    Very nice, I’ve always wanted to try Ikea fabric but never have. I’ll have to get some :)

    thank you so much!!!! I’m very proud: it’s the first dress I make… :-))

    PER TAMARA: si, la stoffa è un po’ rigida, ma crea quell’effetto “vestito da bambola” che può essere interessante. il vero problema è che con questo tipo di stoffa non si può essere troppo approssimativi perchè i difetti si vedono tantissimo!!

    FOR SCHERYKA: no, there’s not a pattern. I just took inspiration from a dress I have and changed a couple ( a bit more!) of things. but since I’m a novice in sewing, I assure you it’s veeeeeeeery easy to make!

    il vestito è bellissimo, anch’io compero stoffe all’IKEA ma le ho sempre usate per giacche o borse, non è troppo “dura” per un vestito? o pesante? è bellissimo poi Fabio ti ha fatto delle bellissime foto. congratulazioni

    This would not be a lazy dress if it were mine. I’d want to wear it wvery day. Beautiful! By the way, is there pattern? It look really easy so I may not need one but I would totally screw the top.

    absolutely breathtaking and chic. That print is to die for, like a missoni print (is it a missoni? lol)

    very very nice. i got a bed sheet from ikea which is very similar to this(not as nice tho)! stunning on you, and the pattern of the fabric makes it seem so flowly.

    thanks a lot for your nice comments! if someone among you is planning to go to IKEA (floozySue!!!), I suggest you to buy not only fabrics, but also chips!!! ikea chips are great, better than pringles!!! enjoy!
