Make Believe Frock GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

September 10, 2008

wandering waifI really debated what prop to use with this frock. Down the street there is a tiny playhouse with cut out hearts. The downtown state museum has a make believe tree with velcro felt apples. And then there was the box our tv came in. I was a heartbeat away from taking a trip downtown but read online that they closed at 3pm. Bummer. We could have walked to the playhouse but I thought the box castle would look more....make believe. I really didn't know what I was getting into. Two hours later and stumbling from low blood sugar, this is what I came up with.
The dress is made of a soft aqua knit material. What is up with me and knits lately? They are just so soft. Lily asked if she could wear the dress after she was finished trying it on, which almost never happens. I wanted it to look like a sort of modern 'Alice in Wonderland'. I gathered the scoop neckline and added a scalloped white trim. It's a somewhat simple dress but was surprisingly difficult to cut. But take a look at the best part....

The most adorable felt crown you've ever seen! I cannot take credit for this little gem. It was given to me by Rubyellen of Cakies. She has the softest, sweetest, most stylish felt accessories for children. Her crowns are to DIE FOR! Her newest addition and my FAVORITE is her Beautiful Mum crown. She has her etsy store stocked with accessories for girls AND boys! She also sells clips and was nice enough to send me two. I was so proud to put one on Lily and one on Molly for Brian's birthday. They are just the cutest felt flowers you've ever seen. Better still, they never fell out of Molly's hair. Now, that's a feat! The crown is included in the giveaway.

Lily was so excited about crawling through the little draw bridge opening. Unfortunately, the paint rubbed off onto everything so I had to let her in through an opening in the back, which was sort of disappointing. But judging from the photos, she's ready to kiss that frog and find her prince.

I would say this would fit a 3T-4T.
Last day for posts is Monday 9/15/08. Winner will be announced Wednesday morning!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win this frock just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. 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.
Now, what to do with this giant cardboard castle?

What a precious dress for a princess!
And I love the crown too.

There's a favorite book of ours that I bet Molly would love. It's a Henry and Mudge book, all about making a castle out of a refrigerator box. I can't think of the name, but if you googled it, I bet it would pop up.

I love the post. What a treat!

Rebecca Ramsey said... Best Blogger Tips

It's Lily! Not Molly. Sorry, I got your two sweeties mixed up.

Kristi said... Best Blogger Tips

so fun. love the dress and that crown- gorgeous!

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Absolutely love the dress! Would look great on a little red head girl I know. And the book with the castle and girl is: Christina Katarina and the Box. One of our favorites as well. Out of print but worth finding!

Tiercy said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow, what a talent! I wish I had taken a sewing class in high school. What a darling dress!
