This is my version of the Coffee Date Dress on BurdaStyle. I’m really proud of this one. I took a risk with the fabric choice, and I think it really paid off. The top is a sheer mauve raised print that was really slippery and I had to line. The skirt is a gray suit-material with a subtle almost plaid-like print with a line of the mauve running through it. They look great together! My hubby was worried that they wouldn’t work, but they do!
I also learned a lot in the construction. The pattern printed out at 90%, so I had to guess a lot on what size to make and change things on the fly.
Finally, I did some new techniques. The insides have french seams, which really aren’t too hard, and leave an amazingly nice finish on the inside! Kudos to me!
Sheer mauve raised-design material for the top. For the bottom, gray plaid-patterned suit-weight material.
