Let's have a little contest. We Have A WINNER!

***We decided on Jaclyn! Her description was: "The Miss Madeline dress is as versatile as your imagination. The optional apron can be made with contrasting fabric or from a vintage handkerchief or tea towel. What a wonderful way to use Grandmas old hankies, or make your own with the exclusive bird embroidery design included.You’re sure to love the simplicity and sweetness of Miss Madeline. (on the small pattern) orYou’re sure to love the flattering, functional design of Miss Madeline. (on the big pattern)" . Jaclyn, just email me at mamacaffee@hotmail.com and let me know what size pattern you would like. ***
Do you see the part of this beautiful cover that says "description here"? Yeah...
I have yet to think of the perfect description for the covers ( there are two different sizes 6mo-4 yrs and 5-10 yrs) of the Miss Madeline pattern. What is wrong with me?? I know I want the descriptions to be basically the same with maybe one sentence that says something about what appeals to big girls or what is great about the pattern for little girls. You know, just to add a little extra selling point about that particular size range. So I have decided to hand it over to you, my sweet readers, we are going to have a little contest. Write me a description for this pattern and I will have my best sewing girlfriends help me chose which one I should use, and the winner gets a copy of the pattern when it is finished. How does that sound? Lazy? LOL! Give me a break! I have a baby who is apparently living off of my brain cells! I have a hard time completing sentences these days! PLEASE HELP THE CRAZY WOMAN! I will decide sometime by Friday morning.
.
By the way, how do you like the cover? Pretty snazzy huh? My sweet friend Donella did that for me. (The same one who did my blog design too.) She is VERY good, and loves doing this for people so if you would like to get in touch with her just ask and I can give you her email address. I highly recommend her!

Wow...I don't think I could write something good enough for you, but I can try anyway. :D

Here goes:
Vintage or Modern? Country or City Girl? It's up to you. Use a vintage hankie for the apron, or whatever you choose for a vintage and/or country look. Leave it off and use modern fabrics for a city girl.

I'll give it a go! It's a gorgeous pattern- I love the cover design.

"A sweet and simple dress which the fussiest of little girls are sure to love. The optional apron is a whimsical addition which would suit any occasion."

"Little Miss Madeline" is reminiscent of what little girls used to wear in the olden days. Pull Grandma's vintage hankies out of that cedar chest and showcase it on the apron of this classic peasant dress or embroider your own sweet birdie design (included!). This timeless dress is classic, yet comfortable, and is sure to meet the "twirly and girly" requirements of any little princess!
