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!
