Win This Upcycled 18" Doll Dress! A Drawing on Facebook!

Greetings and Salutations Doll Friends!!

So... As you know, I've been upcycling 18" Doll Clothes from regular clothes for a while now. I've made so many posts about how easy it is. You can find instructions here and here and here and here and probably a few links I am forgetting. They are so much fun to make that I make them just for the fun of it really. I get a kick out of it every single time a little dress emerges so easily from a sourced item that might otherwise end up in a landfill or something.... I digress. The by product of my enjoying the process is I a becoming over run with doll clothes! We are out of room in the doll closet even!! So... What to do...? 

Have a drawing to give away a free dress!!!! This is probably going to be the first of many upcoming 'give aways' because I seem to me amassing way too many doll clothes and other items and how much fun is a good old fashioned give away drawing....? 

How do I enter the drawing you ask? Easy peasy lemon squeezy!! You simply go to my blog's Facebook page and 'like' the page, find the contest photo in photos (it'll be the one that says "Win this Dress" with this dress on it) and share the photo with your friends. That's it. 

The drawing will be held on Mother's Day since it's coming up this Sunday. That is May 10, 2015 at 8pm Central Standard Time. Due to shipping rates the contest is only open to US Residents!! I will announce the winner on Facebook and come and update this blog as well. 

Here is the dress on an Our Generation Doll. They have a bit of a thicker torso, more like AG Dolls, than the Tolly Tot that is modeling above. 

PLEASE NOTE! When I make these little dresses, sometimes in order for them to come out right, the seams don't match up perfectly. Please see above, the seam is a bit wonky... It doesn't really detract from how the dress falls and my daughter says she didn't notice it... But I am a perfectionist and thought I'd mention it. This is why I probably won't ever try and sell my dresses. So... I don't want anyone disapointed by it's imperfection! I chose it as a contest dress anyway because I thought it was so pretty otherwise. So... There is that. If you want to give a home to this slightly imperfect dress, go and enter the contest! My Facebook page has been stuck at 96 likes for months now... I really don't care about the number but my kids seem to get a kick out of it so I thought it'd be fun for them to see it go over the 100 mark. We will see if it happens. I sometimes feel like I am talking to myself with this blog but... I have fun with it so. That's what counts right!

Good luck!! 


  1. The dress is beautiful! I sew too, and I can't always get my seams to match up either. I don't really think of it as an imperfection, just a quirk of being handmade. It adds a bit of character. :)

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet encouragement! It means a lot!!
