Coffee Date Dresses, the first being the Earl Grey Dress, and now we're on to the Spicy Chai! Chai is one of my all-time favorite teas. I love that it's comforting yet also sassy and bold. And this dress is bold!
Earl Grey Dress, I modified the Coffee Date Dress pattern bodice to achieve a perfect fit for me. The armholes are deepened, and the bodice lengthened about an inch. The bodice is underlined in the voile in addition to using the facings. The peacock fabric was quite sheer, so underlining was necessary. It also makes for a surface to catch-stitch the linings to. Finally, I added simple inseam pockets to the skirt.
