Butterick 5488.....

Another easy and simple dress. The only thing I dislike about  this pattern is that it runs so big, I cut my usual size 14, but  removed at least 4" total to make it look flattering and I lengthened by about  2", no other major alteration, every other thing was straight from the envelop..... few hrs later I was done . Another wardrobe staple to be worn with tights and high boots.
Here is my version: I used a knit polyester fabric that's just a bit over 1 m.

Worn with cardi

No Cardi

I guess I like it more with the cardi. I wore it to work today, our weather has been so nice since Tuesday with the chinook  , but I am sure it won't be around for long, I better enjoy my dresses now......
