Where did you get the fabric? Can you just walk into a shop and request Moomin fabric?

Viviane Schwarz said...

In Scandinavia, I believe, you can. This particular length was a present from a lovely lady. I have some more fabric that I bought from an ebay shop in the form of duvet covers and pillow cases which can be cut up and made into more exciting items, and there's also this shop which has some REALLY nice prints based on the picture books. I've got the "Moomin Mama picking berries" design and it is good enough to frame.

Oooh. We should have a moomin afternoon tea, and I can wear my moomin corset.

Viviane Schwarz said...

Yes please! Just finished the dress, whoo hoooo! We should take moomin cups to the river, and wrapped sandwiches!

And I can bring biscuits in my moomin biscuit tin! Which I love - it has Moomintroll looking out and waving a bit, so every time I take a biscuit I feel like I have to wave at him and say "Hello Moomin".

The dress is gorgeous.
