DownEast Women


***Giveaway is now closed.***

Hi there. I'm back with another DownEast review. This time it's for the ladies.

What do you think of my skirt? I think it goes with just about everything and is perfect for fall. It looks and feels like wool, but it is really a washable cotton/poly blend. Some day I will own fancy dry-clean only wool skirts, but not while I have little kids living in my house. I like the interesting darts and the full lining and the fact that it is gray, which is so much easier for me to wear than black. My only complaint is that it was too long. Or maybe I am too short? Whatever the case, a few minutes at the sewing machine fixed it right up. And now I am tempted to wear it more often than I should.

I have good news! The nice people at DownEast think one lucky reader deserves a little something new, too. Hey, it could be you!

Here's what you need to do:
Browse DownEast. They have some great new things this season! Then come back to this post and leave a comment telling me your favorite item for fall. For an extra entry, you can like DownEast on Facebook. Just make sure you leave an additional comment telling me that you've done it. Do all of this before Tuesday, October 4th at 10 pm Mountain Standard time. I will announce the winner first thing Wednesday morning. Good luck!

p.s. Don't forget, today is the last day to enter the DownEast Girl giveaway. Have you entered? Winner will be announced tomorrow.

    Also, I was just looking at your post on swaddling and wondering how big you make those swaddling blankets? Are they a yard square or do you use the whole width of fabric? I can't quite tell just by looking at it. Thanks for your help!
