Love Love Ikat dress
Added Jan 11, 2010
Ikat! I just fell in love with that fabric, so to do it justice I thought I needed to put some extra effort into making a dress out of it.
I didn’t use a pattern for it. I used a web tutorial on how to draft a basic bodice block instead. I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner, because now I finally have a bodice block that fits my odd proportions more or less perfectly!!
So I used the bodice block and for the back I simply made some cut-outs…et voil :-)
The skirt is just a rectangular with two rows of elastic fastened to the bodice. The straps in the back are buttoned with some lovely square wooden buttons.
