Everyday Dress - Purple


Purple is my favorite color. Here's Butterick 5078 in an everyday dress. I used polyester lycra from Metro Textile in NYC. Easy to execute. This will be an excellent work dress. Wash and dry. I can wear with a jacket or not. My matching purple pumps are in my shoe closet at work (I commute in flats or boots, normally, and change into my high heeled shoes when I get to work). So I'm showing it with boots, so you can at least see the dress!

nice! i really like this print. :)
i wish Metro were open on the weekends, I have the worst time trying to get over there when it's open, and seeing dresses like this always make me wish I could go stock up!

Muy linda! Beautiful print and dress. I love the ease of wearing a knit dress!

Love it! You are really working that length, which is difficult for most people.

Ditto what Lisette said (my Spanish is rusty, but I do understand that!). I hope you bring the dress to Chicago when you come!

Wow! I am really behind in my reading, and I'm glad I saw this post. What a beautiful dress. Fast and fashionable dressing at its finest.
