I saw this fabric at Ikea several months ago and got it, having no idea what to do with it!  Well, I used 1/2 a yard for this dress- only 2.5 more yards to use Smiley

Anyhow, I used it to make another shirred dress for my daughter.  I was out of black ribbon, so I used red for the ties.  I think I actually like it better than if I'd used black because it brings out the bit of red in the fabric.  Anyhow, here it is Smiley  OH!  I did shorten the ribbons a bit after taking the pictures.

That is fantastic, do you get the Ikea family magazine, we do in the UK and i`m sure you can send pics of what you make with their fabrics to them. Grin

I'm lazy, so I'll respond to all of your new posts in here.  Smiley The clothes are all adorable!  I love the soft little t-shirt pants and the cute little kimono top.  I especially love this dress, though!  I wish I had an Ikea within 500 miles!  What great fabric!!

That looks so fresh and amazing, I'd expect to see it in a store.  My husband is always doodling chickens (I dunno!) and he would really love this!

I don't really know what shirring(?) is so I have some studying to do.

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley
