I don’ t know Maarika in person but I think she’s an extremely sweet person. Her kids always seem so happy. Always laughing on pictures, showing her amazing creations. Whenever I ask her if she feels like participating in a tour, she’s enthusiastic. Always willing to try my new patterns and to inspire people. I love the way she added piping to her Nina skirt on both the waistband, the pockets and the side seam. You can never use too much piping, can you? I love it! More at Liivi & Liivi!
