Then & Now w/ Butterick 5147

Happy Friday Everyone and hoping the snow didn't put a damper on anyone's commute.  Most importantly tho' it's FRIDAAAAAAAAAY !  New York got a fist full of snow, but it has stopped and now the sun is out.  With that, it's melting and hopefully it will all be a distant memory by the end of the day.  

Today's post is another Then & Now w/ Butterick 5147.  After sewing my first one back in 2010, I'd mentioned that I wanted at least 1/2 dozen of these dresses.  Welp!!! I have a Grey, ReversibleGrommets, FloralCharcoal & Plaid one and thinking ... just maybe another one wouldn't hurt ... right....lol


2016                                              2010

Although majority of my sewn garments are for work, one thing I take into consideration is versatility.  This dress has been worn on the weekends with a denim jacket, tights & boots.  Worn in the summer solo with flats, to work with a tailored blazer w/ my favorite pumps and of course, several wears with it as a jumper for business casual Friday.


This dress continues to give my wardrobe stability and if one is looking for a simple, but classic silhouette Butterick 5147 would make the perfect choice.

Until then,
Have a Great Weekend !

I adored this pattern too only I loved the flared dress that was included in the pattern envelope. I know that your love of the pattern definitely influenced me to take a second look at it and to fall in love with the pattern. So glad that these dresses are still working in your wardrobe. BTW, your grommet version was TDF! Absolutely stunning and what a wonderful design inspiration!
