45/52 Yeah I Made It... The Ikea Dress

I have always been drawn to this fabric on my trips to IKEA here. In the end I bought some and then after making the Simplicity stretch dress I decided to use the same pattern but add a zip.

It's not the best fit - which is to be expected going from a stretch pattern to a non-stretch. I also had to re-cut the neck because it sat ridiculously high. Nor is it the most flattering dress I've ever whipped up but you know, who gives!

Still it's fun and I love the fabric. I even worked on the pattern placement so I didn't end up sporting a womb or 'mammary glands' which could have happened with this design.

love you more than an awkward pattern placement avoided xxx
