The 'Oh Dear' Frock Grosgrain Giveaway CLOSED

May 10, 2010

I'm calling this the 'Oh Dear' frock because that's what Brian said when he walked in the door, yesterday morning. I can't even remember why but I do remember telling him at the time that's that what I would call the dress. And I think it's suiting.

The frock is dark navy blue. The material is thin and finespun. I added a built in nylon liner. I also added a band of opaque navy silk-like material at the bottom.

Pleated ruffled nylon lines the neck and bodice. Four navy fabric covered buttons line the front. An interesting detail are the inverted pleats that surround the front of the bodice. I modeled it after this a cool Modcloth frock I saw a couple weeks ago.

This photo shoot took a lot of muscle on my part. I had to push our bed from one end of the room to the other....by myself! It was a busy morning and Brian was getting ready to go to his mother's house. But you know what? I liked it better there. I tried to convince him to keep it that way but at the end of the day we just ended up pushing it back.

But he did get me this modcloth ring for mother's day (
it's an inside thing). So he's good in my book.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.

Karin (the Mrs.) said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh Dear. Haha. Somehow it's suiting for this dress, although I can't really explain why. It's beautiful though, I love the lace details!

AnaJan said... Best Blogger Tips

I am actually not entering the giveaway, even though I really like your dress. I sew, and I think it would be unfair to steal the dress from those who aren't able to make it themselves. What made me post a comment here was my pure curiosity: why making such a nice dress just to give it away a day later? I've gotta admit it - I was never as generous with my self made garments as you are. I tend to be obsessively attached to the clothes I made, and only give it away in case it doesn't fit me anymore, or in case I do not like it. So, where does your generosity come from?
