This flowery summer dress is made from cotton Voile. Its still winter here (but sunny today) and as you can see I’m 8 months pregnant but by the time summer comes round I won’t have the bump and am looking forward to wafting around in this. It would work as a summer maternity dress too. I love the yoke and pintucks which give a really nice fit (I think my tucks weren’t big enough but it didn’t matter, i just cut a bit off the arm holes.) Really love it.
I put an invisible zip in but it doesn’t need it and I can get it on even now without using it. Think I will have to make a tunic version too.
