Seattle, Washing...






I love a challenge which is why I knew I just HAD to enter the “Pink & Red” Competition. I created a very cute outfit just for the challenge! I designed and constructed every element of the outfit myself- tube top, skirt, detachable bow, bow hair clip. I even hand embroidered each polka dot myself, and and sewed the bow for the hair clip.

Material Notes

modal jersey, jet-set knit, felt, thread, elastic, embroidery thread, time and love




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual, Classic, Evening Wear, Mod, Other, Preppy, Romantic, Vintage
Knits/Jersey, Other

    Very sweet little dress BUT where is the red on it, the comp is for a predominantly Pink & Red outfit and yours has none. Suerly it would not qualify. “Neutral colors such as black or white or a coordinating print can be part of the garment, but pink and red must be the main colors” a tiny bow in the hair is not part of the garment.

      Well Wendy, thanks for the constructive criticism. I will let Burdastyle decide if it will qualify or not. It also stated that the colors could be in any proportion, e.g. " a garment may be red with pink trim or accents". I have a red bow in my hair as well as red stitching on the polka dots! And it did not say garment, it said outfit, which the bow is a part of. Are you entering the contest?
