Early Evening Gown GIVEAWAY!!!!!!! CLOSED.

July 9, 2008

This dress reminded me of early twilight. Perhaps it was because I thought it looked like a mix between a day dress and a night gown. I used a very pale pink material reminiscent of early evening. And delicate ruffled straps that begin at the underarm. I added a wide ruffled trim at the bottom and voila....she's ready for the day/night.








Last day for posts is Monday. Winner will be announced Wednesday morning!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win this gown just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.




Also if you have been having trouble with my free daily pattern please keep trying to use it. I had been working on some kinks and I think I have worked through them for the most part.

*UPDATE* 7/10/08 I have signed up with a new file host for the daily pattern pdfs. I will keep the retro bathing suit up for another day for those who thought they might like it. If you have a problem please let me know. Thanks.

This dress just begs to be worn to an evening summer wedding or outdoor concert (not that we have either of them this summer but then again the dress probably won't fit rachel until next year anyway!)

Scrapbookmama said... Best Blogger Tips

OH my gosh... this dress reminds me of a dress my nana made me when I was little it was my princess dress(or so I use to say) but I wore it all over the place (I lived in Dominican Republic and my nana would make most of my clothes) I had a little garden and I would always wear it while I picked veggies.. I think she would wash that dress everyday! *SIGH* thank you for letting me remember those sweet memories...:)Oh I could so see my DD in this dress although I know I would probably tear up cause I'm such a mush! LOL :)
