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 :)
