Based on the ever-so-popular Coffee Date Dress, with inspiration taken from all the cute open-backed dresses I’ve seen recently. Dress is unlined with facings at the neck and armscyes, perfect for when it gets warmer!
bodice front: lowered and widened neckline, brought in darts more
bodice back: drafted by me
skirt: original skirt, 2 baby pleats in the front to bring in an inch of extra fabric
Hand-stitched an invisible hem (needs an iron, I know), lapped back zipper inserted by machine. Hook and eye closure at the top of the zipper.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
