Yikes, sorry for the wonky photos. I’m pregnant, but not THAT wide (yet!).
I actually got to make myself an Easter/ Pascha dress this year. I used the Darling Ranges pattern by Megan Nielsen. I made slight modifications to make it suitable for maternity wear— hoping it’ll fit throughout the rest of my pregnancy!
I wore it to church with tights and a cardigan— it felt a bit short, at least for my taste. So today I wore it again with jeans for a more casual look. File it under: I’m pregnant—whatever works, works!! :D
(sorry for the wonky photos….!)
I was able to line it with a very lightweight cotton. Even lined and with the buttons, this was a satisfying, fairly quick project. It’s simplicity (only four main pattern pieces!) allowed me to focus on construction and craftsmanship.
To those who celebrated Easter/ Pascha today (according to the Eastern Orthodox calendar)— Christos Anesti! Khristos Voskrese!
Now? I’ve got two more Darling Ranges cut out and ready to sew. Yippee :D
