Announcing the Night and Day Dress Design Contest!

Big news! To celebrate the release of the Night and Day Dress, I’m running a design contest with a fabulous prize. As you may know, this pattern is a mix-and-match extravaganza with 72 potential designs. Where does one even start with that many options?! To help get your creative sewing ideas flowing, I’m having a friendly little competition. The winner will get a $100 gift card to the Charm Patterns store. (That could certainly get you some patterns and enough fabric to make a new dress or two!)

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Download the Design Your Dress template. This includes a croquis to sketch your design, a yardage calculator, and all of the design options.
  2. Sketch up your idea for a dress on the template, using whatever medium you like. Use the design elements from the pattern and have fun with trying different combinations and using color and trim. Take a picture of your sketch (feel free to include fabric swatches, inspiration photos, whatever you like!) and post it to either Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #nightanddaydresscontest. (Make sure your post is public so that I can view it.)
  3. Repeat as desired! Enter as many times as you like.
  4. Make sure you are following me on either Instagram or Facebook (whichever platform you uploaded your entry to).
  5. I’ll pick a winner based on creativity and overall design.

Entries must be uploaded by the end of October 8th, 2018. I will announce the winner by October 10th, 2018.

Good luck! I can’t wait to see your dresses.
