Three Awesome DIY Dress Projects from our Photo Contest!

August 29th, 2013 Nick of Time Textiles

Thank you to everyone who participated in our garment photo contest! Sadly, there can be only one winner, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t receive a plethora of entries to love, adore, and share! This week’s blog post focuses around three AWESOME outfits we’d love to see more of in the future!

Lori KC’s Lightweight Black Jersey Dress

diy dress pattern fabrics and contestsUsing lightweight black jersey fabric, Lori submitted this dress from a collection she made over the spring. We liked this dress because of its embellished V-neck and its sassy hi-low cut. Great Job Lori, here’s to a thousand reasons to wear your remarkable creation!

This is a dress from a collection I made over the spring with a light weight black jersey that I purchased through the wonderful nickoftime.net (with some of my own detailing at the bust). Love this company!!“

Hope Sedel’s Haute Princess Dress

Using Lace and Lycra from our store, Hope created the perfect princess dress for any event.




Liz Bell’s Functional, Fashionable Utility Dress

This dress is adorable, and useful! With a removable shrug, the Utility Dress is the perfect transition to autumn fashion; go sleeved or sleeveless! Liz made this dress with polyester/cotton poplin.

The Utility Dress is an original design I created that combines fashion and function. I used a gunmetal waterproof polyester/cotton poplin that I found at Nick of Time Textiles to form the body of the dress. As you can see in the image, the underlayer is a reversible shrug that can be attached and removed at the armhole to allow for the dress to be worn as a light jacket or on its own.”
