This dress by Adrianna Papell sells at Nordstrom for $122. Very pretty right? Classic and feminine.
This pattern is sitting in my project stash..Butterick B5316. I bought it for $1. Of course fabric is another story but still. My point here isn't even price, the point is originality--as in, is there any left? Hmm? The only slight difference is the panel in the middle and the sleeves on the black dress are cap (capped?), which can easily be adjusted on the pattern so I'm told.
