Hey all!  Welcome to day 5 of the Day and Night Dress Challenge blog tour!  Today we have some more lovely dresses to show off!  I’m here to introduce the projects of Thanks I Made Them and On the Cutting Floor.

Thanks I Made Them!

Bianca writes:

“I made a maxi length African wax print dress for day wear. I love the ease of construction in this bold dress. I modified Mccalls 7185 to include pockets and extended it to the floor.
My evening dress is made using a metallic knit fabric with a lovely drape. I love the train and cowl neckline that can be adjusted and worn several ways.”

On the Cutting Floor

Daniela writes: “[I used my] own patterns drafted for the challenge. The V-neckline was the basic concept behind both dresses, though the knit dress has a negative ease compared to about 3 inches of ease added to the day dress.  The day dress uses a velvet with a 3% stretch. I used 1.2 yard of blue, half a yard of white and 1 yard of purple.
For the knit dress I used a textured knit fabric from Stylish fabric.”
