I made this with the Burda 7681 and fabric from ikea! The only problem with the pattern seems to be that it was too loose on the top-back so I added elastic. I like it a lot though and I have gotten many compliments. My camera sadly has died, so we will have to make do with phone pictures… :)

    Cool dress, I love how it’s put together and how the pattern works with it to become totally unique.

    I love it! I love working with the large ikea prints too as I think you get happy accidents of where the prints end up. It’s really cute!

    That’s nice! The effect of the red continuing in the bust part is confusing : )
