(500) Dates with Coffee

Orange, Californ...






My take on the fabo Coffee Date Dress. A lovely, sweet dress with a flouncy a-lined skirt and to-die-for ruffle.

I fully lined the bodice and made a longer ruffle for more ruffly ruffle goodness. I also added a waistband for contrast because this seersucker with yellow is such a lovely combination. Lastly, I added pockets because I love pockets. Pockets + Regan 4 EVR!!!!

Material Notes

I used black & white cotton seersucker for the dress, white cotton to line the bodice, and yellow cotton for the band.

      Thanks! I made that pretty easily after seeing tons of “nest” necklaces on Etsy. I just wish I would have thought it up first! :)

      Hola Georgis! Espero que esto tenga sentido. Estoy usando Google Translate ya que no hablan español. :)

      Las instrucciones para el vestido (haga clic aquí: http://selfishseamstress.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/coffee-date-dress-multisize-instructions.pdf) hacer un trabajo realmente bueno de explicar cómo hacer que el volante. La única diferencia entre ella y la mía es que hice una tira muy larga para mi volante. Sus instrucciones le indican que una corte de 36 “pieza, pero un corte de 60” pieza por lo que era mucho más largo. Aparte de eso seguí las instrucciones. Espero que esto ayude! :)

      Hi Georgis! I hope this makes sense. I’m using Google Translate since I don’t speak Spanish. :)

      The instructions for the dress (click here: http://selfishseamstress.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/coffee-date-dress-multisize-instructions.pdf) do a really good job of explaining how to make the ruffle. The only difference between hers and mine is that I made a really long strip for my ruffle. Her instructions tell you to cut a 36” piece, but I cut a 60” piece so it was much longer. Other than that I followed the instructions. I hope this helps!!! :)

    I love the added contrasting waistband! I’m working on this dress (it’s taking forever), and I might do something similar now! = )

    So cute! I never really liked the Coffee Date dress because I thought it was lacking something… What a difference a little extra ruffle makes!
