Butterick 5672 Lace Dress

Hello Everyone ! 

Sharing another of what I like to call sustainable fashion garment... Modified Butterick 5672 Then & Now.




 As I've mentioned before, I love sustainable fashion.  It just continues to give and give and works seamlessly for any occasion.  It's just a matter of playing up the accessories or playing it down with little to no accessories, casual foot wear and topper.





What really makes this garment sustainable is the simple silhouette that is flattering and practical.  No woman should be without a sheath dress because its versatility is unmatched.


This dress over the years has been paired with a blazer, cardigan, moto jacket and even a jean jacket and love how it worked so well with each pairing. Rocked with high heels, ballet slips and even sneakers.





Fast forward to 2017  and this lace sheath dress is still in-the-now.  I just love the drama of the see-through effect especially when the underlayer is another color. 



After wearing this dress, my sewing mind has been conjuring up lace pants.  Yes, I know its not something one would consider sustainable fashion...lol.  However, having a unique piece in my wardrobe is an added bonus.  Of course, nothing scandalous, but wide leg pants with a contrasting underlayer would be so sharp!




Thinking even further, lace pants with a cold shoulder top would make a fabulous ensemble  for my B-day !  Off to ponder this some more....

Until then,
Have a Great Day !!!
