This dress is a hybrid of two patterns: the Coffee Date dress and the Afternoon Tea top….hence Afternoon Coffee Dress.
I made the little pleated trim quite thick so that it would really stand out, but i hate the way it sits a little bit funny at the centre of the sweetheart neckline…i might have to add a stitch or two to hold it flat. I added a belt that widens at the front and is nice and long at the back. For the skirt piece i used the shape of the coffee date pattern, but just made it a much fuller and then gathered it to fit at the waist.
