Design for Shabby Apple

My dream is to one day have my clothing manufactured and sold in stores.  The thought of seeing a girl pass me on the streets wearing a piece that I designed would be amazing!  (I would probably make a fool of myself and tackle her down telling her how much I think she is the bomb.com for wearing my clothes)

While I have a few things on the back-burner that would help me achieve this, I know that it might be a while before I have the time and resources to see this dream become a reality.  So in the meantime, I am crossing my fingers that I might get a little taste of this with the help of Shabby Apple.

I know I'm waiting till the last minute to enter, but I am submitting the following 3 skirts and 1 dress to the Shabby Apple Dare to design competition:
(I read and reread their rules and regulations on the contest and it never said anywhere that you could only submit one design, so I think I'm good to go)

 Navy Pinwheel skirt

The Pinwheel Skirt would also be available in this mustard color

 
The Gilded Skirt

The Lace for Days Skirt

The Lavender Love Dress

If one of my designs are chosen in their top 15, I would be so very grateful for your support (in the form of votes)!  I'll keep you posted on how things go!

And just curious, if you could pick one of these 4 designs, which one would be your favorite?

  7. All are great but your lace skirt is out of this world - something very timeless and romantic about it. Love the pleated one too but I am terrible at ironing so it would never look as good again! Best of luck.

  26. The Pinwheel skirt is a stunner, especially in navy. But I have a Shade dress that reminds me a lot of your Lavender Love dress, and your dress looks just about perfect for summer, so right now that's the mood I'm in. Best of luck! I've been checking your blog every now and then for a while--I really like that it's real and not so cutesy-pie. Real is good.

  56. Will definitely vote for your designs! We made a black version of your gilded skirt for one of my girlies.... She LOVES it and gets oodles of compliments when she wears it :). Wish we lived closer so you could see her walking down the street -- or more likely bump into her in the grocery store -- that's where you see people on rural NC!! Good luck and thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creativity with us.
