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.
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!)
So to refresh you on last week’s post, the “Day” part of my Challenge is made with New Look 6803 in this 100% rayon fabric.
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!
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
