Sugar Cookie Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

December 19, 2008

What's your favorite holiday past time? One of ours includes baking. Lily loves to help pour the sugar, scoop the dough and of course eat the rewards. This frock is *just right* for those little helpers who look forward to Christmas, not just for the toys but the moments with Mommy in the kitchen.

The outfit is made up of two parts. The white cotton dress underneath is gathered at the top with a thin collar and puff sleeves. Yellow buttons line the front. The skirt is flattering in an a-line shape.

This dress, like the one before is so versatile since the fit is loose and gathered by the ties in the back.

The apron was modeled after the patterns of the 50s. I used a retro material and paired it with a burnt orange trim.
I think I want one in an adult size:)

The shape reminds me of an upsidedown tulip.

Lily's little helper in the photos is the little Lela doll courtesy of Rubyellen from Cakies. She has added the most adorable dolls to her shop. Soft and sweet and happy to help you bake cookies to eat:)



The Lela doll in the photos is included in the giveaway! You should enter for her alone! I think she would be a perfect post-Christmas surprise.

Oh I just had a thought, wouldn't it have been adorable to have Lela peeping out of the door holding a shaker of salt? Ugh. I always think of these things a little to late.

That's our antique refrigerator. No, it doesn't work any longer. But it does hold telephone and cookbooks really well! And occasionally functions as a junk closet when guests suddenly stop by.

I purchased the fabric at a tiny, hidden basement store in Amish Country. I actually passed a horse and buggy on my way there. While I perused the isles I could hear women behind the counter speaking heavy Dutch. It's pretty far for me to travel but it sells hard to find remnants like Amy Butler and Henry Alexander.

I must mention that this place, I would never had discovered if not for my new friend Chelia who I met through this blog! Speaking of aprons she sells them and more in her own etsy shop!
Metals and Thread. She has a cute little polka dot dress that I love in there now.


My favorite touch was the matching scarf. Looks totally retro!


And yes, I know those aren't sugar cookies. But all we had were chocolate chip. Hopefully you will forgive me:)

I would say that this dress would fit a 3T-5T:)

Last day for posts is Wednesday 12/31/08. Winner will be announced Friday!




If the winning blog also leaves a comment I will include the matching head scarf.


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.

Sweet Somethings by Lois said... Best Blogger Tips

Talk about getting in just under the wire..Whew!
I found your blog through a blog thorugh a blog and I am glad I did!
I live in Canada so I don't know if I am eligible or not to win. I hope I am because the outfit is wonderful! My little Cutie-Patootie loves to make cookies with my hubby (her Papa). He has her every Friday and the two of them love to cook up a storm. Cookies are a wonderful treat to come home to after a hard day at work even if the icing tends to be three inches thick in some places...LOL.
Anyway right now she uses one of my aprons tied up under her armpits. It works but this would be better.
Thanks for sharing. I will be back to visit again.

Hello darling grograin girl. I have stalked your blog for a few months now and am honestly AMAZED. First for such tailored and speedy work (when do you sleep?) and second, that you actually give it away.

I am in love with sugar cookie frock. Have you already shared it? (I know that is is January and no longer 2008).

I am featuring this on my craft blog right now (that is how this works right?).

Please pick me.
Heidi
