The Blue-Purple-Green Dress

Razblint - Dress - Blue and Green with pockets Coffee Date Dress from BurdaStyle (1)

With pockets!  I started on Friday night, finished it Sunday evening, with Saturday off.  The pattern, I used BurdaStyle’s free Coffee Date Dress pattern (by Elaine May) as a basic guide — for the skirt and part of the bodice.  But I improvised the waist strip (to use my favorite new fabric, that again came from St. Bernards Ladies Sewing Circle scraps), the neckline, and the pockets.

For the neck, I used former black stockings, for the skirt a nice light stretch denim, new from JoAnns.  And the bodice — a blue nylon-spandex, that was a 60 cent scrap piece from JoAnns extras bin.  I love this dress!
