Then & Now w/ Butterick 5606
This LBD continues to give my wardrobe life. Butterick 5606 started out as an infinity dress that I had reservations about once it was completed.
However, I didn't let that keep me from wearing it. From 2011 to 2016, this dress went through some minor modifications thereby taking it from infinity to simplicity.
At one point the dress was too big and added a casing and elastic for a better fit. Then with some weight gain, the elastic was removed from the front. Fast forward a year later finally removed the remaining elastic from the back.
NOW 2016 - OOTD
Eclectified it with an animal print blazer & floral shoes
FROM 2011 to 2015
I have taken this dress & simplified it, making it a true workhorse in my wardrobe. This pattern is still available and in a simplified form, makes for the perfect summer dress, work dress and even date nite dress... give it a try... it won't disappoint.
Have a Great Week
