Coffee Date Dress Try #2

After watching The Fashion Show last season I was inspired by the winner Anna. Her creations are colorful, feminine and inspired by nature. Like the designer I want to be! So in honor and in inspiration I present to you my Coffee Date Dress. Well I guess it is more like an Espresso Date Dress because of the loud print. Since I don't drink coffee it should be my Date with the 60's Dress. It turned out a little too 60's Austin Powerish, but oh well. This is another burdastyle pattern I printed from the website. Ruffles seem to be back in fashion so how can you beat a seafoam colored ruffle. The ruffle is linen and the print is a cotton fabric in eggplant purple by Alexander Henry. I added 2 orange buttons (that my Mom brought back from Europe for me) on the back. Some fun things I got to learn how to do for this dress are: the invisible zipper in the back of the dress, an all-in-one facing, and the hem has a machine blind stitch. Your wondering where you wear such a loud dress like this, well I am going to wear it with the ladies of course and we will probably get into all kinds of Shenanigans. I have to say this has been a very hard dress to make and I thought it would have been easier since I have already made it once before.

P.S. My photo shoot was on the roof of my apartment.
