Made from the coffee date dress, I changed the ruffle detail. This is the first ever dress that I have made. Although far from perfect I am really pleased with outcome. Can’t try on yet as heavily pregnant but can’t wait to fit into it !

Material Notes






Elainemay’s great coffee date dress pattern.

    I think it is so chic. Beautiful color and the ruffle is gorgeous.
