Remember this Briar Rose Ice Cream blouse from a few weeks ago?
I originally labeled the fit as “not all that roomy”, but when Lila went to wear it for the first time after the photos, I realized that a more accurate description would’ve been plain old “too small”. What was I thinking, making a size 3?? It’s too bad because the crickets are one of my favorite Briar Rose prints, and I used up my whole yard, but hey, these things happens. At least it was my mistake rather than Lila’s stubbornness this time, but she isn’t gonna wear it.
So instead of letting it languish in the closet, I thought I’d try to find it a new home. Would anyone be interested in taking it off our hands? If you know a little girl who might look sweet in this top, I’d be happy to mail it off to you.
It’s a size 3 with about an inch of added length – the style is loose-fitting and pretty forgiving, so the 3 is probably just right for an average 2.5 or 3 year old, or maybe a super scrawny 4 year old. Here’s a link to the Ice Cream Dress pattern if you want to look at any of the exact measurements.
To enter the giveaway just leave a comment on this post by next Thursday, August 22nd, and I’ll choose a winner after that. And if you need a prompt for the comment, you could tell me the name the little girl who might end up wearing this top, or just tell me a name you like – I’ve always been obsessed with names and I love to hear what other people choose. Or whatever else you want to say, I’m not picky. The giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere.
Thanks for stopping by! Oh and thanks for all your kind comments about the jacket, too!
