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.
