A little something for a summer Christmas in Australia. This dress was loosley based on the Coffee Date dress, but without enough fabric, I cut the skirt without flare and created a casual, but pretty summery cocktail dress, ideal for our tropical garden Christmas lunch!!!
Instead of facing the top, I used contrast binding around the neck and arm holes. Too cute!
Floral cotton fabric and contrast binding.
