Hi everyone! I’m Anna from Malmikon palmikot and I am new to the vintage sewing scene. I started collecting and sewing vintage garnments only this year and have learned so much already! I’m so exited to get to join this community! I come from Finland where the sewing community hasn’t really found its way to the blogosphere yet, so how lucky was I to find a whole community of sewists waiting! The name of my blog is in Finnish, although I blog in English. The name Malmikon palmikot means Malmikko’s braids or Malmikko’s cables, since the word palmikko refers to both braids and cableknitting. Malmikko is an old family name and a way for me to salute my granny and her roots.

I’ve mostly sewn dresses and skirts so far, but my goal is to have a pair of trousers, a jacket and an evening gown in my closet by the end of the year, and more dresses of  course!
