Not quite a coffee date dress, but based on the pattern. I reduced the flare on the skirt (not enough fabric in the stash!). Unfortunately I ruined the bodice lining then managed to tear it and a small part of one the arm holes in the process – right at the front. I decided to abandon the lining in lieu of a fun binding trim which I love!! I repaired the tear and have made peace with it’s scar! I may add the coffee date ruffles in a black and white fabric (similar to the binding) – or wear it with a co-ordinating bow tie necklace from my Etsy store. Hmmm.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
