Description

My first time at the Coffee Date Dress from the multi-size pattern, by the very talented Elaine May (AKA selfish seamstress, check out her blog she’s hilarious http://selfishseamstress.wordpress.com/). I made two of these up, sans-frill, back when we had some good weather. They aren’t the most sophisticated versions of this dress I will admit, but they made great basic summer dresses! This pattern is really lovey and simple to use, and the shape is very flattering too! There’s no instructions for the downloadable pattern, but Grosgrain did a great sew along for this as part of her “Frock By Friday” feature, and her instructions are very helpful (http://grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com/search?label=coffee%20date).

    Basic summer dresses are always useful and both look very good. I particularly like this version beacause of the fabric choice!
