My version of the popular coffee date dress. The pleated ruffle was inspired by the Anthropologie “Soft Drapes Blouse”, designed by Yoana Baraschi. I added a waistband, as I found the bodice a bit short for my body. Other than that, the dress was constructed exactly as directed in the pattern instructions.
This was my first attempt at constructing a dress. Though it’s not perfect, I’m pretty happy with the results. Please excuse the blurry photos.
