Astoria, New Yor...
Followed the coffee date pattern except eliminated the front ruffle. Accidentally cut out the back on the fold, so had to incorporate the zipper into the side seam. Lesson learned: it’s hard to fasten a hook-and-eye closure under one’s arm so next time remember to cut back with seam allowance for zipper! The fit on this dress is fantastic so will surely make it again.
