New York, New Yo...
I used ElaineMay’s coffee date dress pattern for this, and the only changes that I made were these three: I put an invisible zipper along the risht side seam instead of up the back. I used bias tape to finish the arm and neck openings instead of using the lining pieces. And I made a long sash belt to tie around my wait. I really love this dress and I’ll make another soon, for a friend’s wedding!
Blue and white nautical theme cotton print fabric that I bought at a vintage/antique mall.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
