I made this dress as part of the “Sew Bossy Initiative,” something new on the sewing blogosphere. I swapped mystery packages of fabric and patterns with another blogger (Sophie of Cirque-du-Bebe) and had to sew what she sent me.
This is the Coffee Date Dress pattern, a new release by Pattern Runway, a company that sells PDF patterns for women’s clothing on their Etsy site. I lowered the neckline. Otherwise I pretty much followed the pattern as written.
