Whether date night has rolled around again or you’ve been invited to a black tie event, picking the perfect outfit can be a tricky business. Does the new dress you bought last week fit right? Will everyone recognise Old Faithful? What if someone wears the same dress as you? There’s only one sure-fire way of solving these worries – go handmade! Here are some of our favourite eveningwear patterns that we think you’ll love.
If you’re wanting to achieve classic elegance at your next party then look no further than Simplicity 6531. Stitched up in a pretty silk, this dress is bound to impress. Why not create the matching caplet and add a bit of sparkle with a jewelled bracelet and necklace?
Vintage is a fail-safe when it comes to glamming up for an evening out. This 1960’s style cocktail dress oozes subtle elegance. Why not create the perfect little black dress and accessorise with a string of pearls to channel Coco herself?
Sleek and stylish, Simplicity 1249 is made for impromptu date nights – no matter the location, and being an Amazing Fit pattern, you’ll have no problem stitching a dress that perfectly fits your figure. Throw on some black court shoes, grab a plain clutch and pop on a simple pendant for an effortlessly beautiful look.
Inject some 1950’s style into your party with Simplicity 1250, complete with peplums and a sweetheart neckline, you’ll be jitterbugging in no time. Finish the look with the accompanying lace jacket, some vintage style jewellery and matching heels.
Not feeling a dress? How about smart trousers paired with an oriental tunic? Use satin or laundered silk for extra glam. You could also colour match the detailing in the top with your chosen accessories.
