Friends, I need your help. Go vote for me: CLICK HERE and scroll to the bottom to vote! For this weeks challenge we had to make two different articles of clothing, that create a day to night look. I interpreted the challenge to be more of a style challenge, challenging us to create two pieces that can be mixed and matched for anytime of day. To see my first two entries in the competition go here and here.
Since fall is rolling in where I (usually) am, I wanted a cute sweater I could wear til winter. Mccalls 7476 is going to be my go to sweater pattern. I love how easy this sweater came together and I have dreams of making it in a dark olive green. The length is perfect for my tall height and very on trend right now. I used a quilted black knit that is just beautiful for a sweater pattern like this. It was a bit tricky to sew without my serger but I zig-zag stitched every edge!
The shirt is fun and flirty for a night out, but pairs well with a sweater for work. The mustard fabric is also perfect for fall! I like the bow tie on the front and have a few other shirts like this in my stash. Mccalls 7601 came together fast and has options that include something longer or a high neck without the bow.
For they day look, I paired these two memade projects with my favorite black jeans. They are so comfy and are super skinny jeans I have had for a while. Throw on some comfy loafers and I’d be ready for a day at the office.
For the night look, I was thinking realistically. I usually head out straight from work. So I rolled up the jeans and threw on some cute, but comfortable heels. I’m not really one for a wild and crazy night out or for wild and crazy heels. But I do love some chunky block heels that I can actually walk around downtown in. It gets really cold at night so the sweater can stay on or come off depending if we are headed somewhere outside. These two projects were sew fun and make me ready for fall. I am going to mix and match these pieces with my closet favs all season long. Make sure you vote for me here, voting is only open for the next two days!
