The 91st Academy Awards were last night, and you bet I tuned in to see what all the stars were wearing. The overall theme of the evening was a lot, and I mean a lot of pink – and I loved it! Read on to see my best dressed and how you can sew the looks…

These dresses I found online that people either loved or hated them… I absolutely loved them! Go big or go home, they took fashion risks and I think it really paid off.

There were multiple hues of pink seen on the red carpet and I loved this vibrant take on it. They both brought volume to the forefront, and I think they both looked stunning.

Helen’s dress changed pinks as she twirled the carpet, and it was mesmerizing to see. Then Sarah took a fashion risk with her cropped top version with waist ties – but those pockets were really the highlight.

It is always nice to see some prints on the red carpet, and I though Maya looked great and comfortable – I was just sad to only see her as the opening presenter with Amy and Tina. Was hoping for more of their hilarity throughout the show. Anyway, you can sew her bold look using our Maxi Dress with Cutouts that also utilized a summery pink print.

These stars were looking Oscar gold! Metallics are still a staple on the red carpet, and I thought all these looks really shined.

Grab some lamé to add that glitter to your next glamour project. These patterns work great in metallic that will have you feeling like a star.

Oscars 2019 STL Jumpsuit

Melissa McCarthy was by far my BEST DRESSED of the entire evening – this cape jumpsuit was everything and she absolutely owned it on the red carpet. Then of course when she graced the stage with bunnies all over her dress I was just so on board. You can recreate her iconic look by sewing up this Plus Size Evening Jumpsuit. Then all your have to do is draft and add a cape!

There were multiple suits worn by celebs last night by both men and women, but my favroite was Crazy Rich Asian’s Awkwafina. She rocked this amazing blush metallic suit complete with neck bow – and I was in love with her entire look. Sew the look with this Plus Size Suit Jacket and matching pants.

Oscars 2019 Velvet Blazers

We can’t forget about the men! Velvet blazer were spotted on Chris Evans and Jason Momoa who both totally pulled it off.

Oscars 2019 Scrunchies

What was also highly talked about was Jason’s scrunchies! I’m all for matching scrunchies for every outfit as the 80s’ is my favorite fashion decade – and you make them yourself easily just follow this DIY!

Sew this menswear look with either of these above blazer patterns to have your man looking dapper.
