My first dress! Using the lovely, Coffee Date Dress pattern by elainemay. I would recommend it to a friend. Please see her post of this pattern for further description and details. My only change was adding a small pleat stemming from each dart. I think you can see the 2 front pleats in the close-up photograph of my bodice.
Also, tamalicious16 hosted a very helpful sew along of this dress on her blog. She calls her version the Picnic Date Dress.
