COFFEE & COCKTAILS ANYONE???

...last year I watched in awe as Elizabeth Made This hosted her first "DAY AND NIGHT DRESS CHALLENGE".  It was wonderful seeing all the beautiful Day and Night dresses created by the 18 bloggers/vloggers who took part.  I think that challenge was my first virtual encounter with Elizabeth.  Since that time we have gotten to know each other better - she participated in my "TOPS THAT POP SEW-A-LONG" last spring; was featured in my "WHY SHE SEWS & BLOGS ABOUT IT" post last November.  We also work as co-administrators of  the Facebook group SEW MUCH TALENT(gr).

I am very honored to take part in Elizabeth's 2018 Day and Night Dress Challenge!  I'll share my process all along the way here.  I'll put my spin on COFFEE & COCKTAIL dresses, and how they translate to my lifestyle.


But guess what, you can also take part in Elizabeth's 2018 Day and Night Dress Challenge!  It's a  two-part challenge so anyone from the sewing community who blogs, or vlogs, and has an Instagram account can also join.  Read here for more information on the community segment. (Time Frame for Community Submission:  From now until March 5th)  There will be lots of prizes and random drawings as well! 
 Stay tuned.  this is going to be SEW MUCH FUN!!!
