The Reporter Frock Grosgrain Giveaway

July 21, 2010

Last week I was inspired to do a bathing suit. I haven't done one since I made one for Lily nearly two years ago. So I bought some material on ebay and waited, and waited and waited. Still no material. So last minute I threw together this dress on Saturday.
Now, I've been liking the black and white with olive green so doing this as a faux skirt and top dress seemed perfect. I thought this looked like something a reporter from the 50s or a secretary from Mad Men would wear, though maybe a little less short. I've been looking at too many Modcloth frocks lately. They are ALL SHORT.

Hopefully the bathing suit can be up next week....if I ever get the fabric.
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.

Holly Storm said... Best Blogger Tips

Fantastic! I am loving the color combination and especially the black and white print. I am a sucker for cool geometrics. They go so well together and the pleats at on the top balance this out well and bring some attention to the top. You are so talented! How about a post or two on your technique? Do you envision, then draft a pattern, or do you drape? If so, do you do the whole muslin, pattern, toile thing? Thanks!
