Notes

The Coffee Date Dress (size 32 petite) has a simple silhouette with a ruffle detail and just enough swing in the skirt to make it dainty and feminine. It’s quick and simple to make and very versatile- try it in a neutral with a cardigan for work, in navy silk for dinner out, in a fun print with a big belt for weekends, or in black or fuschia satin for a festive cocktail party.


I’m a total newbie at pattern drafting, so please forgive any errors in the pattern and let me know how to improve it. It’s currently only available in a 32 petite (sorry!), but I plan to upload a standard multi-size version too- nag me and I’ll do it quicker! For those who can’t wait, you can probably find a commercial pattern with a similar shape and just apply the ruffle as I specify in the pattern directions.


Hope you like it; if you make one, please post it so I can see it! As always, I welcome any feedback.
