I've made a few and people go nuts over them. I can't wear it out the house without at least a dozen people smiling at me or making a comment. Love this pattern!
Vaappi - A dress to SMILE for!
and welcome to my shop Vaappi, or as we say in Norwegian; Våppi (you pronounce the 'å' -letter almost like 'oh!').
Vaappi is my daughters nickname. When we in Norwegian say 'vår pie' super-fast, directly translated into English: our girl, it sounds like Vaappi. Therefore the shop/brand name 'Vaappi'.
My name is Jeanette, I work full-time at a company that builds fiber broadband all over Norway, I have a partner through many years, Tom, and together we have a fantastic daughter, Emilie (12 years). Sewing is my extra job/hobby - I love to sew! I am 'hooked' on jersey fabrics and have all these idèas buzzing around in my head of things I would like to sew. Sometimes I wish that a day consists of 12 more hours...
Even though it is me who designs, cuts, handprints and sews the dresses, I consider 'Vaappi' to be our family business. Both my partner and our daughter helps me out with practical tasks and I am super lucky to have such good helpers :)
I take pride in my work and it's important to me that the dresses I make have good quality. To achieve that I use the necessary time to make a dress - I don't rush anything - and I aim to use equipments and supplies, like fabrics and threads, with good quality.
In addition to selling my dresses online. I also attend at home party's + sells my dresses at a store in Trondheim (Norway).
I hope you'll find something you like here at 'Vappi'. I do custom orders, so If you find a dress you like, but perhaps not in your size, or you would like different colours or print, - don't hesitate to contact me.
Have a nice day!
I'm a self-taught sewer who has been sewing since elementary school. As a child, my mother used to call me 'the sewing machine killer'.. Thankfully much has changed since then :) I love bright colors, dots and stripes and fun clothes!

Message to Norwegians: Jeg blir mva pliktig så fort registreringsprosessen er ferdig. Salg gjort til utlandet skal jeg ikke betale mva av, mens salg gjort innenfor Norge, må jeg etterbetale mva på. Hvis du bor i Norge og ønsker å bestille hos meg, må du ta kontakt så jeg kan legge opp et privat produkt i Etsy butikken min, evt. kan jeg henvise deg til min private nettbutikk. (Jeg beklager at prisene 'innomhus' blir dyrere enn når jeg selger ut av landet!)
