this is my first dress ever. i used the petite coffee date dress pattern. in hindsight i should have used a larger pattern, but i was able to make it work. i quite like the dress and fabric and would love to make another coffee date dress in another color some time.
bodice fabric is 100% cotton in a lavender and purple dots pattern, skirt is made from dark blue stretch linen.
