African Safari Shorts GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

July 22, 2008

centered darkenedLooks like Lily's ready to hop on her jeep, camera around her neck and snap some jungle photos. I wanted the look of this outfit to resemble that of the European explorers in the 20s.

I used a multi-tonal taupe linen material. The shorts have pleats that billow out at the sides similar to the fashion of the early century. I added real wood buttons to the leg cuffs and waistband.

This was a tad tight on Lily so I would have to guess that it might fit a 2-3T.

Best of all, I think these shorts would be wearable for either a boy or a girl. So all you moms with boys who've I've excluded could enter if you'd like.

PLUS, if you leave a comment I will include the matching wooden button barrets, see below.

This giveaway is for the linen short only.

I've also had a couple people ask whether or not it is a problem if their blog is private. No, it is not a problem. I've seen plenty of private blogs in Technorati but if for some reason you don't think your blog is being recognized by Technorati, just let me know you've blogged in a comment to be sure.

Last day for posts is SUNDAY 7/27/08. Winner will be announced TUESDAY morning!

As usual, if you would like a chance to win these shorts 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.

So very cute for a little girl or boy, good thing, because I certainly don't think they'd be flattering on me :o) They're beautiful and I like how you incorporate imaginative settings into your clothes. I can so see them being used on a safari adventure! Take care.

I'm new at this, but I'm trying to figure out how to win some of your awesome work! I have gone through every giveaway and shed a few tears that I wasn't in the running for the clothes in the past... I am IN LOVE with hand-made clothes and am on Etsy daily eyeing up the new talent. I made a link to this on and I would love to win this pair of shorts.

green girl said... Best Blogger Tips

I love the buttons and the matching barrettes. So cute. I used similar fabric and buttons to make my son an Easter suit a few years ago. :) Your creations are perfect size for my daughter. Always hoping to be the lucky winner. :)

Ok, Ok, These are too stinkin cute for words. I could see my sweet little Zoe in these. I wish I could open her closet every morning and it was filled with all the cute clothes you have posted on your blog. Your girls are probably the best dressed in town.

Those shorts are TOO cute. They would look "wildly" fab-u-lous on my little Lauren (who just turned 3 last week). She is all about "fashion". I just found your blog and couldn't stop browsing through your creations. You have serious talent!

Peau Naturelle said... Best Blogger Tips

Adorable! My little one, Emma, would love this. She is always "exploring" and has called herself "Go Go Splorer" (Splorer means explorer in little person speak ;) LOL!) after "Go Diego Go" and "Dora the Explorer". How cool would she look "sploring" in this?! Wow!
