knits + little lizard king giveaway

August 11, 2014

ann kelle / lizard king dress giveaway

Twirly dresses and skirts are the best! And Little Lizard King has a plethora of twirly goodness in their sewing patterns for children’s clothing. They made a couple of adorable garments using their patterns. (Both of which are perfect for twirling). When I first saw the Homegrown Tank dress, I wanted one for myself.  It’s so dainty and sweet. The Homegrown Tank dress features my new floral knit and the pink houndstooth. It’s such a pretty combination.  And I love the jade straps! They also made a super fun skirt from their Everyday Play Skirt pattern. The waist is made of knit and the bottom is woven fabric.  See all of the Little Lizard King patterns here. In celebration of twirling, knits and just because, we’re hosting a giveaway. One random winner will be selected for a total of 5 yards of Ann Kelle knit fabric. (You’ll get to choose which prints you want). Plus, my friends over at Little Lizard King are offering a $50 gift card. Sa-weet! Enter below. The deadline to enter is Sunday, August 17th at midnight. UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway! Congratulations to Jody R. for being selected as the winner!
