Elizabeth really does sew anything that's not nailed down and her Christmas cooking feats at the moment are quite impressive. She's constantly creating and keeping her family looked after.
Elizabeth has developed and is hosting the Day and Night Dress Challenge. It's really simple - make two dresses - one for the day and one for night.
As she explains: "I’ve been wanting to get back into performing with my violin, and it’s been a number of years since I had a black dress in my closet. Though I need a black dress that’s polished and appropriate for orchestra performances, the truth is that I seldom wear black. The idea of challenging myself to make a black dress became much more appealing when I thought about making an everyday dress at the same time" Read more about Elizabeth's idea here.
Are you interested in joining the day and night dress challenge? There are two parts to it and some lovely sponsors that are providing two prizes to the winners and there's also a random vote for another prize.
There are two parts to this challenge and I'm involved in the blog tour to help get you inspired to make your two dresses.
I'm working Victory Patterns Nicola dress because it's Summer and I love wrap dresses.
When Elizabeth approached me to join in, I was already planning on making a new Summer dress for my next Minerva Crafts make so my day dress was already planned using this bold and large John Kaldor floral print.
Now to sort out the evening version in black by diving into my fabric stash. I may need to lengthen my evening version. You'll see the results of my test dress on instagram.
In the meantime I'll be checking out all the sewing bloggers taking part to inspire your creations because they've all go their own styles.
Think about this challenge and if it inspires you, join in.
