Description

This is the “Melanie” dress pattern, by Republique du chiffon (from the book “Un ete couture”), that I made 2 months after I gave birth to my son. I’m still overweight compared to my pre-pregnancy shape, so I kept the dress a bit loose on the waist, but the front zip makes it breastfeeding compliant.
It’s “almost” a Melanie, cos I modified the neckline and omitted the sleeves…

Please see my blog for more details.
