Coffee Date dress made as drafted except i lowered the neckline and made a little window in the back so that i could use a shorter zip …this is such an easy pattern – i love it!

    i too had been wanting to do coffee date dress for a long while now. I had the same idea of having some kind opening at the back for the dress as it is too hot where i live and can’t really afford closer necklines. Thanks for the inspiration…. nice dress.

    and regarding shortening to accomodate zips, dont’ u worry, i guess u would be in a big league who are doing the same thing, i am for one sure…. who have done the same thing many a time with lengthy invisible zippers almost unavailable in matching colors

    Great solution, the keyhole is an eye catcher!
