I’m so glad to have the last of my fellow admin crew from Sew Much Talent here today sharing her dresses for The Day and Night Dress Challenge.  Welcome Tisa of Simply T Fashions!

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!!




*Stylish Fabric is offering  25% OFF this hunter green poly crepe using the code: “Tisa” upon checkout.*

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.

Love you mucho,

  1. Tisa, you suit off the shoulder dresses so well. Love your coffee dress and the colour too. Your cocktail dress is equally lovely…especially the lovely fluted hem design.

  2. WOWZA! Your coffee dress is adorable! BTW, I have that mug! And, that cocktail dress…YES! It’s perfect for you and fits really well! Great job!

  3. Double whammy . I really love both dresses and your cocktail dress is amazing
