Ice Cream Social Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

July 2, 2008

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.

I love the polka dots!!!What a gorgeous little dress, you've outdone yourself again.

So sorry to hear about the Bronchitis. You may need the nose surgery that my husband had, where they basically roto rooted his septum because of recurring sinus infections / bronchitis.

Anyway, I hope you're feeling better soon, and I hope I win this grgeous dress!!!

Eva said... Best Blogger Tips

Honestly, you have got to stop or I'll have to re-name my blog. Something like "free clothes please" ought to do.
Love the dots, love the green, sorry about the bronchitis.

Barbara said... Best Blogger Tips

I am a great Grammy that just loves what you do. My granddaughter is the one that put me onto your web page. If I would win I would be sure that she would be the recipent. She has 2 precious little girls and the oldest one would fall in love with one of you gorgeous little dresses. If only I could sew!

outsidetheblue said... Best Blogger Tips

kim said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm so excited for you and the overwhelming response to your giveaways! You're creations are so cute, you need to start an Etsy shop and make some money instead of just giving it away! :) Hope you feel better soon!

Kellie said... Best Blogger Tips

That green bow is to die for!!! Who doesn't love polka dots & ice cream? Did I ever mention that if my Bryce{5} was to be a girl he would have been Lily?
You sure are on a roll...these giveaways are super generous of you. Thanks so much! Feel better soon =)

Rachelmp said... Best Blogger Tips

Your dress is just beautiful! I have a 2 year old daughter who shares my love for polka dots, and as the youngest with 3 big brothers I love to dress her in such pretty clothes!

Jackie said... Best Blogger Tips

Oooohhh.... my favourite of all your pieces so far (although they're all lovely of course). Wish there was somewhere in Singapore to buy such adorable dresses.

You shouldn't be surprised by the responses you're getting as your work is outstanding. My little one is standing next to me right now pointing at the ice cream dress going "mine, mine, mine", although of course it could be the ice cream itself that she's after!

Kathleen @ Katydid & Kid said... Best Blogger Tips

That is the most darling dress! I sooo wish I had a little girl right now instead of a little boy! I would love to win this for my goddaughter, who would look so sweet in it. You have got some great talent! My sewing skills are passable, but I couldn't do this. PS. I love going to fabric row when I'm in Philly (I live about an hour and a half away).

Cuddle Cottage said... Best Blogger Tips

I cannot resist these little pretties! I really don't understand how you can bear to part with them . . . but, as you can see, there are lots of us willing to take such adorable stuff off your hands! I tried again to do the link thing and I really thought I had it this time, but I failed:( So here is my post with a link back to your site:

I can't believe you're doing 3 giveaways this week!!! I'm not entering this one though... My daughter's 6 and there's no way we could get that dress into the house without her wanting to wear it 24/7! It's beautiful! I hope you're able to feel better by this weekend!

Beth and Jared said... Best Blogger Tips

I've been reading your blog for a few weeks and it blows me away every time you post a new picture of your latest creation. I love your style, classic yet modern, it inspires me! Thanks for starting the giveaways! I hope I can win one for one of my girls (3 and 4 years old)! Take Care!

Anyway, here's to hoping your Lily's dress becomes my Lily's dress!

tyketto said... Best Blogger Tips

This dress is fabulous. I wish I could have one for me. My 3-year-old would love to actually get something that is only for her.

You are totally inspiring me to sew more and actually give some stuff away. Your clothes & photos & blog are all amazing. And as long as Brian is still nodding his head when you show him posts from all the random people on the internet then all is good. I would hope my husband would do the same.

royaloaker said... Best Blogger Tips

Ok. I get all giddy when I see your stuff. You are Wonder Woman in the sewing/idea department, Kathleen. Lily is so cute. Is she wearing ballet slippers? I was in Payless the other day, and I almost bought a pair cuz it's so hard to find cute PLAIN shoes.

Anywho, good luck to me. :) Happy 4th and thanks for sharing your wonderful creations. xo

Sonia said... Best Blogger Tips

That dress is way cute! I am going to have to check out what else you make. My daughter would look so cute in it, the only problem would be what her twin brother would wear to match. I picture a little bow tie or something although I imagine he would not like that.

Beautiful doesn't describe it right. Wow!! This brings back memories of my Mom-she was an awesome seamstress who sewed my wedding gown, her own formal dress and a bridesmaid's dress and flower girl's. She used to make patterns on brown paper bags or newspaper.

Hello, My first experiment with sewing was in High School Home Ec.!
We were sewing a simple skirt with dart. I had sewn one of my darts inside out. I swear I spent a week tearing out that dart. I can't even sew a button on very well. Your
"Social Frock" is too adorable. Please enter my name in your delightful giveaway drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

I wish I could sew if it would mean I could make adorable outfits like that for my kiddos. I'm new to your blog, and I'm sad I've missed so many giveaways! I'll be back...

Simply AMAZING! Can you make one in mama size too?? Baby Girl would be polka-dotting all around town in this... and when she grew out of it, I'd have a doll made to wear it and decorate to match :) It's just too sweet!
Hope you can capture my blog post:

Christy said... Best Blogger Tips

I agree! I would SO wear a dress like this. It wouldn't look nearly as cute, but I love everything about it.

designdreamer said... Best Blogger Tips

I don't know if you ever go BACK to look at comments on your posts, but I just found your blog, and HAD to go back to the beginning. First let me tell you how IMPRESSED I am by your complete GENEROUSITY! and CREATIVITY! and . . . I don't know I'm speechless here. Most people in your place would want AT LEAST the postage to be paid. And You're going to send things to people in other countries to boot?!?

Although I've been sewing myself probably longer than you've been ALIVE!!!, I love your fearless attitude. Know that I would love to "win" one of your garments, but I no longer have a child small enough to wear any of them anyways. But I DO have one question since I don't have a blog myself, how does one (or doesn't one?) have a chance if they don't have a blog themselves?
Perhaps that was you intention, but I've got to think there are a lot of young moms out there that don't have blogs.
I initially "found" you blog before church this morning, and I couldn't help thinking of you thru out the service. You are definitely "paying it forward". God Bless you!

jipie said... Best Blogger Tips

Janice Vandyk said... Best Blogger Tips
