I used the top of the coffee date, scooped the back, put a pencil skirt on it with double pleats and made a coordinating belt. Love it!

    I was just looking into the coffee date dress and came across your wonderful creation. The low back looks great and I love those pleats on the skirt! This is very inspiring!

    love your modifications! the white and dot ruffle rocks, and love the scooped back that shows off your tattoo!

    I think the composition of ruffles from the coffee dress with the pleats on the pencil skirt is very well done! That makes the dress total! It looks great on you, and the scooped back is gorgeous (both on dress and how it show off your art work!)

    I love how your description is to the point and simple. Love your dress. I don’t think I can do polka dots but you make them look very pretty and they coordinate well with the plain fabric. .
