Another giveaway to brighten your day. I've been on a sewing roll. The caplet winner will be announced in just two days!! So be sure to see if you won! I have to say that I am OVERWHELMED by the positive feedback and responses to the raffle. I really did not have any idea that so many people liked my work. I read EVERY single one of your comments and EVERY single one of your posts. I get giddy when I notice that someone else has entered and am constantly showing the comments and posts to Brian who by now has probably grown sick of my excitement. As before, if you want to be included in the giveaway just click
on the "create a link" link at the bottom of the post to make a link on your blog. If you don't use blogger just create a link as you would and I will be able to detect it in Technorati. If you have any questions just leave me a comment and I will answer it or refer to the previous posts for more info.
LAST DAY FOR ICE CREAM SOCIAL POSTS WILL BE MONDAY! WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED WEDNESDAY MORNING!
The dress reminded me of something one might wear to a formal party....a "social" you might say. While the bright colors and bold pattern reminded me of something in an ice cream shoppe. I was sad that this would be the only time Lily would get to wear it. But, you know, as long as I have some sort of documentation of her in the dress I'm fine with giving it away.
I made the skirt by combining three inverted pleats on each side. I then pleated a large green cloth bow and sewed it into the dress. It was made to fit Lily but she is pretty small for a four-year-old. I'd say it could fit girls 2-4.
AND IF THE WINNING BLOG ALSO LEAVES A COMMENT I WILL THROW IN THE MATCHING HAIR BOWS (below).
My favorite part about this dress was the polka dot material that I bought while visiting Brian's sisters in Philadelphia on "fabric row". I bought it in a very tiny overpacked mom'n'pop shop that smelled like old people and fabric. Lily's favorite part about this dress....the icecream.
I know I've said this before but after reading your comments I only wish I had more time to make more than one (even for myself). It makes me sad to disappoint all those girls out there (and I mean you, moms:) I have managed to make three giveaways this week! I'm so proud of myself. Part of the process includes planning and carrying out the photo so it takes about 2-3 days for me. Ugh, not to mention I just came down with bronchitits.....again. I really need to see an ear, nose and throat specialist. It's literally the 5th or 6th time this year.
