The first garment is Simplicity 2339, a traditional fitted shirt with collar, neckband, front bands, chest pocket, long sleeves, sleeve placket, cuffs, buttonholes and buttons.
The second garment tutorial is a long evening gown made with Marfy pattern 2867. The gown is advanced level work but if you are an intermediate sewer with some pattern drafting experience you might enjoy this project. Pattern drafting skills are needed because the pattern has no seam or hem allowances as well as no guide sheets or instructions.

The bodice will feature a black swiss lace overlay, red silk crepe and georgette as well. There are many methods for applying boning to an evening gown, so you might enjoy seeing how I build structure into this gown. I will spend six weeks teaching you about the construction of this gown. The tutorial will be updated regularly as the gown progresses.
The third garment is a cocktail dress made with Marfy 2845.
