picture heavy/i got my hat!


So, finally, graduation pictures! A friend of mine was taking pictures which is really lucky as otherwise I don't think we would have that many.. These are a few of my favourites, though it was hard to find pictures without people's faces. (I never want to ask if someone doesn't fancy getting their picture on the internet..) I still need to find a good picture to be my 'thank you' card and get that sorted. After that it'll all be over:-)

I finished my dress just a day or two before the graduation and was rather frustrated by it. I didn't quite feel like it turned out as I wanted to and was ready to go and buy the first dress that came my way. It's a tad too wide for me (which I think doesn't show that much?) and in the end I didn't have the time to adjust it more. However, I'm glad I finished this one, and it doesn't look that bad. Nobody will know what I meant it to look like, so it's all good! And a self-made dress is always better than a bought one, I feel. On another note, isn't mama's national costume lovely? I really like the traditional look of these Finnish dresses and wish I had one too!
