Shenandoah Costume GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

October 10, 2008

shenandoah costumeI don't know what it is about them, but I love to sew dresses. I guess that's why I look forward to Halloween so much. I finally have an excuse to go 'all out'. I know, I know, dresses aren't the only Halloween costumes out there....they're just my favorite! And this giveaway was no exception!

I made this early enough so that the winner will get it by Halloween. But honestly, I don't know 'how' I'm going to pack this thing, it's just HUGE! Knowing that I would be giving this away was a little difficult to keep that in mind while sewing it. But I was just so pleased with the final look, it was really worth it! Although, I know it will break my heart to send it off when the time comes but I'm hoping it will go towards someone who could really use it and love it!

The time period of this this costume is set in the 1800s somewhere around the civil war- hence the Shenandoah reference. I used a light olive green taffeta material for the dress. To billow out the bottom the skirt is tiered and I added a crinoline slip. I added black braided trim all around the edges of the skirts and around the sleeves as well as a contrasting white lace trim around the wide pilgrim collar and bodice.

But what I think makes this so great for Halloween is that the sleeves and skirt are long enough so that you can wear a sweater and jeans in case the temperature drops for the big night (which always seems to happen here in Pennsylvania).
The white billowy undershirt is sewn into the dress and the oversleeves are sewn with a wide tapered cut allowing tons of room.

I also curled Lily's hair in large ringlets as any stylish southern belle might do and pulled it into a side ponytail.

If I had more time I would have made a matching velvet bag that could substitute as a Halloween treat bag. Perhaps the winner could try their hand at making one. I don't think it would be too difficult.

I would say the costume would fit a 3T-4T, depending on your child.

AND BE SURE TO CHECK BACK SOON, MORE COSTUME GIVEAWAYS TO COME!

Last day for posts is Wednesday 10/15/08. Winner will be announced Friday morning!

When I opened this page with this giveaway, Olivia let out a big "WOW!" She only has a vocabulary of 20 words so this was pretty exciting to her. She doesn't have a Halloween costume either so if we win that would be AWESOME . WOW!

MrsMac said... Best Blogger Tips

That is absolutely beautiful!! I really admire you for the time you spend, not only sewing these beautiful outfits, but also finding the perfect locations to photograph your daughters. How do you find such appropriate and amazing places?? I have a small question, when you put the pictures of the dress in your post, how do you cut around the image?

This dress is exquisite!
I have four little daughters, and every time I come to your blog, I'm overwhelmed by your talent. My fabric is squirreled away, and tho' I've all sorts of ideas for snipping and sewing, I rarely make time (plus, my abilities are pretty dismal). Even so, your creations inspire pipe dreams!

I blogged about your giveaway at

Ok, I know I say that everytime I enter BUT my daughter still doesn't have a costume (it is hard ot pick one because she doesn't want anything over her face) This would be PERFECT! She wants to be a princess (because of the big puffy dresses) and I want her to be something "different" so this would be the perfect compromise!!! :)

Just when I thought "it doesn't get any better than this!"
Looking back, it HAS gotten better so I suppose you are not only pumping out gorgeous designs, you have the public in a tizzy AND you're fine tuning your skills.
Amazing. People aren't even this crazy over big name designers!

WOW!!!! My 3-year-old twin girls will have a blast sharing this dress, and they'll call it their "princess dress" and I'll make them black velvet bags, and take hundreds of pictures of them and I can't wait to see it in person and drool all over it! (at least, that's what I would say if I won!)

I love the green. It's eye popping. Great job! I was inspired by you. I made Bailey's costume. I couldn't find a Butterfly costume that was cute and cheap. And the one I ordered was HORRIBLE. So I made a tutu, and added wings, a pink shirt and a wand. She's a butterfly princess. She won't stop twirling. She loves dresses. Anyway, I never thought I would be able to make it. Thank you so much for inspiring me !!!! You are amazing!!

Your Outstanding use of colour and photography go hand in hand with these wonderful costumes you make..

Wow, my friend linked to this giveway and I decided to check it out. Wow, I'm so glad I did. The dress is amazing, but I also love your pictures. You have a great artistic eye. Thanks for sharing that talent with us. I feel inspired. I'm so bummed that I missed out on the red riding hood jacket. I was telling my daughter that I wanted one for myself. It would be so fun. But it definitely looks way cute on a little girl.

I linked to you from my blog, hope it shows up.

Anja said... Best Blogger Tips

Amazing. You are amazing, the dress is amazing and I would be amazed if this costume comes to my house.

I linked to you from my blog, hope it shows up.

Clevelandgirlie said... Best Blogger Tips

Making these beautiful dresses, photographing your beautiful children in them and THEN giving them away - is such an inspiring act of generosity. As an artist it must fill your heart to know the impact this selflessness is having. Bravo chica!

I stumbled on your blog and how glad am I? DH worked at a Federal Park that did reenactments once a year from the year 1867. I have wanted to make outfits for my 3 girls but never did. Maybe I will win this one! And I made a link. Very easy. thanks.

Natalie said... Best Blogger Tips

The Internet and bloggers never cease to amaze me, and you top them all! This is such a beautiful little dress. You have me wishing I could see my own little 3T proudly wearing it. For certain I will be exploring your posts and admiring your other sewing creations, which are no doubt awesome.
