To celebrate the opening of my storenvy,I've decided to give away this dress  on my tumblr!
Bust = 34" - 41"
Waist = 26" - 38"
Skirt length = 21" + 1" lace
Click here for information on how to enter.


I'm announcing the opening of the pre-order for a run of my Notre Dame original print dresses and skirts. In addition to Notre Dame and bells, the print also features golden pigeons and gargoyles! The new fabric will be printed on Spoonflower's Organic Cotton Sateen and fully lined, made to your size. The hem and bodice are edged with soft gold lace.

Please note that the sample photo uses a slightly different fabric than will be ordered for this. They will be made from the new batch of fabric with a slightly bigger and thicker-lined print.

And  now onto the pictures!







Some closeups:









The print will be available in black/gold, black/white, and red/gold:

Will the dress come in a deep, rich black? The sample looks more blueish.

Hopefully! The fabric came a bit darker but after a washing to pre-shrink, the became dark grey. The stock photos on the dressmakers dummy are more accurate than the ones taken outside :)

thanks for the info.

It's a known issue with Spoonflower (and similar places). True, colorfast blacks and the printing process aren't really compatible.

Just reblogged. It looks amazing!!! Will you announce the winner on your Tumblr?
30th-Jun-2013 11:26 pm (UTC)
Yup the giveaway ends July 31st and I'll make an announcement there as well as contact the winner privately~

Your site only has the black/gold for preorder. When will the black/white and red/gold options be available?
30th-Jun-2013 11:41 pm (UTC)
Adding them at the moment :3

Wow! This is really, really lovely. You've done a good job on the print!
1st-Jul-2013 12:08 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! I look forward to reordering the fabric with a few tweaks and in new colors :D
1st-Jul-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
This print is so pretty, I love it! Will you be able to put up sample pictures of the red colorway soon? It would be great to see how the print comes out on the fabric. :)
1st-Jul-2013 01:42 am (UTC)
Glad you like it! I'm ordering at least enough to make 2 dresses of each color with the new fabric + however many preorders I get in the next few days. But I should have a garment in each color up in the coming 2-3 weeks.
1st-Jul-2013 12:50 am (UTC)
Could you perhaps make a post on the comm sales so you can re-add the sales stuff? Or link me to your store-envy so I can check the prices. My university colors are crimson and gold so I'm rather interested haha :)
1st-Jul-2013 01:41 am (UTC)
The comm_sales post is stuck in moderation but I can pm you my storenvy
1st-Jul-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
I was wondering what colour of edging the black/white version would have?
1st-Jul-2013 03:07 am (UTC)
I have both white and black lace so it could be either :3 (Though I would have white as the default)
1st-Jul-2013 05:27 am (UTC)
Yay! So should I just include my preference when I send my measurements? ***there's something edward gorey-esque about this print, and i find myself fast falling in love***
1st-Jul-2013 06:43 am (UTC)
Yup that would totally work :D Ooh I really like his artwork! Thank you :3
1st-Jul-2013 08:26 am (UTC)
That's really nice! I hope I win the give-away :3 I also can't wait to see a sample of the red-golden colourway!
1st-Jul-2013 07:18 pm (UTC)
Good luck :D I hope to have the new colorway in the next week or two
1st-Jul-2013 09:22 am (UTC)
I think it's a really lovely Print :)
I already saw it on Tumblr :)
The colorway is cool and daring :) but it works <3
great job!
1st-Jul-2013 07:19 pm (UTC)
Really glad you like it :D
1st-Jul-2013 09:44 am (UTC)
I adore the red x gold colourway~! <333
1st-Jul-2013 07:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much :D

I like the print a lot! I am thinking about purchaising the red x gold JSK, but I would need to see the JSK first before I can decide. You wrote to another poster that a sample garment in red x gold will be available in 2-3 weeks. Is it then still possible to enter the pre-order? I mean, is there a deadline for submitting my order?

What about shipping costs? I did not find any information in the storeenvy FAQ...? (But I would wait to see the egl_sales_comm post, if the shipping is listed there.)

Will some kind of head accessory be available? E.g. a head band with fabric put over a plastic band or a head bow? Or would it be possible to order some fabric leftover from making the dress, so I could make my own head accessory?

Does an extra fee apply if I my measurements are more than the measurements of your giveaway JSK?

Will the new fabric (cotton sateen) be shiny?

Will it be possible to order the JSK without using storeenvy? E.g. order by email?

Glad you like it! I'm ordering the new colors today (just enough for 1 or 2 garments in the other 2 colors) so if you'd like me to order you some as well, I can totally do that with a deposit :)

The shipping info on storenvy should pop up after you add it to your cart I think but it shouldn't be more than $10 in the US.

I am planning on offering bows but waiting on more fabric first haha.

Nope no extra fee for custom sizing :)

The cotton sateen has a slight sheen to it but it's by no means shiny. The dress in the photos is made from the cotton sateen.

Yup you can always just shoot me an email at dinabina_chama@yahoo.com :D

Thank you very much for answering my questions!

> if you'd like me to order you some as well,
> I can totally do that with a deposit :)
No, thank you for the offer, but I need to see a real garment in the red colorway first before I can decide if I want to order :) And if I wait, I might be able to see the headbow as well :)

I was interested in shipping costs with insurance and tracking to Germany, but I forgot to mention that I am not from the US :) I suggest that you tell me the shipping cost not now, but later when I would order.
1st-Jul-2013 09:40 pm (UTC)
No problem :) I hadn't included any other colorways in my initial order because I wasn't sure how it would turn out but I look forward to showing the two new ones to the community soon :3

Ah got ya. I can let you know at time of purchase :)
25th-Jul-2013 05:03 pm (UTC)
Do you have sample garments in the red colorway already? I am checking your storeenvy shop every day, but it still shows only a fabric sample for red and garment pictures of the gray items...

Where will you "notify" about the red samples? With a comment here, or with a new LJ post, or will you update the shop...?
25th-Feb-2014 10:13 pm (UTC)
Can I see sample items in the red colorway? I checked your storeenvy shop, but the listing for red items still shows the finished grey items and only a fabric sample of the red colorway...
1st-Jul-2013 11:24 am (UTC)
I like your jsk :) It's simple but lovely! Can't wait for your other idea :)
1st-Jul-2013 07:09 pm (UTC)
Really glad you like it :D I have 3 other print ideas I'm currently working on that I'll be posting here soon :D
1st-Jul-2013 08:56 pm (UTC)
Were you under another name or sold in the comm sales at one point? My friend was selling that star skirt print of yours for a moving sale.
1st-Jul-2013 09:39 pm (UTC)
Yup that was my first print :D I recently got it reprinted and the starjar skirts are available in all three colorways (blue, pink, and purple)
1st-Jul-2013 10:57 pm (UTC)
A little bit off-topic but I LOVE YOUR HAIR!!! I tried to do something similar a little while back and it came out nowhere near as epic as I imagined, and now I simply *must* comment to say I really love love love your hair! Haha.
[and your shoes. and Notre Dame, that's so cool that you made a print of it! ^_^]
