I’ve been bitten by the flea market bug – or should I say the flea market fleas?! Whereas in the UK you have car boot sales or often quite small charity shops, here in Finland we have big self service flea markets where you can pay for a booth and sell stuff you don’t want/need anymore. Going through one big space is definitely a more efficient way of finding those treasures than going to one charity shop after the other – especially if they’re not near one another.
The dress I made for myself recently was a fail – so I was very happy when Lana’s dress turned out great! I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty damn proud to have made this pinafore dress with my own hands. There’s something really nice about being able to say to Lana that mamma made her dress herself! To show her that not everything has to be bought in a shop. Lana told the Sainsbury’s delivery guy that her mum made her a dress so I think she likes it haha.
