The Partly Sunny Frock in Valentine Swiss Dot GIVEAWAY

February 8, 2013

I named this the 'Partly Sunny' Frock because the dress is just kind of bright and fun and whimsical but the collar reminded me of clouds. Hence 'Partly' sunny;-P
Since Valentine's Day coming up soon, this giveaway will be quick so you can get it in time for the big day. This giveaway will end this SUNDAY, the 10th. So please enter now. To enter either  PIN THIS POSTsubscribe to my RSS feed, "like" my Facebook page, Instagram page or Pinterest page. Then tell me what you did in the comments below.

The dress is made with Valentine's red swiss dot fabric for the body, sheer white chiffon for the yoke and red and white piping for the collar and waist. The belt doesn't come with the dress. It's mine;-) Although I made the dress with the white piping at the waist so the belt is not necessary. But if you like it, you can buy it at Forever 21. It's ONLY $4.80. Seriously can't beat that. It doesn't look like the mint color is online anymore (just black, pink and yellow) but if you go in the store it might be there. I bought mine a few weeks ago. But here are some good mint Forever 21 belts online that you could get instead. Perforated Heart Waist Belt. Skinny Waist Belt. Patent Waist Belt.

I made two so I'll be wearing this one on Valentine's Day with Brian. I'm excited. I have a gift I'm hoping I get. Fingers crossed.

On the Monday after the winner is announced, I will post the pattern. It's such an easy piece. The pattern will ONLY be available in base size 8. It's fitted but I still have some wiggle room and I'm currently waist 26.5", hips 35", bust 33". I'm so sorry I don't have the extra time to grade this pattern and test it out but here is a good tutorial about grading up sizes if this is too small for you. In the future I might try grading if I can perhaps find a good grader to hire for freelance. If so, if any of you might be interested in being pattern testers let me know.
