Tree Lighting Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

December 10, 2008

tree lightingThe holidays have been so inspiring for me this month. There are just too many countless occasions to wear a special dress. This time of year just brings out the best in formal fashion!

The style of this frock I fell in love with a long time ago. I modeled it after the dresses I discovered at Shabby Apple. So if this is something that you would like for your own closet, you should head on over.

For a small clothing company their prices are surprisingly affordable! Just what I love this time of year:)


I think the most memorable part of this frock would be the popped collar. So retro! The look is so sophisticated yet adorable on my four year-old.

The dress is great for so many sizes because the front opens and closes with a wrap that ties at the front in a lovely bow. I had never made a wrap dress before but it was surprisingly easy to figure out. AND, THE BEST PART, no zipper to sew in.

I used a dark violet material with a little bit of a sheen giving it a holiday feel. I found it at a local fabric store for only $1 a yard!!!! And it was exactly what I was looking for. Doesn't it just make your day when you find something like that?

Hah, I just noticed, if you look close enough you can see me in the photo to the right. And yes, I am wearing my pajamas in the middle of the day.

The inside of the frock has a sweet spotted pattern under the skirt. The bottom half of the frock is gathered and fills out in a flattering A-line shape.

I love the violet flower headband I found for the photos. I bought it at Forever 21....another one of my favorite places to waste my money.

I think the dress would look great paired some silver ballet flats. I just couldn't find any in time for these photos.

I almost want to make another one for Lily to wear on Christmas. I just think the fit is so flattering, even on a four year-old. Perhaps I should just make one for myself. Or perhaps someone should just buy me the Shabby Apple one (hint, hint, family) preferable in "duck beach", size xxs;)

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

Last day for posts is Monday 12/22/08. Winner will be announced Wednesday morning!

As usual, if you would like a chanc
e 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.

Your designs are always breath-taking and this one is no exception! I could so envision my 4 yr old dd in this frock...her hair pulled up in her signature poof on top of her head, collar up...sigh...I think this design would be perfect for her as she tends to be on the slim side and it is hard to find things that look "fitted" around the waist for her...GORGEOUS! (I created a link and blogged about it also...http://scrappinhillbilly.blogspot.com)
Thank you for another great giveaway!
