My top 10 dress patterns to make with handloom Ikat fabric

I've been deliberating over sewing patterns to sew up with our new Faberwood Ikat fabric. Handloom fabrics due to their relaxed and natural weave are fabulous and comfortable to wear in any season. They also tend to 'settle' in once sewn up and washed into a stylish garment featuring that light slub style with a worn in look. That's what I love the most about these textiles, it's in the nature, expect some mismatched threads here and there!

They are great for most things and I can go on and on with the endless supply of indie sewing patterns out there. Here I've picked my favourites dress styles that I like and that would suit our Edge Collection. You could make something with a little more volume but I think these fabrics lend themselves to less structure with a natural flow

Enjoy! You can click through on these pics for the link to these sewing patterns...

    Ooh I’ve always wanted to make the inari! Some lovely pattern choices which I’m sure would look wonderful with your stunning fabric.
