I drank the Matilda Jane Kool-aid

April 25th, 2010 - By Stephanie Precourt

I’m reminded a lot that I won’t be able to dress Ivy like I do for long.

This I know, even though girls are different, my boys have been the same way through the years.

Anyway, I’m going to savor every moment. Also? I happen to think my kids have their own great sense of style.

Matilda Jane

(I’ve been patiently waiting for Ivy to be able to fit into Matilda Jane dresses. A couple friends of mine are big fans, and now, so am I.)

Find a Matilda Jane trunk keeper near you for shopping info.

There’s also Matilda Jane Art Fair June 26 from 9-4 at the Matilda Jane 435 Workshop in Fort Wayne. (I plan to attend.)

In the meantime, there’s a contest to be entered to win a trip to the Art Fair along with other great surprises. Matilda Jane would like you to send them a small something that reminds you of Matilda Jane clothing. It must fit in an envelope no bigger than 12-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ and it can be a story, a photo, a piece of fabric, anything! If you can, also include a photo of your child or yourself in Matilda Jane gear.

Mail your entry to:

Matilda Jane Clothing
Attn: Sara S.
435 E Brackenridge
Fort Wayne, IN 46802

(deadline is May 10, 2010)

*I’ve not been paid or swagged by Matilda Jane to mention this contest. I’m doing so because it’s local! And fun! And I like it.
