Like many of the dresses i make for the summer, this one is based on the Coffee date dress pattern. The skirt is different(cut a big square, ruffle it up, and sew it onto the top).
I was supposed to use the fabric for a costume for carnaval. But i love the print and the colours of the fabric, i had to use it for a summerdress.
The zipper(white zipper in the back)is around 55 cm long.
I added some decorative pearls in the front, and a white underlayer for the skirt.
