Vintage Style Play Dress with Beautiful Form and Function by Sew Elegance {Review and Giveaway} **CLOSED**

Result: 48 Powered by RANDOM.ORG

Congratulations to the winner, KelliAnn!

I present you with another beautiful play dress, this time with vintage flair from Sew Elegance. This precious little dress is a copy of a 1960s design, and it is just as cute today as I'm certain it was back then. Lucky for me, Gisela of Sew Elegance sent me the White Dress with Blossoms to review. Lucky for you, Gisela is providing one of my readers with the Playful Pets dress (pictured, see details below)! This dress is of great quality, and fits right in with my retail items as far as washability and durability. That is definitely important when you have a toddler (and know that everything he/she wears is going to need to be washed and washed and washed and...). The style, however, is definitely different than anything else EG has in her closet. I love the snaps at the top, which not only add a unique style, but make for easy dressing and undressing. The fabric is cut on the bias, so the dress makes for great twirling too! It's so cute on (as evidenced by the pictures of EG wearing it!), and could also be worn as a tunic top with leggings. Another versatile piece, you can make it wearable for just about any season depending on how you layer. Unlike many of the other pieces I have reviewed, the fabrics used are truly different than any that you will find online, anywhere. I imagine that very similar prints may have been used in the 1960s when this dress was designed. This has quickly become another favorite in EG's closet, and, with the quality of it, can easily see this dress in some high end boutique. You will LOVE this dress should you decide to purchase one for your little girl. I also urge you to check out the other children's clothing items in the Sew Elegance shop. I feel confident in saying that everything you receive will be professionally created and of impeccable quality. In Gisela's shop you can find several styles of the little dress I reviewed, a tunic/jumper style dress (in Amy Butler fabrics...my fave!), a beautiful ruffled spring dress, and a three piece girl's outfit. Go check out all of the great styles Sew Elegance has to offer, and see details below for how you can win the Playful Pets dress in your choice of size 1-5.
