Roosters-N-Rickrack Pinafore GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

June 29, 2008

Okay, don't expect this sort of stamina every week but I have ANOTHER GIVEAWAY courtesy of a late night Saturday with Comedy Central's airing of Better Off Dead. This came out so 'as I had envisioned' that it breaks my heart to part with it but for you dear readers I will. It is copied from a dress I had seen in Small Magazine I believe the designer was Misha Lulu. I did the embroidery myself. It has a red pompom trim, applique roosters and chicks feeding across the bottom. For the material, I used a soft white Egyptian cotton. It came out quite playful and sweet. I don't know what my obsession is with rickrack lately but I think it really brings out the party in a dress. I want to cover my car, my living room, my life in it. But what I'm REALLY excited about are the custom labels I have made for the clothes (see last image). I've sewn them into the caplet and now this dress. For me, it takes the clothing to a whole new level. This dress would fit a child 2-4. However, I left a bit extra in the straps that can be taken out if you wanted to use it for a child older than four. It might be a little big for a two-year-old. I can't really be sure.

Just as before....if you would like to win this little diddy just link to this post. If you use blogger just click on
the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. All the information is already prefilled. If you do not use blogger you can still enter. Just post a link on your blog to this post as you normally would and I will be able to
detect it in Technorati. If you have any questions please just leave me a comment and I will respond in this post.

PINAFORE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED NEXT MONDAY MORNING. LAST DAY FOR POSTING IS FRIDAY.

Scroll down to end of post for link.




If the winning blogger posts a comment I will also throw in the matching red polka dot barretts.

Winner please email me at mytumtumtree@gmail.com
so I can get your name and address.

And don't forget....last day for the caplet giveaway is Wednesday. Winner to be announced Friday morning. I thought it would be the cutest thing to go with this dress, right? And yes....the wall really was *that* blue.
