Purple Pleasant Dress - Final

Here is the dress...


I don't think there's anything more to say about the dress that I haven't already said in this post and this one.  I'm glad that I was able to finish the second dress so that I have two options to wear with the Purple Pleasant Jacket.


Some stats:
Fabric ~
Silk border print used for the top
Purple woven used for the skirt 

Notions ~
black binding
22" purple invisible zipper
Rayon seam binding
Aubergine rayon lining

There are no new construction details to share...just some pictures...and here they are...





...as always more later!

  2. Wow, that looks great. With and without the jacket. The contrast top is a super idea, one that I might like to try.

  3. The whole look together--with the jacket and narrow belt--is extremely flattering on you!

  7. That is a lovely combination. The great is fabulous on its own, but with the jacket, it is very classy!

  8. I love this combination. The dress on its' own, and when paired with the jacket, it looks like a skirt & top. As has already been said, great outfit, however you choose to wear it.

  9. What a fantastic outfit. Now I am going to have to rethink if the last one is my favourite or this one.

  10. What a great outfit. You look fantastic in all the photos. I love your peplum jacket so much more than most of the peplum tops I've seen.

  11. Very very nice indeed. I love the top and skirt look of your dress and the peplum jacket is beautiful. The colours are perfect and they suit you so well.

  12. Great dress Carolyn. I love it with the jacket.

  13. It's definitely a nice dress, but it is absolutely fabulous with the jacket! Is this part of jungle january?

  14. I like this dress very much and it looks great with the jacket. Very polished and professional look. I really like the contrasting sleeve. It is definitely very "pleasant".

  15. When I got to the photo with the jacket, I did a double take - the jacket really changes the look. I love it. I agree with the previous comments that the jacket with the belt looks great, and the jacket with the print peeking through does too. And I bet it's so much more comfortable than a skirt and jacket suit! Inspiring.

  16. I love your finished dress! It looks so nice with the jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love your "happy accident" of using the silk print on top. That picture of you with the jacket and belt is so SMART!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gorgeous, the silk print for the top of the dress is perfect. Styled with the jacket and belt, your outfit is so elegant. Great job again, Carolyn.

  19. Very pretty! And it looks fantastic with your jacket. I'm a big fan of that deep purple color.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the contrast top and how it looks with the jacket. The belt is a beautiful touch!

    ReplyDelete
  23. LOVE that ensemble. you are seriously on a working it tear!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You look spectacular! I love this dress on you and like someone said the jacket makes it look even more amazing. Thanks for sharing! I have my sewing mojo back I guess finally having a sewing room is helping.

  25. Wow ! All the pics are beautiful but the full outfit with the jacket is just stunning !

    ReplyDelete
  26. WOW! This is the best of the best! I really like the contrast top of the dress with the jacket...wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, that looks great. What a great outfit with both dresses. You impress me!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. They look just perfect together. I know you had to mix fabric for the dress because of the jacket fix, but now the outfit looks intentional. And it's the ease of a dress with the look of a skirt suit!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Stunning! That's exactly the look I was hoping for when I suggested a skirt - but a dress is so much better. This is stunning! Simply Stunning - you and the dress and jacket. g

  30. Carolyn, the proportions of this dress are spot on!

    Flattering to the max!

    I love that when you wear the jacket, it looks like a suit (skit and blouse). But how wonderful to have the comfort of a dress, rather than deal with the bulk of a skirt and blouse (which pulls out of place during the day).

    I think you ought to consider making oodles more of these!

    ReplyDelete
  31. It all looks so wonderful together!

  32. Beautiful Outfit and love it with the jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gorgeous! And the final ensemble is extremely flattering to you. Congrats.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Love, love this outfit! I think the jacket should become one of your TNT patterns as it is so flattering on you.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I freakin' love this suit! You have to make that jacket a regular occurrence.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The dress is great (love the fabric pairing), but the jacket give it class.

    ReplyDelete
  37. THIS is really nice, gorgeous, sharp!

  38. Spectacular! Very business classy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It is a gorgeous dress in its own right, and with the jacket fastened, it does look like a really elegant skirt suit. A very flattering silhouette!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I really love this. The contrast of the print on top to draw to your face, the purple color (which I love), the fit and flare of the jacket with the flattering belt... Love It! This entire look should become a TNT for you. K

    ReplyDelete
  56. great outfit, love it. I do like a two-fabric dress, very chic.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Gorgeous! I hope you love it as much as I do. The printed top is pretty and the belted jacket looks terrific on you.

  60. Purple is your friend! and I LOVE the belted jacket look.

    ReplyDelete
  61. WOW, wow wow. What a terrific suit. You are certainly in a real designer groove these days. Just beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Omg I love this when worn as a suit with the narrow belt. I know that you have at times felt self conscious about showing your waist but this outfit is incredibly flattering! I think this is one of the most becoming things I've ever seen on you, and the dress plus jacket are so versatile. Congratulations.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh I love this, even more with the belted jacket, such a great look and much easier and smoother to wear than a separate skirt and blouse.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That is so elegant! I love it with the belt. What a beautiful silhouette the peplum creates.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Absolutely love the dress and jacket combo! Looks stunning and extremely flattering and slimming as well... I really like how it shows off a great little waistline on you. The colour is perfect on you too :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Lovely dress! I like the textile mix and of course no one can go wrong with purple. Such a wonderful color!
