Tara dress with Ikea fabric

Added Jul 9, 2008

by nenasew

Florida, United ...






I tried to recycle a white skirt that was kind of plain. I like the circular pattern and tried to match it with the Ikea fabric. I also tried to close the v on the neckline. Its too hot in Florida to wear extra clothing underneath (like a tank). Anyway, recycling is hard. It is tedious work to undo seams but well worth it in the end.

    if you don’t mind my asking, how did you size the bust? I am busty, about 43 inches, and the pattern only goes to 39 inches and I was wondering if you had any advice. Sorry to bother you…

    Beautiful! I’d love to know how you closed up the v-neck too! Was thinking of doing a Tara Top too but like you said the heat here is SC is too much to wear a tank underneath stuff for modesty.

    I love how you’ve dressed up that plain white skirt! Ikea fabric is the best to do recycling with! How did you close up the v-neck like that? I’m not really a fan of letting all my goodies hang out :)
