County Durham, O...
this dress has been finished for AGES!… but …. well it’s ‘flouncy’ and ridiculous… and it feels completely silly sitting around the house in it.
I will be making another one (because even when I don’t need the bump-room I’m unlikely to want to be dressed in tight fitting clothes) I have a feeling when I’ve toned down the colours a little and got rid of the silly frilly/misbehaving collar it’ll be a lovely comfortable nursing dress.
ok so lesson learned, don’t pair a pattern with another pattern, a flat colour for the shirt or the skirt would be slightly less ridiculous.
but meh, life is for learning – the instructions describe how to make the maternity AND non-maternity versions of this dress…
