Welcome Daniela of On the Cutting Floor and designer at DG Patterns.  Daniela’s colorblocked dress was one of my favorite dresses from last year’s Day and Night Dress Challenge, so I have been looking forward to seeing what she would make for this year!

The Day and Night Dress Challenge 2018: Coffee & Cocktails w/ On the Cutting Floor

Hello everyone,


I am thrilled to present my participation on The Day and Night Dress Challenge 2018!  Elizabeth, from Elizabeth Made This has invited me this year to participate in this challenge and I am glad I did!  It is super fun and I love to see all the work involved in everybody’s dresses.

This time, the challenge was based on two dress themes:  Coffee and Cocktails



For the coffee dress, I chose to use the Susan Dress pattern.  I love the sporty style of this knit dress and how the clashing red and blue colors add an 80’s vibe to it.

I thought this dress will be ideal for the coffee dress challenge because it is comfy, easy to wear and with a casual look.


For this version of the cocktail dress I chose to wear the Reno Dress pattern, just launch last weekend.

This dress features an easy wrap style with a tulip hemline to add a unique touch to this classic design.

Keep watching here on Elizabeth Made This   and on YouTube between now and February 28th for more amazing dresses from this wonderful global crew of sewing bloggers and vloggers I’ve assembled!
