GROSGRAIN MINI STORE OPENING NOVEMBER 6!!!! AND BIG PREVIEW GIVEAWAY!!!!

October 24, 2008

reversible bird seed skirtI must admit, I was OVERWHELMED by the response Grosgrain has gotten over the past couple days. I was so thrilled that so many people loved the Marie Therese gown. Never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed it. I read each and every one of the comments and emails. I was floating on air at my MOPS 'Moms Night Out' and couldn't help but tell all my family members to check it out. The work was DEFINITELY worth the reward thanks to all of you!

I know that the last post is a tough act to follow, but I'm here today to announce something else that I am so
nervous and excited about. Oh, my heart is accelerating just typing this. You all have left me such wonderful comments and suggestions, so I've decided to try my hand at one of them. Grosgrain will be opening an online store. Just a few pieces. If things go well, I might try to add a couple more things depending on how much time I will have available. You will be able to find the link to the store here on the front page of this blog November 6th....barring any setbacks.

And don't worry, I'll always be offering giveaways regardless of how the store does. It's how this blog began and I don't want to change anything about that. I'll just be busy, busy, busy.

Thankfully for you, I will not be sewing these pieces. Of course, they are Grosgrain designs but I am leaving the stitching to a local clothing manufacturing company whose handiwork will by far surpass mine.

You can see a preview of what I will be offering here in this post! These are not the exact pieces that will be offered in the store but rather the prototypes that I have sewn. Those who have been with Grosgrain for a couple months might recognize it as the reversible bird seed skirt! Now ALSO in blue, red and the original green. To celebrate the upcoming opening, this giveaway will include ALL THREE REVERSIBLE SKIRTS as well as ALL THREE OF THE REVERSIBLE SHIRTS! That could be twelve outfits!


reversible bird seed skirt

For those of you new to the blog, the skirt is perfect for those walks in the park. What little girl doesn't love to feed the ducks? But how many times has she been ill-prepared when encountering a flock? With this sweet skirt she can carry a handful of seeds in her pocket just in case she meets a group of hungry geese or pigeons on the street.





reversible bird seed skirt

When I saw this Alexander Henry print I immediately asked for a yard. After seeing
the print of the large bird feeding on the seeds, the wheels in my head started spinning. I wanted to make a skirt with a tiny pocket on the side, large enough to carry a handful of birdseed.

As you can see, the reverse side is a complementary solid color with a bird print pocket.

Let me tell you about the shirts. They are thermal long john material and better still, REVERSIBLE TOO! One s
ide compliments the bird print the other side compliments the solid color. Or vice versa. One outfit put together could equal four! Neat. I hope you like:)

Oh yes! One more thing! If the winning blog leaves a comment I will include the matching red, green and brown socks. NEW ONES, of course, still attached to the store cardboard. Not the yucky leaf covered ones Lily is wearing:)

Official opening will hopefully occur in two weeks. All of the items you see here will be offered in the store in various sizes and colors
. The skirts and shirts offered in this giveaway should fit a 2T-4T.

Last day for posts is Wednesday 10/29/08. Winner will be announced Friday morning!

And be sure to stop by again. I'll be posting more costumes and giveaways in the days and weeks to come! And don't worry, I'll always be offering giveaways regardless of how the store does. It's how this blog began and I don't want to change anything about that. I'll just be busy, busy, busy.

As usual, if you would like a chanc
e to win these outfits 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.

Congratulations on the store too, I am sure it will do awesome, you have great style!

My four year old twin grand children would love these clothes. the little girl would adore the skirts with the pockets and mom would love that they are reveriable. The boy could wear the tops and share them with his sister of course. If I won the set there would be more than enough for both. I"ll keep coming back.

I know you have two girls and thereby fashion your peices accordingly. But do you have any designs for little boys? It would be so exciting to see you put your talent behind fashioning some boy pieces. I bet they would be out of this world! (We are adopting two little boys soon...that is why I ask).
But, I am so excited about your store opening!!! I have been telling everyone about you!

Heather from Marysville, WA said... Best Blogger Tips

Your stuff is so adorable. Beyond words, really. I don't check back regulary since I don't have a blog so I can't win, but I just about fell off my chair when I saw that Marie Therese gown. My palms started to sweat as I went to start my own blog, but alas, I am a day too late. I could cry. That dress was made for my darling 3T daughter. And I never even got to enter. I do tell all my friends, blog or not, though. You're just too much to be kept a secret! I guess I will have to start a blog for next time. Thanks for the inspiration!

Your skirts and shirts are soooo cute!!! They are perfect for someone like me who plans to only dress daughters in skirts and long sleeves--and things like that are SO VERY difficult to find. Thanks!

Elana Kahn said... Best Blogger Tips

I actually have a question--do links back to your blog posts count for the giveaways if they're in the sidebar of someone's blog? (Like in a blog list) Thanks!
