cupboard cleaning & clearing :: Dresses Giveaway (sorry, closed!)

giveaway dresses

For the next few days, I plan to undertake the task of cleaning out all the cupboards we have at home. Sort of like a prep for welcoming the Lunar New Year. But more for the satisfaction I know it'll bring in me, the thought of clean and tidied storage space which you must know, haven't seen the wipe cloth for ages.

The wardrobe is the best place to start, I suppose and I have these two precious dresses in storage for a long time. I'll like to keep it until I can fit into again, but hey, who am I kidding? I have given big bags of clothing I can't fit into anymore (especially those pants!) away during one collection and those two dresses had escaped. Instead of hoarding them, I'll like to give to any suitable takers who would appreciate the dresses and happily give extra wear mileage to them. I'd hand washed to rid off the dust, sun dried and lightly ironed them for this post.

This giveaway is now open and there will be two winners (one for each dress, well, unless there's only one willing taker. Hopefully, not none!), residing in Indonesia. Please leave a comment, stating your preference (button up black dress or vintage brown dress), along with your email address. I'll close this giveaway on the 30 Jan and announce the winners the next day.

Here are the garment details:

vintage handmade brown dress

A vintage handmade dress, with two front pockets and trim details. The fabric is slightly coarse and dress features a back zipper and tie-backs. (You might recall that I blogged about it before, if you know me that long enough.) I'd once adjusted the hem so the dress ends at just under my knees.
