miss haidee - a handmade giveaway

I'll be visiting the very talented Miss Haidee in her studio when I'm in Tasmania. She lives in a place called Peppermint Bay (of course she does!) and there she crafts signature dresses, tunics and bloomers from the most decadent vintage linens. Each garment is entirely unique and utterly whimsical, there's a little love in every stitch. 

Haidee sent me this delightful tunic to gift one of my readers (it will fit a size 2 as a dress but it's designed to fit till about age 5 - it just gets a little shorter, obviously). She is also offering you a 30% discount in her online store with the code: poet. 

To enter this giveaway all you need to do is become a follower of Che & Fidel and leave your name and email address - international entries welcome. Comments close March 31st. The random number generator will choose a winner and I'll add the details to this post. 

But before you go, a few words from the creator herself:

"There is so much mass production and poor quality in the clothing business...I believe it's really refreshing to own an Australian one-off designer piece. Handmade is a labour of love which makes it so enjoyable to wear! I work from a studio nestled by the bay, an Aladdin cave of sorts, a treasure trove of fabrics and embellishments. It's not very organised at the moment but I know where everything is." - Haidee.


Update: Comments Closed. The Random Number Generator chose #2 the jade leaf. Congratulations lovely - Ruby will look gorgeous in her new dress x

  4. This is such a sweet little dress! I already have a very strong feeling that this little bubba i'm carrying is a girl (i'm keeping it a surprise though) and i'd love to be able to dress her in beautiful, one-off handmade clothes rather than mass produced rubbish.

  8. What a delicious little dress. Little girls clothes just like they used to be when I was a kiddo...

    Please don't enter me in your give-away Jodi, I don't know many little girls and alas my own are too big, but it really is a special dress and I wanted to say so.

    1. PS... I just bought the retro stripey orange/brown/yellow pants for Jude and the swimming trunks. This store is amazing. Thanks for the 'poet' 30% off! Worked out nearly as cheap as kmart prices.. well not really but y'know.

  26. Very cute dress. This talented Lady lives over the hill from my parents. Peppermint Bay is a gorgeous part of the world, beautiful views and places to sit and ponder creative thought. Obviously that is what Miss Haidee does. My Lucy would pair this cutie with pink tights and ballet flats... tres chic. dngillespie@optusnet.com.au :0)
