Finnish Girl Matryoshka


I've had a couple of people request a Finnish Girl Matryoshka. After much research I was having a difficult time deciding which ethnicity to portray first, until Jill of Barrel of Monkeys was kind enough to point me in a direction. She suggested Kansallispuku style! So this is my version of a Finnish Girl, Kansallispuku style Matryoshka! How do you like the wind in her hair and hair ribbons? I'm really enjoying it! Can you tell? Thank you for the suggestion Jill! Everyone please keep the suggestions coming and if you know of examples of traditional dress that really helps! :)

I think my Polish, Finnish, and Dutch Matryoshkas would look splendid displayed together.
