Day & night dress challenge

Or ‘the challenge that keeps you learning’.

That’s how I see Elizabeth Farr’s yearly Day and Night Dress Challenge. This year’s theme was not to make a dress. Nope. Here is this year’s recipe in my case, the Yoyo dress.

Step 1: Take a dress you’ve made but neglected.


A lot of work went into making this dress so that it worked for my petite frame. I added pockets and this print is such a classic. But I want to wear it more.

This dress was made as part of my ongoing sponsorship through Minerva Crafts. They have sponsored by hobby for over 5 years now and I am very grateful for their support.

The dress is only a year old and I’ve worn it once to work but I want to wear it more as it’s great with this humid weather.

The dress is great in the heat but when I wear it in the office, the air con can give me the shivers across my shoulders.

Step 2: Create your day look. How you do this is your choice.

Step 3: Create your night look. Again, you choose what this is.

And that’s all you need to do.

Go to Elizabeth Farr’s yearly Day and Night Dress Challenge and you’ll see what I whipped up this year!

Things to note to be counted as an official entry:

  • Your extra items must be something that you’ve made until March 17th when the community challenge ends.
  • Post a picture of your day look and your night look to Instagram until March 17th. If you’re shy, you can totally post a pic of your dress form donning your looks!
  • When you post your looks, tag Elizabethmadethis on Instagram @elizabethmadethis with the hashtag #dayandnightdresschallenge to be entered for a prize.
  • Prizes will be drawn randomly from the pool of entrants after March 17th.

I hope you do join in.
