Description

It’s the coffee date dress sewn in white lace and a yellow knit. I omitted the ruffle, and raised the neckline. The skirt is just a rectangle with wide pleats folded in. Simple! There’s also an exposed zip in the back.

All the fabrics are vintage leftovers, and the zipper was reclaimed from an old cushion, so it cost nothing but time :)

    So sweet!! I like the way you made the skirt. A sewn garmnet has huge value for me when the cost is zero, because it is 100% creativity;)
