GIVEAWAY: Hannah Everly Bow Tie Skirt
My fourteen-year-old sister Hannah and I are total opposites. I can whip out an essay in half an hour, while she slaves for days over the same paper. She can get little kids to do anything she wants them to out of their total adoration of her, while I struggle to keep calm and patient in a room of three-year-olds. Another big difference between us is that Hannah is a complete genius at a sewing machine, while everything I attempt ends up uneven and ripped apart. It’s totally unfair how that worked out.
Anyway, long story short, I absolutely love these bow skirts that Hannah made. I love them so much that the first time she came into the living room wearing one, I shot up in my seat and asked where she got it. Because I wanted one, too, obviously. (No, I’m not above buying something my sister owns) And when she shrugged and said, “Oh, I just saw a picture of something like this and decided to make it last night,” I basically freaked out. I was so proud of her! No pattern, no instructions–just Hannah doing her thing with a sewing machine and some spare fabric.
I’m going to have to rave a little now, because, honestly–these skirts go with just about everything. Being semi-obsessed with shopping and fashion myself (remember that I am a teenage girl!) I was just so excited to find a skirt that would look cute no matter what I paired it with! The bow skirts are so modest and feminine and perfect for the hot weather we’ve been having lately in Virginia. Can you tell I’m proud of my sister’s designs?
So anyway, after a lot of talk and prayer, our family encouraged Hannah to try to start a little business selling these bow skirts. Not sure how far she’ll get, but she’s a hard worker and I know that God won’t let her efforts go to waste. She just started an Etsy shop yesterday, where she’s selling the bow skirts for $39.95, plus shipping. I also think she’ll have a booth at next month’s homeschool convention in Virginia, so hopefully she’ll get some business!
Anyway, this is the part you probably were waiting for. Hannah has agreed to let me give away a custom bow skirt in blue seersucker to one lucky reader! You can enter by commenting below with your name and email address. The contest will be open until Sunday at 10 PM EST, and then I’ll announce the winner on Monday morning. The winner can then email me with their information and pick the size.
If you’d like to buy a skirt for you or a friend/loved one, then check out Hannah’s Etsy shop and order one! She custom makes each skirt according to size and pattern, so you’ll be sure to get something you love!
Good luck, and happy entering!
