Match Your Shoes Contest

PatternReview.com is kicking off a contest to make an outfit to coordinated with a pair of shoes.  After looking a about a zillion pairs of multi-colored, embellished shoes that I could coordinate with, I realized that I’m not a person who wears embellished, statement clothes.

(UPDATE: My green dress took 2nd place in the reader voting.  So honored!  Love how these contest deadlines get projects off my to-d0 list and into my closet.)Then I found this combo – suede stillettos, matching ponte knit, slightly draped sheath dress styling and custom-made zipper to add into the side seam.  I’ll show you the results as soon as it’s completed…


Here’s the finished product. The shoes are a brand called UNISA that I buy through DSW stores or DSW.com.  Fabric is  our wonderful ponte knit in Dark Hunter green.  If you’re interested in the sewing details you can find them HERE.

    Wow! I love that color. What would you call it? I’d think I’d call it mallard.
