Birthday Bash – Giveaway (13) 3LP Couture Etsy Kids Outfit CLOSED
Congrats to winner/comment #40!
A BIG thank you goes out to 3LP Couture for sponsoring this giveaway as part of the Birthday Bash event…
Let me start by saying that I cannot believe Baby Girl has turned one already; where has the last year gone? I think the older I get, the faster it goes. Naturally I was happy to celebrate with Baby Girl in her birthday best, courtesy of 3LP Couture.
This polka dot party skirt, matching tank top and hair (or shirt) bows is handmade with the best of care from the lovely April of 3LP Couture on Etsy. Not only is this outfit absolutely adorable, the first thing I observed about the outfit was that the stitching is exceptional. April obviously takes pride in her work; it shows in the little details of the outfit. All ends are securely stitched for that extra finished look with complementary thread. The waist of the skirt is fitted to your little ones actual shape while the underskirt is complete with a trim of chiffon to not only ad to the look of the skirt but to give it that added bounce when your little girl is wearing it. A slight turn of the hip in a sudden movement sends the skirt twirling. Each section of material is individually cut and sewn into the skirt by April, giving it a more detailed and creates a three dimensional explosion of color.
You can choose between a cupcake, a number or a letter for the applique of the tank top. As you can see, I chose the number “1” which is carefully cut and sewn using matching material to coordinate perfectly with the colorful polka dot skirt. Again the stitching of the applique is securely complete blending the edges seamlessly onto the tank top using complimentary thread.
The hair bows are also handmade with care to match the outfit and can either be use for the hair or on the the sleeves of the tank top for an over the top look. Baby Girl simply does not have enough hair yet to be able to use these as hair bows so I used them on her tank top. The only con to this I did notice was that the clasp of the hair bow rubbed and scratched her shoulder skin. I think I would either tape over the clasp or make sure to put another top underneath so that the clasps didn’t rub on her skin.
Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the warmest on the day of the Birthday Party so I ended up putting a little jean jacket on her and topped off the entire look with a pair of pink cowgirl boots, even a jean print diaper under her skirt, which incidentally created a whole new look to the outfit.
We had many compliments on this polka dot couture birthday outfit, many of which were from seamstresses who noticed the quality of the detailed work. April clearly takes pride in her work to create keepsake quality clothing. The outfit does not only have to be used for a birthday; add a cute pair of boots and a little shrug for a completely new look your little one can enjoy throughout the summer.
About the Product
This too-cute tank is ready for some fun with double-layered polka-dots and a great, big birthday announcement! No one will have to ask how old the birthday girl or boy is – its big-as-life! This can be customized in any two polka-dots and any number up to 10. This shirt is made up on a white tank – any size from 6mo to size 10/12. Boy and girl colors available – if you don’t see some you like, just ask! I have a MONSTER polka-dot collection!
Customize your cute tank further and order a sweet set of shoulder bows.
This skirt is SO fun, she’ll never want to take it off! Practically every color of the rainbow is represented here – happy, fun and oh, so twirly! Put on those bloomers, cause once the twirling starts, it ain’t never gonna stop!! This skirt makes a full, flat circle when the breeze gets up under it, so get ready with that camera and some music. To make it even more fun (AS IF!) I have added an attached petticoat with a double-layer of frothy seaglass-colored chiffon (same fabric used in pettiskirts!).
I will remake this darling skirt in sizes 6mo to 10 years for your birthday girl, your pretty princess, your “Fancy Nancy” or your little lady. No matter the girl, this one fits the bill. Wear it with boots, sandals, converse or mary-janes! Looks equally adorable in just about any setting! Marching in the mall, ballet in the park, fashion-show Sunday or movie-date Friday. Matches just about any plain colored T and looks fabulous with the Birthday Number tank or the Cupcake T listed in the Birthday Shop at 3.l.p Couture.
One lucky winner will receive a $60 gift code to 3LP Couture’s Etsy shop!
