Description

I was absolutely attracted the muumi fabric for adults when I saw at first sight on the internet.
It looks calm and very like north europe.
So I didn’t have difficulty to using the fabric for making my outfit.

The pattern I used is from japanese sewing magazine published last year.

This picture of the fabric tells me a story.

    This is absolutely Gorgeous Rikamekko! I do love the Moomin troll :) It is actually a Finnish-Swedish author and illustrator, Tove Jansson who created this children’s book figure :-) Lucky you who can wear this nice blouse-jacket!

      Thank you Ellen : ) It isn’t too much to say that moomin novels are bible to me. They tells precious things that couldn’t see by eyes. Important things are invisible. I feel with moomin characters wearing it.
