Canaan, Trinidad...






A mild variation of the Coffee Date date dress by Elaine M. Huang

I used the bodice but changed the the skirt to a full circle skirt for a more formal finish.

Charmeuse in a rich eggplant colour.

    Soooo beautiful! In which way did you hemmed the skirt? I guess, you made it with your serger?

      Nope. I hemmed the skirt with a straight stitch (# 2) and very close to the edge of the hemline for a flat finish. And then I steam pressed down on the wrong side.

    I love the color and you fitted it so nicely. I like it better with the full skirt!
