Whimsy Couture Review & Giveaway (ENDED)

Winning comment is #14!


I have been following Whimsy Couture's blog for sometime now -- I was a secret admirer of her work :). So, imagine how surprised and excited I was when she contacted me for a review and giveaway. If you are not familiar with Whimsy Couture, it is an etsy store that carries a lot of easy to follow patterns to sew your own boutique style children's clothing. If you don't sew or don't much enough time to sew, you should still check out the store for its ready made clothing that are very reasonably priced.
Here's DD with her dress. My photo is definitely not as cute as Whimsy Couture's photo, but you get the idea ;). DD adores her dress and loves wearing it.
I made this dress for DD but it turned out a bit too large on her, so she will probably be wearing this later in the summer :).





I used to sew a lot, but I don't have time to do that now. When I have more time, I would like to pick up sewing again because it is so much fun to see DD wearing the cute dresses I make for her. Plus, I love that I can really personalized each piece by picking out my own fabric and adjusting it to DD's height.




I love the patterns and designs offered by Whimsy Couture, so I will be shopping there in the future for sure. The instructions written by Whimsy Couture are easy to follow and even if you are new at sewing, you will be able to make cute clothing using them. To buy your own Whimsy Couture patterns, please go to its etsy store to make your purchase.




Many thanks to Denise of Whimsy Couture. She has generously offered a 3-pack tutorials of choice delivered via email. This giveaway is open world wide.
