Cynthia's Coffee Date Dress

Added Apr 12, 2009

by cynthia-1

Wollongong, Aust...






I made the bodice out of a sheer, cream fabric and the skirt out of a floral-patterned crepe. I lowered the back neck, modified the darts to fit and modified the skirt so that it was less A-line. Somehow, the bodice-skirt seam sat so that the bodice “puffed out” and gave the illusion that this dress was a sheer singlet tucked into a high-waist skirt!

Material Notes

Bodice : “Berlin Sheer”

Skirt : Floral crepe




Garment Type


Coffee Date Dress

    This is shockingly lovely. I made one of these recently and it turned out several sizes too big, despite my obsessive measuring…oh, well. Better luck next time for me! Your dress is gorgeous!
