Oscar lookalike patterns

Wave goodbye to style envy. You can dress like the stars with these Oscar inspired sewing patterns

The 2015 Oscars red carpet was full of beautiful gowns. Many of the celebrities opted for floor length and heavily beaded dresses, with many choosing vibrant shades and luxury fabrics. Of course, they have their dresses created for them by the top designers of the world, but we at Sew think it’s just as good, if not better, to make your own red carpet worthy attire!
We chose five of the best dressed stars of the evening, and found sewing patterns that you could adapt to copy their style. Click on the patterns to see more details.

Emma Stone


Nab Emma’s style with the Anna dress from By Hand London www.byhandlondon.com Add long sleeves and as much beading as you desire!

Anna Kendrick


Anna’s neckline was (pitch) perfect. Get the look with the Butterick B5182 Misses’ Dress pattern from www.jaycotts.co.uk

Lupita Nyong’o


Lupita’s dress featured a heavily beaded halter neck. You can create the same effect with ruffles for a truly stunning gown. Try the Vogue No. 1030 pattern from www.sewessential.co.uk

Cate Blanchett


Cate went for pure elegance in a simple black gown, but added a gorgeous statement necklace. If simplicity is your thing, check out the Burda pattern No. 6866 in style A from www.sewessential.co.uk

Jennifer Lopez


Jennifer does not adhere to the less is more mantra. She went all out in a champagne ball gown that dominated the red carpet. If you’re as daring, go for Misses Dress Vogue Sewing Pattern No. 2962 from www.sewessential.co.uk
