I 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 theI 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.
place where I took these. It was private enough that I didn't feel conspicuous and didn't have any urban clutter in the
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?
