Description

Not much to say: I used the coffee date dress pattern (thanks Elaine!) and didn’t really make any alterations to the pattern. I chose not to line the dress as I only plan to wear this casually, seams were finished with a pinked edge. Included an invisible zip + hook and eye.

Next time I will use a lighter weight fabric, especially for the ruffles as the thicker fabric created a little too much bulk around the neckline even when graded. I would love to make this dress again and slightly alter the bodice to better fit my body shape. It’s a beautiful simple pattern to work with.

Material Notes

I’m not sure what type of fabric this is. I fell in love with the pattern and texture of the fabric and unfortunately raced to the counter without even looking at the fabric/fiber information.

I’m assuming thought that it is perhaps a portion cotton, and a portion elastane as it has some degree of stretch to the fabric. The fabric also melted easily?
