hello, have we met?

So I made another dress - all by myself and with no big mistakes!  I even followed the pattern instructions for a change!  This dress was made using the same pattern as my red floral one.   What do you think of the fabric?  It's from Ikea, it's pretty crazy.  It has flowers, bananas, cocktails and er, lobsters on it!  I really love Ikea fabric, if you've never thought of looking before, I thoroughly recommend giving it a try.  I think that this dress pattern is slowly becoming a favourite.  I might try a plain version next time.
I might wear it tomorrow night, I'm going to see Jimmy Eat World (cue nostalgic sixteen year old gig excitement!).

  2. This is really lovely! It's cool when you find a pattern that works for you and that you like making again and again! Enjoy Jimmy Eat World! I saw them in London last year and they were great doing all their golden oldies, but I wasn't a fan of the newer stuff. They're still good live though!

  4. Oh gosh I love this dress so much, the Ikea fabric is spot on, I love quirky prints like this. I have a duvet cover I want to sort of make into a dress, but have no idea where to begin. Help xxx
