    How much fabric did you need for the dress?

    The nicest of the Coffee Date Dresses that I have seen so far! I like that your ruffle isn’t too massive. This pattern looks really good as a sun dress!

    Well done! It’s very pretty and doesn’t look like a first project at all, you’ve got talent :-)! And the top is nice too…

      Thanks! I’ve just finished making your afternoon tea top (many thanks for the free pattern). I actually made it into a fitted dress instead of a top and love it! Will upload a photo once my boyfriend has time to photograph me!

      Thanks shoegal! It was a free pattern, the coffee date dress, the instructions were also with it (if you search coffee date dress the pattern comes up). Wasn’t too difficult, there’s a good how to on sewing the all in one interfacing.
