Petite Republic Giveaway – Choir Girl Dress!

I am pretty anxious to get rid of stuff I dont use ever since the start of our remodel/spring cleaning. So here it is, a linen dress I made back when I first started sewing. I must admit, the zipper insertion on this dress is a little weird, and I did neglect to pre-wash the fabic before I started the project. Since my fiance refused to show his face out the door with me in this dress fearing that he would be arrested for dating an underage-looking girl, I have never ever worn/washed it (so it might shrink a little when you wash it).

Now all the warnings had been issued, I do love this dress 🙂 I think it might had been featured on a school magazine somewhere in Britian, since some person had asked me for a high resolution photo (but never sent me their magazine, pfft!!). The dress reminds me a little of Maryy‘s style, but I just cant pull off that look without looking like a 15 year old.

Boob requirement: bust 32 inches or less — I am 33 (34 on a good day)  and this is too tight on the bust when I squeezed my twins in

Height requirement: decently short? Though this will work as a tunic with black tights and cute Mary Janes on any skinny girls!

If you want it (or even want it for your daughter or someone else), just leave me a comment and I will semi-randomly choose someone a week from now on (you will be emailed if you are the winnaaaar).

  1. Ah, it’s such a cute dress! I’d love to have it. Your design skills are topnotch~

    (sadly, yeah, I do fit that chest requirement… T__T In this case it’s a good thing? )

  2. Tell D to wear a ski mask when he goes out in public with you wearing that dress. That way, no one will be able to identify him (but he will almost certainly be apprehended by the authorities). 😛

    Oh, and best phrase from your post is this:
    “when I squeezed my twins in”. Very nice!

  3. I just found out that you have a blog from Vivat Veritas, glad that you’ve decided to start!
    And since I’m, uh, less than 32 inches, I shamelessly declared that I want this dress!

  4. i love this dress! :] i’m barely 5’1 and i have a very small chest haha (30 inches!) its so very cute and wonderful. i can already imagine this in my wardrobe :]

  5. I’d love this dress! I’m only 5’0″ and very small around the chest. The color palette on the dress is very sophisticated, and I’d love to wear it to the next gallery hop we have in my city. 🙂

  6. Lucky you to have a bunch of real life sewing friends 🙂
