Lizzy House Dress Contest

It started as a lark. Most of my ideas do. 

WHAT IF? Everyone wore cats. Cat dresses. What if I could get people who don't even like cats to put cats in their wardrobe??? What if I gave them prizes for doing it? What if I called it the #catnapdresscontest. Will anyone play along? 

Well you did. You went along with me. Over 100 people made cat dresses and entered the contest. 

So lets do it again. But this time, you've got lots to choose from. One of my main objectives in designing textiles is to bring joy into the lives of those who use them, and that's the objective of the #lizzyhousedresscontest. While there are prizes to be won, the main objective is to inject a little joy into your wardrobe and maybe learn a new skill or just show off your wicked style, and create a bit of community doing it. 

Thank you for bringing joy into my life.
