I used the coffee date dress pattern and some crazy fabric found in ikea to create my first dress.

    So cute! I saw that fabric in Ikea last year and wanted it oh so very badly, but my boyfriend dragged me out because we had to go to a concert. I’m still mad about it.

    How did you find the fabric? I was looking at the ikea fabric the other day but thought it might be a bit thick and stiff?

      It is a little stiff but it makes it hang well and its really easy to work with.
