Daydreamer Dress Raffle for St. Jude

I mentioned a few months back that I was planning to do the Warrior Dash in May. I officially signed up for the race a couple of weeks ago, and I’m so excited that my husband will be doing it with me, along with my sister-in-law and her husband.

I also signed up to be a St. Jude Warrior. So, to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, I have planned a raffle for this month.

You are, of course, welcome to donate any amount to St. Jude without entering the raffle. Please follow this link if you would like to help.

The first raffle is for this fun and sweet sundress.

(Entry details at the bottom of the post)

Dress details:

I designed and created this dress, using a self-drafted pattern and blue and white striped shirting material.

I made it to fit sizes small to medium.

The following are the approximate measurements with dress lying flat: bust-17″, waist-14.5″, hips-free, length-35″. For reference, my bust and waist measurements are 35.5″ and 27.5″. So, you can see that the dress will work for different sizes.

The straps cross in the back

and there is elastic at the top of the bodice to allow for a range of sizes.

There are sixteen little burgundy buttons down the front for closure.

The skirt is a “not-quite-circle” skirt, and when the dress is buttoned there is a chevron effect on the front of the skirt.

The seams are serged for durability and the skirt has a rolled hem.


Entry requirements:

To enter the raffle

1.) Make a $5 donation to St. Jude (Every $5 counts as separate entry). Please follow this link to donate. If the link does not work, please copy and paste this URL: You’ll be helping to save children’s lives and, as an added bonus, you’ll have the chance to win something!

2.) Once you enter the raffle, let me know that you made a donation by commenting on this post. If your donation was more than $5, let me know so I count every $5 as a separate entry (If you would prefer not to broadcast the amount, you can send me an email at Please leave your email in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. **Please do not forget to comment, because this is how I’m counting entries!** I’d love any help spreading the word on your blog, on Facebook, Twitter, whatever.

Deadline for entry is two weeks from now: Saturday, May 19th, at 10:00 PM EST.

The winner will be chosen by random number generator. I will announce the winner on either Sunday, May 20th, or Monday, May 21st.

Even if the dress won’t fit you, you probably know of someone who the dress will fit. Maybe you could give it as a gift. Remember, your donation and entry is helping children,  so even if you don’t have a use for the dress, you’ll be helping St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital save lives.

**Again, if you have no use for the dress, please still consider giving any amount to help St. Jude anyway. Follow this link if you would like to help.

Let’s help St. Jude and good luck!
