'It's My Party' Skirt GROSGRAIN GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

December 15, 2009

I wanted to make a really girly skirt. Originally I intended this to be for an adult and wanted to sew in a white top. I still might try this out later.


But sometimes I like to take ideas that I think might look good on an adult and model it on a child. There is a very limited selection of modern looking clothing for kids. I'm guessing its because there isn't as much demand.


This is a dark grey wool skirt that is cinched at just below the top with cased elastic. I like the way the top of the skirt flares out. It resembles the look of the Lawn Frock, however, the Lawn frock had a cleaner pleated look. This is simply gathered which also has its own appeal.


I added a blue denim striped seersucker belt and tied it in a bow to the side of the skirt. Since this is a wool skirt, it can be appropriate for winter.


I liked the blue striped belt and pink top paired together with the gray wool. It has a very January look. All that's missing is a large round 3' pink balloon.


Many of you said that you would like to enter more giveaways, but have various issues with linking. Of course, I want anyone that is interested in entering a giveaway to be able to do so.
Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways:

1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site)

2) By leaving a comment without a link or

3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries which will better your chances of winning). Find more info under the FAQ page.



If you are leaving a link just use the 'create a link' at the bottom of this post or simply creating a post on your blog and including this link.
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.

What a great skirt! I wish there was more modern, better designed clothing for children out there. I much prefer to dress my daughter in things I would like to where than in the "baby" clothes that's much more widely available.
