Adorable Etsy Shop. . . Marie-Madeline Studio Review and Giveaway!!!

Check out the deliciously cute skirt the Marie-Madeline Studio made for Kirsten! I LOVE it, and Kirsten just looked so adorable wearing it!
As the weather starts getting cooler (love the crisp fall weather!), I love dressing Kirsten in skirts for church instead of dresses. Skirts are just so much more versatile, and I like to pair them with long-sleeved shirts or sweaters. It's really hard to find a cute kid's skirt at a regular store. This skirt from Marie-Madeline Studio is such a quality piece, and I adore the tiers of ruffles in three different fabrics!

Marie-Madeline Studio is a family business, and run by the sweetest team of mother and daughters! They make hand-sewn bags, aprons, and clothing for children and women! They also sell sewing patterns, and they have over 200 beautiful fabrics available in their online fabric store! If only I knew how to sew. . .
They sell ready-made items in their Etsy shop, or you can completely customize your designs by choosing fabrics from their website. I chose their Gracie Knee-Length Ruffle Skirt for Kirsten. It's such a sweet little girly skirt! I had such a hard time choosing the fabrics, so I ended up giving them an example of a skirt I liked and they chose these fabrics for me. I love the colors! They also got Kirsten's waist measurement from me, so the skirt fits her perfectly!
Marie-Madeline Studios is generously offering a giveaway of a customized item from their shop to one of my readers! You can choose any of the skirts, in any children's size from 2 to 14!

You could also choose a fun, flirty apron for yourself if you are the winner!

Here's how to enter to win a customized skirt or apron of your choice:

Thank you to Marie-Madeline Studios for making this beautiful skirt for me to review!

  2. I'm no good at having one favorite anything (food, color, number...); I never have been. So I hope you don't mind me sharing the 3 items I liked most - the gracie skirts (especially the swell fabrics green, cornflower blue, red one), the chic sisters aprons (although I don't cook so I don't need one, but isn't that the great thing about winning something - besides I have lots of friends who cook so these would be great gifts) and the bianca bag (although I'm not sure what fabric I'd like best). Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. Please leave me a comment on my blog if I am fortunate and blessed enough to win!
