Betty. ;-) Think it’s kinda cute ;-)

    Been searching the internet for info on my sewing machine(s). The new/old one, my friend Martin gave me, is most likely from the 50’es and it works perfectly! Can’t wait to make my first vintage-inspired dress! :-D

    Wuah! Got my new/old sewing machine yesterday and just got home now. Have to try it later!!! I’m trying to start a blog, first section in danish, but I think I’ll start writing in english. More to come. Didn’t get around to get the bf to take pictures this weekend. Was sick with the flu all day yesterday, but I’m starting to feel better, after drinking loads of tea an eating a lot of dryyy toast. :-P Well, that’s all for now. Have to clean my tiny house and try sewing on the new machine. :-)

    Just finished knitting a looong tube in black alpaca-wool. Planning on adding some “flowers” made in 3 different fabrics/structures. Might do it this weekend. Going to bf’s house. Have to have something to do :-) Kinda excited to see how it turns out. Might catch up on some reading too. Would like to make a jacket for my bf, but I’¨ve never made mens wear before. Should be interesting :-) Have a wonderful friday night! I know I’m planning to :-)

    Found a vintage silk-dress (peach-colored), in the back of my wardrobe, that I wanna wear at the reception monday night. Totally forgot that I bought it … Cut off 33 cm and I plan to add a fake-leather belt or something like that. Going to town tomorrow so I’ll just have to see, what I can find.

    Looking very much forward to this weekend! If I’m lucky I can convince my boyfriend to drive me to a friends house, to pick up an old sewing mashine. My “new” one just broke down! Guess it’s been too long. At least I got to finish my lace-leggins. I made a pattern for leggins as the first pattern I’ve made in six years. Soooo proud of the fact, that it has turned out a success!! :-D Well, back to more drawing. Wanna draw a sloper for a jacket before bedtime.
