THE DAY AND NIGHT DRESS CHALLENGE 2018: SIMPLY T FASHIONS
Hello…My name is Tisa and I blog over at simplytfashions.com
This is my first time joining Elizabeth at the day/night-dress challenge and I was honored when she asked me to join. As I accepted the challenge I immediately started thinking about what looks I wanted to create. I’m not a huge coffee drinker, but I do love me some tea. (The tea you drink that is…lol). So with that I knew I wanted a cute little off the shoulder dress. Why off the shoulder you ask…..Ii don’t know I just love showing my shoulders. So with that here’s what I decided……
The Day Dress Look
I chose Simplicity 8550 View D. I extended the length to a dress and decided to tie the bow to the back instead of the front of the dress. I also shortened the sleeves. I used the beautiful hunter green fabric from stylish fabric. I love the look and feel of this dress. And the bonus to me….this fabric irons beautifully!!
THE NIGHT DRESS LOOK
When I heard cocktails..I was like Yasssss…now we talking!! I live for the night life, but being a mommy of 4 that life has significantly slowed down, but not diminished. (insert wink)..lol So when I get the opportunity to get all dolled up IM ALL IN!! I chose the classic McCalls 6886 and hacked it! I love this pattern as it allows your creative juices to flow. I extended the neck line by 3 inches in the front and the back. I tapered the hem closer to the knee and added a flounce.
I’m ready to party the night away!!
This was such a great challenge and I now have 2 new dresses. Winning!!! Thank you again Elizabeth for including me. I enjoyed reading and virtually meeting all my fellow sew sisters! Until next time.
