Vogue V1336 – The Day and Night Dress Challenge, Part 2

I did it!  I completed The Day and Night Dress Challenge organized by Elizabeth Made This!  You can read about her Challenge details here.  I completed my Day dress – my “Coffee” dress last week.  I used New Look 6803 and this 100% rayon.  It was an easy pattern and I would happily make it again.

I finally had a chance to take some photos.  It is too cold outside still so we are stuck with these inside shots.

New Look 6803 – The Day and Night Dress Challenge, Part 1

Where has the week gone!  We had a holiday on Monday (“Family Day”), which I spent watching movies and sewing … then it was back to work and not knowing what day it was – pure chaos!

But I have finished 1/2 of my Day and Night Dress Challenge – the “Day” part – it’s time for “Coffee”!  If you would like to learn more about the Day and Night Dress Challenge, head over to Elizabeth Made this … right here!

It will be interesting for me, making two dresses so close together, to discover which pattern I enjoyed making more and which dress I enjoy wearing more!  (There are always favourites!)

But I can do this!

 

I was all set to cut and tape my Itch to Stitch Lisbon Cardigan.  You probably know the one.  Almost everyone has already made one!

I was all set to cut out this beautiful knit print that I purchased last August.  Yes, it’s a few months old, not my oldest fabric though!  This is called a Topaz Print – 85% polyester, 10% rayon, 5% spandex.  I have high hopes for this combination of Lisbon Cardigan pattern and fabric – hopefully this project turns out so well I will never purchase another knit cardigan again – another win for my RTW fast!  

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

Then I realized that it is February … and February is popping over at “Elizabeth Made This” because it is time for her Day and Night Dress Challenge, Coffee & Cocktails edition!  #dayandnightdresschallenge on Instagram @elizabethmadethis
