Zoe Loves Marc Dress

Added Feb 20, 2009

by elainemay

Aachen, Germany






I created the pattern for this super easy dress while taking a break from drafting the multi-size Coffee Date Dress pattern. I was inspired by the Bramble dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs. I just wish I had the long legs of a runway model to really show it off! I used the BurdaStyle Zoe dress as the basis. This dress is even easier and quicker to make than the Zoe— I’ll try to get around to posting a pattern in the not-too-distant future :)

Material Notes

midweight grey herringbone rayon from my stash, 22" zipper





Dan for photos, Marc Jacobs for inspiration

    This is beautifully fitted dress, and I think your version is much more flattering than MJ’s. PLEASE make a pattern when you get a chance… I would be willing to pay for it! LOVE IT!! Thank you.

    PLEASE please please post a pattern. Its such a great dress! I’m hoping to make the coffee date dress in navy for my new job in an architecture firm and this one would look so great in a bold sophisticated print.
