A date in the cornfield

Since I made my first Coffee Date Dress last spring I made four more of them. I made this one last autom from a very soft flower jersey in green colors. I did some adjustments to the pattern. I wanted to wear this dress in autom and therefore needed sleeves. I drew them without pattern. Since they are gathered it wasn´t hard to make them, there´s not much you can do wrong with gathered sleeves. I don´t like ruffels very much so I opened the bodice front and attached buttons. You can read more about this dress and see more fotos here

    This dress is so sweet but not cutesy: it’s just fabulous. The jersey looks like a perfect choice for the shape, too.
