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.

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
