Date Night with Designer Stitch

img_3448

I am up again with another Date Night February blog tour post and this time I am featuring the ultimate in date night wear, the Pippa Wrap Dress, from one of my favourite pattern companies, Designer Stitch.

Now I cheated a bit on this one, as this is from a dress I made last fall and these pictures were taken as hubby and I snuck away for an impromptu photo shoot while attending my nephew’s wedding!

I never did get a chance to share this dress, though and it really deserves the space here on my blog. So what a better time to share it than for the Date Night blog tour.

The hubby and I don’t really do formal date nights. I am really a more down-to-earth, let’s go grab a warm drink and go for a nice long walk kind of girl and hubby is totally okay with that. So seeing both of us dressed up is kind of a once in a blue moon event!

The Pippa is the perfect dress for a night on the town. I made this out a lovely satin that has beautiful drape to it. The pattern also includes a variation to make this into a peplum top and comes in two dress lengths. The mid-length which is the version I made and a longer tea-length. It also features flutter sleeves that come in two sleeve lengths and the one I made is the longer of the two.

Here is a lovely shot of me trying to convince the skirt stay put. WARNING: be cautious about taking pictures on a really windy day in a wrap dress…others may get an image they won’t soon forget!

We had a lot of fun doing our own photo shoot that day and this dress was perfect on the dance floor. It has been a long time since we have had the opportunity to dance the night away so we squeezed in as many dances as we could!
