WHAT'S TRENDING FOR ME: NIGHT DRESS...

...it's always so nice coming to this stage of the sewing process.  Especially when the garment you made equals the vision you had at the onset of the project.  I know you are familiar with this sight, you know...the part when you make sure all the used pattern pieces are present and accounted for before folding them as neatly as possible before returning them to their nice little compact envelope.
This was my first pattern choice for my "Night Dress".  I did get a little distracted though and for a couple of days switched to this pattern
 
I love this pattern and want to make it very soon, but I decided to return to my original vision, McCall's 7622.  Of course this dress took longer than I had planned or expected - all my projects do.  I digress.  If  you recall, there are two dresses involved in the Day and Night Dress Challenge.
In keeping with the contest time frame both my dresses must be finished before February 22nd (my dresses will be revealed here on February 25th.  I imposed the 17th as my completion date in an effort to avoid stress.  You'll be able to see early challenge entries and lots of process photos on Instagram.

Thankfully, both dresses are done! I will talk about the "Day" dress a little bit in my next post - so stay tuned...

    1. Yes being done is a good feeling. I do plan to let you see me wearing both dresses, however plans for a photo shoot fell through. Hopefully I will be able to get someone to take pictures before it's time for me to write the final blog post on these.
