I’ve made so many versions of the forthcoming Charm Patterns Night and Day Dress at this point, so I thought I’d share some with you so you can see more of the 72 possible combinations. (See the link in my profile to preorder and use code NIGHTANDDAY for 15% off.) Both bodices can be made sleeveless and have options for either an all-in-one facing or a lining (full or bodice only). The dress on the left is very simple and one of my favorite summer silhouettes: Square Neckline Bodice and the Flared Skirt. The one on the right uses the same bodice but has the addition of the Square Collar (made in a small floral border print, swipe to see a close-up of the mitered collar) and uses the Yoke Skirt, which has beautiful gathered inset panels. Both of these are made in my border print fabrics (available at @spotlightstores and in my online shop). The pattern comes with a 70-page book with a section on using different fabrics, please swipe to see examples of the instructions on using border prints. Illustrations by @blair.stitch.project.ny. ❤️👗❤️
Note on shipping: yes, the pattern is expensive to ship internationally. This is a mega-pattern that is the size and weight of a book. Consider combining orders with friends to save money or wait for the PDF release if the shipping puts the pattern out of your budget. ❤️👗❤️
Note on sizing: please see the size chart rather than relying on a size number you’ve used from other companies. It goes up to a generous 16 (equivalent to a Butterick 22) with the addition of FOUR cup sizes. Please see the size chart and finished measurements at the link!

Swipe through the photos to see the design elements for the forthcoming Charm Patterns Night and Day Dress! Now available for preorder at the link in my profile; use code NIGHTANDDAY for 15% off for the next two weeks. Thank you for your overwhelming response to the pattern! I am so touched. There were many questions about the pattern, PDFs, shipping, etc, so please read on for more info. ***
As you may have noticed, this is not a normal pattern. It is a hugely ambitious project that has taken most of my time and resources for the past 8 months--and it more closely resembles a book than a single sewing pattern. There are 55 mix-and-match pattern pieces. Yes, you can make 72 dresses from it! It comes in a box with a large stack of folded tissue inside and also includes a 70 page book (see sample pages on the website). I carefully wrote the instructions so that you can

I carefully wrote the instructions so that you can "choose your own adventure" when it comes to finishing options. It's the size, weight, and scope of a book. *** I will be doing a PDF at some point (hopefully to coincide with the shipping of the print pattern) but it is going to be expensive for me to have designed, and probably for customers to print. It's about 10 AO sheets and approximately one gazillion letter size sheets. Of course I'll try to have it designed so you don't necessarily have to print them all at once if you're just doing one version. *** As for the international shipping: Believe me, I wish there were a cheaper international shipping option but that's what it costs me to mail it. I will say that because it is a base rate, you can order several patterns at the same shipping costs--so perhaps you can combine with friends if you would like the print version. #nightanddaydress #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie
