Melissa writes: “I used the capitol Hill Dress pattern from Straight Stitch Designs for both looks. My day look is in a space dye jersey from Finch Fabrics. I amped up my night look by using a sequined jersey.”

Sew Redy

Rachel writes, “For my day dress, I sewed the Grainline Alder (view B) using a Robert Kaufman quilted chambray. I used buttons salvaged from a shirt my husband was about to throw out and am so happy they go perfectly with the whole look! My night dress is a mix of the Simplicity 1873 top with the Sewaholic Cambie bottom. The fabric is a kitty cotton I bought in the Nippori fabric district in Tokyo, Japan. I lined it with Bemberg rayon so it feels so luxurious! Perfect for a fancy feline dress!”

Renata writes:”For my day dress, I wanted to create a fun look that I could go shopping with and easily dress up if need be with the change of my shoes and accessories.

 Night Dress: I really wanted to go all out with this, because it was the great challenge for me. But when it came time to cut my dress (BurdaStyle 11/22014 119), I ran out of fabric and had to change my strategy. The V1490 is an awesome alternative with its asymmetrical hem and deep neckline. I felt since the pattern was originally designed with an interlining of batting that the texture of my fabric would be a perfect marriage.  Vogue 1490 Nicola Finetti was my Plan B.

Fabric: All That Glitters Collection – Stretch Velvet Burnout Black: https://goo.gl/uezE7b This is such a pretty fabric and I love the stretch factor and the recovery of it.”

Sewing ala Carte

Sonja writes:

“The LBD was used as the starting point for my pattern choice and I decided to use the RDC Ludivine robe pattern. For the day version a sweatshirt fabric was used with leather accents and visible zippers and a Ponti di Roma used for the night dress.”
