the Price is Right...... or is it??

>> Sunday, 30 August 2009

I've been messing about with new dress ideas for a while now, so today, instead of doing my work (shh... don't tell anyone!!) I thought I'd have a go at trying to make some up!

I 1st had a go at a circle dress I've been promising @mummytips, but the fabric I'd bought was pants, it kept sewing really badly! So... until I can buy some more fabric, that dress, is going to be shelved! at least I did get the pattern drawn up and saved for another day!

then I started on another dress! This is a personal favourite of mine.. its a simple style and a great shape for showing off a large printed fabric (which I've got tons of!) I've even bought some fabric especially for making into a dress this shape and I cannot wait to make it now!!

I 1st wanted to do a mock up dress, just to make sure it worked out OK.. it did! (i knew it would!!) so I've decided to run another competition.. using the mock dress!! (don't worry.. its in perfect condition!!)

NOW as per the title of this post.. its inspired me to run a kind of not so free competition! (stay with me on this.. I will explain!!)

I've decided to make this competition a bit differently!

Will the Price be right?? I want you to think of a price.. any price.. (but one your willing to pay!) for this dress!! i can be anything from £0.0001 pennies... to... £11.11 or beyond... the limit is yours?!?!!

The winner will be the person with the most unique *£* price they would like to pay! and are willing to pay this amount! So in fact.. your not actually *winning* the dress.. your winning the dress at a price you'd like to pay! in the most unique amount!

made in Alexander Henry 'Tattoo' fabric, the dress is age 18-24 months.. but it should fit up to age 3-4 *NOT age 5 as stated before, Sorry!!*

OK.. you say.. I'm interested in this competition, but where's the dress?? well here... (below!! LOL)

To enter the competition, Please send an email to with your 'Price is Right' price!!
you can enter via twitter too, all you need to do is add @soph4soph in a tweet along with your 'Price is Right' price!!
