I am Mari-Liis. I am an Estonian, but spent five years of my life in Athens, Greece and the blog was started during this period, thus the title. Back in Estonia now, I decided to keep the title, hopefully it is not too confusing!

The very first dresses I made were for my Barbie dolls at the age of 10 maybe. But don´t get me wrong – these were Barbie clothes with patterns! So at around that age, with the help of my mother, I actually made not only dresses, but tiny morning robes, coats, trousers etc.

After a point where, as a teenager with no patience at all, all the trousers I was trying to make (this time for myself) started twisting weirdly around my legs, there came a long break from any sewing, until recently.  And this time the obsession is dresses. Occasionally I make other garments as well, but dresses surely are my favorite items to make and naturally, to wear.

I hope you enjoy my blog!

    1. Hey and thanks for commenting! I am afraid I cant recall the name of that shop. And it could easily have been something pretty plain, like “Fabrics” 🙂 Sorry I cannot help you!
