The fabric has belonged to my grandmother and she used it as a tablecloth for decades ago. Mom gave it to me and I decided to sew a dress of it.

    I can’t say enough about how great Finnish fabric design and architecture is but your dress is fabulous and should be photographed in an Aalto home!

    Oh my gosh, that fabric is just the absolute best! How wonderful to have the history behind it and how clever of you to take the bold step of using it for a dolly-of-a-dress. Your creativity is a rush.

    The dress is wonderful, of course, but the fact that it’s your grandmother’s old tablecloth makes it so GREAT! Love it. :)

    The fabric is lovely! An your dress as well, which, I assume, you made without a pattern (admirative sigh).
