Green dress – Burda Style Coffee Date Dress

It seems to me that this is the first dress I’ve made… I can’t believe it, but I don’t wear dresses very often, so maybe that’s true.

The dress was made of green linen. I’ve extended the upper part of the pattern about 5 cm to match my waist height. Unfortunately I chose too big size, which according to the size chart was supposed to be right. I altered the dress while I was sewing, which took me a lot of time. At the end I was forced to add a lining at the bottom because it was too sheer.

Pattern: Coffee Date Dress – free pattern from Burda Style

Sewing: The pattern is simple and rather quick to sew if you don’t have to apply many alterations.
