Hervey Bay, Qld,...
This is my first Coffee Date Dress (and my first Burdastyle project), and I’m pretty happy with it. I didn’t strictly follow elaine may’s pattern; rather I drafted my own bodice then incorporated her design elements. Also I made a couple of slight changes because I want to wear it to the office.
Black cotton linen blend, red polycotton bias binding, lined skirt.
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
