Description

A warmer winter version of the Coffee date dress. This time, instead of a ruffled skirt, a symmetrical pattern of pleats.
The zipper(invisible zipper in the back)is around 50 cm long.
I used fake leather for pockets on the dress, and an extra decorative seam. The fake leather is not very flexible, so adding this to the seam gave the skirt volume and curves.

    I love this dress, and the fit is perfect for you! Did you have to do much alteration to the pattern?

      Thank you! This is actually my friend, modelling for me, but our size is pretty much the same:)
      I changed the skirt, instead of using the pattern, i just used a big square of fabric, and pleated it. I also lowered the neckline, in front and in the back.
