Description

This is based on the famous Coffee Date Dress, but graded up to a size 56. I used the cut and spread method of making the pattern bigger, and could probably stand to nip it in a little at the waist but I like the swinginess of it as it is!

The neckline is based on the Candy Sundress, adorable little circles overlapping each other at the neckline.

    what is the “spread method of making the pattern bigger”. I want to do the candy sundress in 38 but the downloadable pattern is in 36…

    Great combo, I really like both the Coffee Date Dress and the Candy Sundress. I only know how to make a pattern bigger for me if it fits in the neck and shoulder.

    Wow, you have some L33T pattern skills to draft it up! I love that colour on you, and the neckline is soooo cute! I don’t think I could pull of something so “sweet,” but you look divine :D

    Very nice dress, and it looks quite 60s to me (which I like a lot)! The colour is great, I love green, too!

    Nice job! The neckline is indeed lovely. Have you tried on a few belts with it?

      I was thinking about a belt, but I really don’t like them, eep!

    your neckline is crazy cute! Love the colour you chose, more people should wear green!
