Purple Shirt dress

A few of you asked about the purple shirt dress that I made when creating the winter shirt dress tutorial.  Well I finally got around to photographing it.  Here it is:
I got the knit at the fabric district and I love the tiny light purple stripes.  I thought about embellishing the top a little more, but I think the ruched sleeves are enough.  I like the simplicity of it.  You can find the full tutorial for making this dress here.
