Ikat print tablecloth dress

Added Jul 21, 2011

Melbourne, Austr...






Inspired by an Ikat print dress by Sass & Bide, I made my own version from a tablecloth I purchased at a trash and treasure market for $2. I used the Collette Sorbetto pattern for the top half, added length to make it a dress and an elastic waist

Material Notes

Thrifted tablecloth – maybe cotton?




Garment Type

    I love this, I’m really into upcycling at the moment. You did a fab job. Just downloaded the Collette Sorbetto pattern too as have been dying to make a top from some fabric I have.

    Very nice choice & use of tablecloth! I’m usually not a big fan of recycling home textiles, but this is a really great example. You may have changed my mind about that!

    Wonderful dress! I love recycling. At the moment I’m trying to convince my daughter that it is OK to have a dress made from a 70’s bed sheet.
