Coffee and Thread Madrid dress tour

It’s my first time participating in a blog/Instagram tour for Coffee and Thread. I was happy to have this opportunity to join the Madrid Dress tour because I have planed for ages to try the lovely designs of this brand and for a first time I am not disappointed at all! Thank you Claudia (Ig frl.love) and Olga (designer of Coffee and Thread) for inviting me!

This dress is a faux wrap bodice that features different sleeve styles and 3 length options (it can also be a tunic). I chose the maxi length for a bohemian style that I perfectly imagined with a viscose of my stash but as I didn’t have enough fabric I had to slightly modify the skirt. The ethnic viscose is from Lolie shop. It is incredibly smooth and has a great drape perfect for that project.

I had only 2,25 meters of fabric therefore I couldn’t make a full-length skirt as I wanted. So I decided to make the maxi skirt with 2 panels. I lengthened the first panel so it sits right above my knees (around 72 cm for this rectangle) and I shortened the last panel (56 cm).

I love the butterfly sleeves but I knew I couldn’t make them in 2,25 meters. I managed to make short ones like a flutter.

I didn’t change the bodice. I just blended size 6 for the chest with size 4 for the waist and it’s fitting great!

With the tiny scraps of fabric I made a headband for a total bohemian style. I had one complete rectangle of 15 cm x 50 cm and for the second one I made a kind of patchwork but as it is a twisted headband you can’t see the seams. I followed a tutorial found on Cultura.

This dress is really comfortable and breezy. I already imagine that I will wear it a lot in Vietnam (I am moving there in a few months). The faux wrap just sits perfectly.

The pattern is really well drafted and explained but I would not recommend it to beginners. With 8 darts and lots of gathers that’s not a quick make but it is definitely worth it!
