The dress that’s IKEA inside and out: Butterick 6677

This fabric was another long term stash dweller but not of the too-good-too-sew variety. It’s cotton IKEA curtain fabric with a very simple bright print that Felicity loves and I don’t.

Our local fabric store had this pattern made up as a sample and that’s what inspired this make. First I thought I could find something similar to Butterick 6677 in my extensive Burda magazine collection. Then patterns were on sale. Why not give Butterick a go I said!

I made this as a size 14 at the shoulder then graded out to 16 through the armscye, and bust and down to the waist then back to a 14. A cheaters FBA. Sort of okay fit wise but next time I’ll do a real FBA.

It has pockets!

I lined the bodice and skirt with a preloved IKEA cotton sheet. Superbly soft. This makes the dress delightful to wear I’m told. I think we both also love the thought of IKEA curtains and sheets being used for a dress.

What better than a novelty button to close the back!

Such a cheerful dress. I like this fabric so much more in a dress than in my stash.

    I like this a lot. Doesn’t look like sheets at all.
