A couple weeks ago I visited etsy's front page and found a wonderful seller with FABUOUS style...all vintage and fun. Imagine my delight when she agreed to do a giveaway for Grosgrain- A custom dress made to fit the lucky winner!
Heather of Loose Teeth makes amazing pieces like this plaidwaist shirt dress, this polka dot halter, and this red check romper. If you've ever enjoyed pinup calendars and sexy film noir you MUST check out her store.
The dress featured in this post will be custom fitted and given to the lucky winner. It is made from 100% cotton red, blue yellow and white plaid seersucker with 100% cotton eyelet lace underskirt.
The underskirt is attached at the waistline and really fills out the skirt nicely. It has lace detail around the bottom edge of the seek sucker, the back and top edges of the bodice and two bows where the spaghetti straps attach in the front.
The gathered bust line is lined and can be worn with or without a bra. Heather will make it to size for the winner. It's super comfortable and ultra sweet looking.
Heather is no novice to sewing and has been sewing since she was 10. Two years ago she learned to fully design her own pieces. Since then it's been full steam ahead.
She loves to sew a challenging design and loves retro aesthetics.
Says Heather, "I love love love dresses! I'm also nuts for Halloween costumes, burlesque outfits and anything with ruffles and fringe on it."
"I'm freaking out on vintage style dresses right now so you will see a lot of those. I'm working on some original dresigns to be made in your size, so watch for those."
"I love a challenge. If you have a costume idea or retro inspired special engagement gown that you have always wanted, share it with me and I’ll see if I can construct it for you."
Aside from her passion for sewing she also loves to make costumes and even sculpt and pour her own latex masks and props.
