Gingerbread girl - Happy Independence Day, Finns !

Eilen vietimme luokkalaisten kesken iltapäivällä pikkujouluja, ja tähän
asuun minä päädyin. Hamekankaan ostin Fidasta, ja tein siitä toissapäivänä kellohameen.
Tykkään todella paljon siitä! Sisko sanoi, että näytän piparkakulta..

Tänään vietämme Suomen 95:ttä itsenäisyyspäivää. Emme juhli Joonaksen kanssa tätä mitenkään
erityisemmin, emme edes tajunneet ostaa mitään juhlaruokia. Polttelen kynttilöitä ja kuuntelen sota-
ajan musiikkia. Saa nähdä, jakselisinko katsoa myös jonkun sota-ajasta kertovan elokuvan tai

Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää!

 (Translation: We had a small christmas party with my classmates yesterday, and this is
what I wore. I bought that red fabric from the thrift store, and made a circle skirt. I like it
a lot! My sister said I look like a gingerbread..

It is 95th Independence Day of Finland. We don't celebrate it with anything special, we didn't
even remember to buy any special food or sweets. I will light the candles and listen war-time music.
I think I will watch some Finnish war-time movie too.

Happy Independence day, Finns! )

 Wearing: Red circle skirt with bows - made by me
White peter pan collar blouse - thrifted
Red dotty bow - a gift from my sister
Petticoat - Flora Wedding (ebay)

 Kuinka te vietätte itsenäisyyspäivää? :)

Here's my favourite Finnish war-time song, with english lyrics!

  15. That skirt is amazing, you make the nicest circle skirts!

  16. I especially like that last spinning image - with a skirt as perfectly circular as your wonderful creation, it simply has to be twirled like this! Hope you enjoyed an extremely happy Independence day.

  17. CUTE! I can't believe you made that! I've got to get on board with making my own circle skirt very soon. You look so festive! :)
