Today is a rainy sunday in Trondheim... Embarrassed I decided to let the curriculum rest and do some sewing instead.  Cheesy Here are the results. What do you think?

I really love the first top for both style and color!  Is there a specific pattern you used?  If not, how did you do the draping?

I don't care, I'm still free; you can't take the sky from me.

Both pieces are wonderful!  I like the drape of the shirt. You must have broad shoulders!  My shoulders are narrower than average, and If I were to wear that shirt, I think it would fall off my shoulders, and hang at my boobs!  I love the neckline though!  The skirt - I am in love with that material.  Given that you live in Norway, I doubt I'll be able to find it on this side of the 'pond'. 

I've been to Trondheim - once. I don't remember all of it though; I was there visiting the engineering school, from KTH (Kungliga Tekniska Hogskolan) in Stockholm.  I was an exchange student from the US in Maskin Teknik.  There were four of us from KTH, me, the only American, and three Swedes.  We arrived in Trondheim, and were greeted with Akquavit (not my favorite!).  I was then informed that we had to drink for our countries:  All the Norwegians could drink one, the Swedes had to divide the number of drinks the Norwegians drank by 3, and each drink that many drinks; as the lone American, I was supposed to drink as many drinks as ALL the Norwegians.  I tried...but didn't succeed.  The next day we all went on some sort of skiing expedition where we tried to climb trees, limbo, jump over ropes, etc. with our skis ON!  It was the craziest thing I've ever seen.  Leave it to the Norwegians to come up with that one.  I don't know if they still do that in the Mechanical Engineering department....  Anyway, that's my experience of Trondheim!

Hi Smiley Thanks for the compliments on the clothing!

About the top:

javarose:I didnt use a pattern, but sort of made it up along the way. The draping is simply done at the doll after making the hole for the head in the fabrics. I found the midpoint and started pinning up folds with a fingers width outwards. then i folded and stitched around the neckline. I am considering making some more to give away for christmas presents, in that case I am happy to make a tutorial if you guys are interested:)

Marie: I thought the same when I saw it on the doll after finishing it- but it turns out that when I am wearing it some of the "headhole" (whats it called? Wink) is falling down at my back, leaving a "V" shape at my back so that it doesnt fall off.

The fabric for the skirt is bought at "stoff og stil", originally a Danish consept that has opened stores in Norway. They have a webshop at www.stoffogstil.no, but I dont know if they ship stuff over the pond or how expensive that would turn out to be:-[ Also the page is in Norwegian so contact by mail might be a good idea if you are interested.

Marie: Ah, so you have experienced the drinking culture of maskinteknikk. They are truly comitted to give newbies at uni a rather elaborating lesson in Norwegian "water of life" and how to consume as much as possible of it at shortest possible time! I can assure you that we are not all like that:) - At least not all of the time Wink If you're ever in Trondheim again- please give notice Smiley

Wow that shirt looks so very comfortable! If I tried draping it the way you did I would not get it even at all.

The skirt.. wow. The material and the style are adorable!

Way to go! Grin

I love the shirt and would definitely give it a go if you made a tutorial!


Don't frown because someone might be falling in love with your smile.

Rainy Sundays sure are productive for you, how amazing Smiley

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley
