Thank you for this free pattern! I just love this dress and can totally see myself wearing it for meeting with my clients or presenting my workshops. OK so it is winter here in South Africa but there is nothing wrong with getting prepared for summer, right? And it is rated Easy too which is always good. Roll on summer!

This color blocked dress is right on trend. A great way to transform a plain sheath style dress into something unique. This really may be the perfect work dress. I imagine adding a simple blazer over the dress would really be chic. The tutorial is quite easy to follow. Choice of fabric and color is what makes this dress so charming.

This is one I will have to try, because I love it-but NOT for the office, if you work in a conservative environment!

This dress pattern is so simple, yet sophisticated! It's definitely perfect for the office. Plus, it looks easy enough for a beginning sewist like myself.
