Coffee date dress in red rose print fabric I picked up in charity shop for £1.
This is the second one of these I’ve done and I love this pattern.
The only changes I make are to the bodice length. I think it could have done with being a smaller size this time as it feels like it moves when I wear it.

I also made the bunting on the fence :)

    Love the dress and the combo with the red cardi! Reading the title, I thought for a moment you were alluding to Thea Gilmore (my absolute favourite singer-song writer). She’s got a song called “Coffee and Roses” ;-)

    What a sweet dress, it’s allways nice when you have such a good result with very cheap fabric!

      I was getting impatient for the picture to be done, we had to get to nursery and my husband was messing about with the camera!
