    So the dress is awesome. I have some blue striped fabric myself, and this just might be an inspiration. Also, completely unrelated to sewing, I love how you spelled out coffee date in the picture. It’s the little things that make me happy! Great work!

    Very cute dress – the stripes look fantastic! The Marie skirt suits it very nicely. I might just steal that idea :)
