So in love with Purple

OMG! I am so excited for spring ! I want my closet to be full of colors and most importantly, full of colors I love. This season I am in the mood for worry free clothing. I think this will fit my new lifestyle as a new mommy!!!!! So to kick start my spring sewing we have Butterick 5351
I made View D in a purple Rayon challis. This pattern is super easy. But in all fairness I did not sew this dress according to te instructions. Like I said, I wanted this garment to be worry free. I omitted the zipper in the back but added extra space in the bodice pieces . I added elastic to the top as well as to the middle where the bodice meets the skirt part. Talk about easy-peasy sewing. This dress is so easy. I can see this as a bathing suit cover-up and definitely with a cardigan when running errands. I love it. I can see another one already!!!!

Love that purple and the drapeness of the fabric. The dress will look fab with one of your great cardigans!
