Dress the Dress!

There is nothing like going to the mailbox to find a a fun item for your minis. So,  once or twice a week I order something that cost  one or two dollars. Usually, it is from Ebay, but can be from or any other website.

Recently, I purchased a pack of Fashion doll dresses from China. I knew they wouldn't be gorgeous. When I got them, I was still excited to open the package, because well a surprise is a surprise! The fabric patterns are cute yet very cheap. All of them are cut in the same basic design.

This sparked something in my head. How about a contest for my fashion doll followers!

Three dresses will be sent to the first three people who wish to participate. They will have until midnight February 28th EST. to decorate the dress any way they like, then send a picture to me of a fashion doll wearing the finished product that I will then post. They may keep the dress.  I will ask the remaining followers to vote which dress is fashioned the best and the person with the most votes will win a bag of crafting supplies of ribbons, assorted beads, fabric and lots of other goodies!

Requirements for the contest is only to be a follower of this blog.

Here are the dresses:

Let the fashion making begin!

  1. What a cute idea! I’d love to try finishing one off! But I am in Australia, so I understand if you don’t want to send one to me. Or if three people have already responded. Also love the idea of buying little things to surprise yourself! I do this sometimes too! I love getting mail.

  2. Hi Shannon!
    You are welcome to join in the contest. So far there hasn't been much interest. I will give it more time to get 2 others interested.

  3. This sounds like a really fun contest!

    1. Hey Presto!
      I thought is sounded like fun. Lets see if we can drum up the interest. I may have to make a sample of what can be done with these dresses.

    2. I'd love to enter, for sure!

    3. Great Presto!
      So we have you and Shannon! One more...:-)

  4. Hello Grandmommy,
    What a fun contest. I look forward to seeing how they are transformed.
    Big hug

    1. Hi Giac,
      There doesn't seem to be too much interest. If I don't get a third person I will go with the two.

  5. I love getting mail. I can't wait to see the designs! That's a very creative contest idea.

  6. Hi Penelope!
    I don't know if it will happen. Still waiting for the info from the contestants. That would be the first time I had that happen. Maybe I will just do them myself if I don't hear from them.


It is fun hearing from all of you!
