One thing about dying with coffee is that the coffee will react with your body/ chemicals on your body as you wear the dress. I dyed a couple of t-shirts with coffee, and they looked great the first time I wore them, but they must have reacted to my sweat/ deodorant because after the fabric under my arms had completely changed color by the end of the day : ( sort of gross. If you want to, you could try it on an old t-shirt and wear it next to your skin and see if anything like that happens to you. It could have been just my copious sweating or prescription-strength deodorant. However, it is very cute as is, and I don't think you need to change it one bit!

So cute! I love it as it is, but I think a strong batch of tea would be cool!

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

I love it! I can't believe this is your own pattern, that is amazing! I love it white but if you want to dye it go for it.

Adorable dress!! I really love it the way it is, so I wouldn't dye it with coffee.

Oh, and I love the boots in the last picture! I've been searching for some like that--low heel, laceup, highish--and haven't had any luck. Do you mind telling me where you got them?
