My plus size coffee date dress

London, United K...






This was a free pattern downloaded from the Burda website. Obviously I’ve had to adapt the pattern to fit my fuller figure! Considering I’m a novice, I don’t think I’ve done too bad a job. The fabric is a cheap pink and brown dotty fabric.

Material Notes

Polka dot cotton fabric in pink/brown.

    I loved the way you have positioned the ruffles, and you altered the pattern way better then I did!

      Thanks. The fabric was from my local market stall. It was quite hard to adjust the pattern. I based the sizing on another pattern I already had in my size. I do love a challenge!
