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.

Brandi Spering said... Best Blogger Tips

This is absolutely amazing! I've always wanted to create clothing, but my sewing isn't that advanced and my patience is low for my non-working sewing machine.

Hope to win it! And congrats to whoever does!
Happy spring!

She's also the one who posted the link for me to read about. I would love the dress for myself, but I think she deserves it more! Thank you for being so kind to do a give away.

Such a beautiful dress! I'm trying to learn to sew clothes now, but I wonder if I'll ever be able to make something this pretty?!

I shared this on my facebook page.

My profile is private though, so I'm not sure if it will count toward an entry.

Thanks for the chance to win!

wow... love it... so 60's!!!

sasrar said... Best Blogger Tips

You work is absolutely beautiful.

I stumbled across your blog via stumpleupon. Boy am I happy I did; I am a junior in college, so I don't have much time for crafting and what not; now that I am home for the summer, I have stolen my mother's sewing machine and plan on taking full advantage of it.

By the way, I'm really excited about your 'Frock by Friday'; big pieces really intimidate me, but your tutorial makes Coffee Date look relatively easy (or easy enough to handle)

Jinii said... Best Blogger Tips

So beautiful!!!

Missy said... Best Blogger Tips

Just discovered your blog. Love it! I'm hoping to try your Frock by Friday someday soon. The "Oh Dear" Frock is adorable.
