This is my version of elainemay’s Coffee Date Dress. This is a simple marine blue cotton fabric with polka dots. This is my second dress I ever sewed ;-) So I’m very happy with the result. I moved the waist a bit down to make it more appealing to my figure and left away the ruffle cause I think this would be too much as this is not a uni coloured fabric. Now only waiting for warmer temperatures to come here and wear it every day, winter seems to be never-ending this year.
I made it in size 36.
