Flower Garden Maternity Dress

Added Aug 18, 2008

by lunatepetal

Portland, United...






I made this dress from a vintage dress I got long time ago. I liked the fabric of the dress, but the style,,, did not like it at all! It was too big for me anyway.

So, I separated the top from the skirt, and remade that part and made it high-waist. Special thanks to maryy! I used her how-to to make the top. I haven’t finished the back yet just because I didn’t have a zipper/buttons at home…

Hope this still fits well on me after the baby is born :)

Material Notes

Vintage dress





maryy – thank you!

    It is such a beautiful dress you look fantastic in it – and I know it’s going to look just as good on you once your baby is born!

    That is great! And I’m sure it will continue to be so after the babe makes a debut. Congratulations!
