    Really nice how the stripes create diagonal lines by the waist. The coffeedate dress really is quite flattering!

    This looks great, you can never go wrong with the Coffee dress… Well except if you are me.

    i need help with my coffee dress, it turned out so great, but i cant fit in it. I have so much time and love on it, my heart breaks everytime i look at it and think i cant wear it.

    Is there a way i can adjust the seams for a bit of room?

      May be you could add a piece of fabric on each side. I do it when my dresses don’t fit. It’s not ugly
