Hey all!  Welcome to the last day of the Day and Night Dress Challenge blog tour!  To finish off this great week of inspiration we have the amazing projects of Elewa blog, Judith Dee’s World, and Mrs. Hughes.

Elewa Blog

Doja writes: Before starting this project, I knew that both my day and night dresses had to be coherent in some way – I needed something that would link the two together. From this came the idea of an interchangeable overlay top that could be worn with both dresses, giving them a different look; I wanted my day dress to be able to transform from simple to elegant and my night dress to go from elegant to even more elegant. Hence, I drafted a simple shift dress for the daytime look and a midi evening dress for my night look. There was actually no inspiration behind my night dress’ pattern, it was a very impromptu design that I made up as I went along. Needless to say they both turned lovely.

Judith Dee’s World

Judith writes: “My day dress is a simple animal print (polyester sateen) shift dress made using McCall’s 6465. I can dress it up or down using accessories! It is perfect for running errand or for a lunch date! My night dress is a velvet swing dress partially made using McCall’s 7407 with a self-drafted skirt. Perfect for date night or church!”

Mrs Hughes

Tanya writes: “I decided to step out of my color comfort zone for both of my dresses and went with a muted black for my day look, too. My day dress is a Cashmerette Turner in a charcoal/grey damask double knit. My night dress is Butterick 6415 made with bridal satin and some Anna Sui lace I’ve been hoarding and has all the bells and whistles — boning, French seams, self fabric binding and crepe de chine lining.”
