Have you ever sewn something that you liked and were proud of, only to keep it hidden in the closet and never wear it? I know I have done plenty of that. Sometimes, it is just not my style; sometimes, the fitting isnt perfect; and sometimes, i just don’t get a chance to wear it that often.
But what do you do with all that nicely sewn stuff in your closet? I don’t like to donate them with all my other cloths — simply because whoever who are shopping in thrift stores will not realize that someone had put all that effort into making this garment, and it will not be appreciated since its not a name brand.
And I, as the almost always shortest person among my friends, cant really imagine too many appropriate (read: who is into the style AND short) girls to give away some garments. So I thought: hey! would anyone who reads my blog want them? YOU, might be short, YOU, might like this dress, and YOU, will appreciate all that effort put into sewing! So here is the start of many (hopefully not too many, since I have a better grasp of my style now) series of PetiteRepublic give away!
So here is my first give away — big circle circle dress! I made this in summer 2008 when I first met my serger.I wore it only once after I have made it, what a shame! Its made of polyester but I loved the circle patterns! You can wear it loose or wear it with a belt, OR you can alter it into a bubble dress/top easily since the bottom is just finished with serger. I imagine that if you are taller than 5ft, this dress might look too short on you (haha, suck on that, normal height people!!!) and would be better as a top.
Anyway, the only real size requirement for this garment is that your chest size should be somewhere between 30 and 35 inches. If you want this dress, just leave me a comment and tell me why I should pick you! If there is more than 1 person who wants it, I’ll pick the person who made me laugh most or the person who seem most desperate for it 🙂 OH! And if you are outside US, leave your country name as well so I can look up how much shipping would cost me — if its not too much I will put you into consideration as well! Make sure that you leave your email address so that I can contact you for shipping address. You have 1 week from today to be the winner!
