Outfit #08 Vintage Marimekko

This is one of the gifts I got for Christmas. An apron that Mum sewed out of a vintage Marimekko fabric that she had. The pattern is called Kumiseva and it is so gorgeous I could buy a new piece and sew myself a dress. Only it's kind of expensive (and I have no clue how to sew a dress). However, the pattern designer is a Japanese man with the name Katsuji Wakisaka. He worked for Marimekko 1968-1976 and this particular pattern came to be in 1971. Now there's a history lesson for you. :) Anyways, I love my apron and I'm sure I'll be a better cook for it. :)
