Fields of Gold Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

August 1, 2008

centered darkenedI wanted to do a dress like this sometime before summer ended. The look reminded me of lazy summer afternoons from when I was little. Yes, I grew up about five minutes from where this photo was taken. I had originally wanted to find a wheat field to take these photos in. Obviously, I lived fairly close to some pretty rural areas. However, I was disappointed to find that those areas are now either new houses or fenced off. Booo!!!! I was, however, lucky to find the
place where I took these. It was private enough that I didn't feel conspicuous and didn't have any urban clutter in the
far background.

I bought this fabric on my trip to Philadelphia a while back and finally found a use for it! It's a gauzy, buttery yellow, swiss dot material and I thought it would fit the mood of this frock.

This dress came out a tad too see-through as you can see below. If you were to wear this outside of your house I'd recommend wearing a slip of some sort. I searched high and low for one before we left to take this photo but, as luck would have it, I don't seem to own one. What does that say about me?

It fell down far below Lily's knees....so I would say that it would fit a 3T-5T. More or less, depending on your child. Lily is 37" tall, if that helps.

Last day for posts is Wednesday 8/6/08. Winner will be announced Friday morning!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win this dress 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.

I also had a lot of people request a tutorial for the previous popcorn bloomer and blouse trim. It was a fairly simple procedure so please look for that in the near future. I am debating as to how to post it. It might be seen in a new right button.
Speaking of right buttons, Photobucket SUCKS! If you happened upon my site yesterday afternoon you would have found a lot of blank photos with a suggestion to "upgrade to photobucket pro". Well, in my desperation, I did.

I sat at my computer waiting for their pages to process, I was patient when their payment system loaded error after error, I paid for three months of their pro addition, BUT what I was not ready for, was getting nothing in return. I am still listed as a "free" member although I have $12 less dollars in my checking account and I WILL be requesting...no demanding...a refund AND taking my photos elsewhere. Somewhere more....flickr. Thanks for enduring my rant and hope you can take away something from my troubles.

Oh yeah, and I'm trying out a new font. What do you think?

Lilith Silvermane said... Best Blogger Tips

You never cease to amaze me! I love what you do, and I look forward to visiting your blog every day, just to see what people are saying about you!

Cute dress... wanna make one for me :)

anna w said... Best Blogger Tips

Soooooo sweet! My little gal won't likely be big enough to wear it for another year or two, but I love it love it love it!

I'm very sorry about the photo problems. Technical difficulties like that are just maddening. For what it's worth, I use Flickr, and it's always been quite painless. Good luck!

traci said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the dress, but it's the color I love the most. I also love that you found somewhere fun to take the photos that doesn't have suburban life all about!

anna w said... Best Blogger Tips

One more thing - what pattern did you use for this dress? Or if you invented it yourself, is there any chance you could do a post with tips for inventing patterns?

I've just begun dabbling in sewing again after several years of sewing machine neglect (poor thing - I think it will recover though), and this is just the look I've been wanting in a little dress for my 7mo girlie. knowing me I prob won't get around to actually making it until next summer, but it's always nice to have ideas like that stashed away :)

Thanks for the fab website!

Meichelle said... Best Blogger Tips

I feel like today may be my lucky day!! (Crossing my fingers!!)

Erica said... Best Blogger Tips

You are so talented! Love the yellow!

Mel said... Best Blogger Tips

Very nice. I can sympathize the lack of nice fields... it's that way where I grew up too. I have a vintage piece of yellow dot like that... though I'd probably be lucky to squeeze a cute little top out of it.
Nice job once again.
(Please don't enter me in the drawing. I don't know if I could wait that long for dd to grow into it.)

Thanks for visiting me. That crock was actually bought in England and has now migrated to the other island since it picked up too much grease near the cooktop.

I love this little dress and I even have a granddaughter who lives in hot hot Phoenix who could wear it. I love the yellow, and good work with the photos to enhance it.
