Tank Dress Giveaway!!! - CLOSED

Finally, here it is-my very first giveaway item!! I'm so excited about it and hope you all love it as much as I do (I was so tempted to keep it once I finished)!


I call it the "Dorothy" dress. :)

This tank dress features a white ribbed-knit top and a gingham skirt, attached with wide white elastic. It has a gingham bow attached to one shoulder and white pleats decorating the front of the top. The skirt is french-seamed, so there are no exposed raw edges in it.

It should fit a small to a medium. I am modeling it in these pictures, and the elastic sits around my waist without stretching. It fits me very comfortably, though it might be a bit to large on anyone smaller than me. The tank top part of the dress is sized a medium, if that helps.

The measurement of the elastic unstretched is 27 inches, and FULLY stretched (note, this would not be very comfortable to wear!) is 44 inches. My waist measures 25 inches, so I believe it will fit a waist of 24 - 40 inches. HOWEVER, this is simply my estimate - it depends on your comfort level.



Here is a close up of the bow on the shoulder - I realized that the full-length pictures didn't show it off very well. Also, a close up of the pleats before they are stretched.





Rules for Entering:

There are 3 easy things you need to do to enter the giveaway:

1) Become a follower of my blog
2) Create a post linking to it on your own blog.
3) Leave a comment with your email address and the link to the post on your blog that has the link to my link (ha ha, does that make sense??)

This counts as one entry. You can get one extra entry by adding a picture of the dress to your link!

If you have any questions or difficulty with any of this, send me an email or leave a comment and I'll get back to you within the day.


The duration of this giveaway is somewhat flexible. I'm thinking a week or possibly even two, but you can enter as long as the post heading says ACTIVE instead of CLOSED.

Good luck!!
