Glitz Up Your Party... DRESS!!

Last week we glitzed up your party... this week, we glitz up your party dress!

Gold metallic in unexpected patterns can add the perfect amount of dazzle to your dress...

If you'd like to re-create the look above, there are a couple options for patterns. Vogue has a good selection of retro inspired dresses-- Vogue 8789 and 2960 would both work well with the Confetti Border in Confection.

The clutch (pictured above) was made with Sleek Chevron in Glitz.
I found a great tutorial for an envelope clutch on See Kate Sew ... you'd just need to find a glitzy pin!


If you'd like to re-create the outfit that Little Miss O is wearing, just click on the links below!
The dress pattern: Burda's Peter Pan Collar Dress
The dress fabric: Quarter Dot in Mist
The collar is Cotton Couture in Bright White with gold sequins...
 I found a great tutorial over on the blog, Thanks, I Made It
(The gold jewelry is from my own stash- I pick it up whenever I see it on sale or in a vintage shop- it's so hard to pass up anything gold and glittery!) 

If you'd like to re-create Little Miss E's dress (pictured above and below) just click on the links!
The dress fabric: Confetti Border in Glitz
She had cute gold mary jane's... but preferred her bare feet :)
Gold mary jane's: Bow Ballet Flats

Happy sewing!
