happy st. paddy’s day, and guess what? skirt as top is one year old today! i can hardly believe it. this year has been such a fun whirlwind for me, and i’m so glad i started a blog to share more about my projects and really get to know you all better. i’m having a blast.
i thought it’d be fun, on my very first blogiversary, to give something back to you guys for being so awesome. i decided that i want to make and give away a custom super hero cape to one lucky reader! sound good? it fits probably a 2T on up.
here’s how to win a cape for your little one, made by me:
- leave a comment telling me your child’s name (or first initial) and their favorite color (or colors).
- giveaway will close on tuesday evening (the 20th), and i’ll announce a winner on wednesday. **GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**
- if your email is not linked in your profile, please leave it with your comment. the format of skirtastop(at)gmail(dot)com works great if you’re not into spam.
- open to US and international residents, because i get a kick out of international mail. 🙂
- void where prohibited.
thanks so much for reading, and may the luck of the irish be with you!

Happy 1 year! My girls would love this, since one would cry if the other got a cape, I’ll go with a last initial so they can share. “D” and without a doubt, pink is the fav color. Thanks for a fun giveaway!
Hi Kristin, I found you a little time ago but I love your blog ad I follow you from Italy.

congratulations on an AMAZING year of blogging! you’re unstoppable! and very kind to do a giveaway. i think you might already know my kid’s first initial and favorite color 😉
How fun. First initial is G and green is probably the fave if I had to guess.
My daughter Willa would get such a kick out of this. She is almost 2 but loves playing dress up. Favorite colors? Hmmm, not sure about that one, but her Momma loves teal and magenta. I love your blog! Can’t believe you only have a year under your belt.
I love your blog and your designs! Keep blogging because your are soooo inspiring! I think Ava would love this cape. She’s 4 and when asked, her favorite color is the same as her sisters (blue any shade). really ANY color would be wonderful! I’ve always wanted to make a super hero cape for them..:)
My little super hero’s name is Jonathan. At 18 months I don’t think he has a favorite colour, but big sister Mathilda would say it was blue 😉 I love your blog, it’s so honest and so inspiring, I’m really glad I found it, thank you so much.

It’s amazing how much you have accomplished in a year, as a seamstress, designer, creator, blogger… I am so proud of you! You have already made so many beautiful things for our girls and I’d prefer that another reader win this giveaway, but I had to leave a comment congratulating you! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what the next year of skirtastop has in store!
My daughter’s name is Abril, she loves pink and purple.
Hi my little fella is Oz and his favourite colour is green (dinosaur crazy!!!!) of course if I won there might be arguments with his little sis B, but she’s only 18 months and her fave colour is rainbow- as in “Which colour do you like? A bow” so that one might be a job for mummy!!
Happy Blog Birthday!!
