Novelty Folklore Love - Trying to distract myself with color

Hello everyone,

I struck gold with this vintage novelty skirt featuring some traditional black forrest scenery and can´t wait until it arrives! I am so going to rock this with my sheer black blouse!

And it makes me think "Gosh I need to start to sew some of my own things again!!!" A sewing project would be just the right thing to distract me from beeing miserable. If only I would find the energy to get started and order something :-(

I have a few candidates I would like to sew up to some cute and different clothes...
Light Blue Russian Doll print
Hänsel und Gretel-esque fabric! How 
do non-Germans actually call this 
Grimm Brothers fairy tale? 
The one with the Gingerbread House.
Swedish Dala Horse. However this is 
like25 € per meter, yet how amazing 
would it be to wear this during my 
next Sweden vacation??? Swedish 
Blog Readers: I know you exist. 
Point me into a cheaper direction!
I call it "Let´s slam every folklore 
theme into one fabric plus windmills". 
Sadly I found only one meter avail-
able. Too little to make a dress or skirt!


  1. They are all so amazing, I would spent hours and hours on my sewing machine....

  2. Absolutely brilliant post! You've got amazing sense of sense of style. Have a great day! Fantastic blog by the way....
