Remember the dresses I talked about HERE? Anyhoo, on my last visit to Lapland, I managed to take better pics of the dresses and here they are:
Dress for 1-year old, about size 92cm.
Dress for 3-year old, size 104cm
92cm and 104cm dresses
Making the bias tape was probably the hardest and most time-consuming part but I’m very satisfied with the way it looks. Tip to you: make the bias a day before making the actual whatever garment. The process becomes much more enjoyable that way. Here’s how I used it for finishing hems and edges:
Finishing the hem with bias.
Close-up of the hem bias.
Finishing up the sleeve.
Here, just for the heck of it, couple of more close-ups. Just to prove that I really should have considered ironing the dresses before taking pictures.

Thrifty Finn- Seamstress Extra-Ordinaire, at least to Two Little Girls
In May my cousin Jonna cornered me on Facebook and got me to promise that I’d make a skirt for her. And ta-dah, only two months later, I’m done!
My cousin’s clothing size is 158cm but I used Burda’s petite pattern for the skirt as the measurement matched. The fabric is heavy wright cotton I had in my stash.
I love the fabric myself but I’m not sure how much an 11-year old will appreciate it. Oh well, if she doesn’t like it, she can send it back and I can sell it and make her another one. Either case, I’m proud that I got something finished!
Speaking of finished…Craft market in couple of weeks time and I haven’t started making things yet. I see a late night sewing sessions ahead of me.

Hello, hello. It’s pinning time again! Midsummer and super moon came and went. I’ve had two dates this week and one more is coming this Friday. It’s like my life is from Sex & City without the sex. Or the city.
I don’t know what I am trying to say.
Anyhoo, this week I’ve found following things pin worthy:
I pinned this on my board Happy. Because it is! I love the colours, the shapes, the fonts…Everything! I think this would be fantastic as an embroidery piece. Via serendipityvintage.com
This one I like because of the layered style of this photo. It’s from a spring/summer 2011 lookbook of a Japanese label Muveil. The brand is very chic. Via Ay-Mee. Speaking of chic:
You know how I feel about Paris and the french. Well, this is one stereotype in style I can get behind of. Although, if it was I wearing this outfit, I wouldn’t make quite as sophisticated impression (hears My Lumps playing in her head). Via tumblr.
Anyhoo. Seems like I’m in mood for more fashion. Check out this cutie:
I don’t know if it’s the shape, the pattern or the colour that does it for me. I just bought few yards (3 curtains) of floral pattern that I’m going to make into a skirt for my god-daughters Confirmation. The fabric has pink flowers. And I bought it after I saw this pic. Yeah, it’s probably the colour AND the pattern that did it for me. Via adoredvintage.com.
I couldn’t find the original source so I linked for now back to my pin. Anyoo, I pinned this on my board “Useful ‘n Geeky”. I haven’t paid much attention to my blog look lately (apart from removing the background pattern) and I’ve been pinning some inspirations.
And then last but not least:
Labradoodle. EEEEEEEEEEEP! The cuteness is killing me. I repeat. Cuteness is killing me. Via madesays.instagram
Thrifty Finn- Thinking about dogs and fabrics and other happy things.
I’ve been working on a photoshoot for nearly a week (my work is going to be in a magazine! For reals!) but somehow I’ve managed find some time to pin. This week I was interested in:
I’ve pinned tons of vintage greeting cards lately but this one in its simplicity is my favourite. This could be re-made mixed media style. Embroidery and fabric painting. Fabulous.
Speaking of fabulous…This dress by Ulyana Sergeenko is beautiful but that’s not why I pinned it. My interest lies in the way the black material is slightly sheer, letting the nude lining to shine through. I found it so interesting that I pinned this on my sewing board for future material referencing.
Speaking of sewing. This dress is from few years back and is by Michael Kors. He also released this as a sewing pattern and I have it!!! But I haven’t used it yet and I think the reason is that the picture of the dress on the pattern package, is drab brown and the model wearing it is slumping. That’s not how I want to visualize myself wearing the dress. Upon re-seeing this pic on Pinterest, I remembered why I bought the pattern in the first place; it’s verrrrry sexy.
Speaking of sexy:
Have you heard truer words in a long time? I’ve had my fair share of hem line accidents, latest last week. I was walking home and somehow my hip and shoulder bag created just the right kind of friction to hike up my dress hem. I didn’t notice until about 50 meters of so (listening to music, feeling all fierce) and all that time, my neighbourhood got a good view of my control pants. Thrifty Finn, always ready to make a lasting impression.
Maybe a picture of a cute doggy will help me cope:
I feel my nerves getting soothed and the memory of the trauma melting away.
