Gabrielle-10_large

Description

A new maternity dress to enjoy summer !
This time I went for breton stripes printed jersey and I altered the pattern of Gabriel tank top from Marie Poisson’s book “Coudre le stretch” into a dress.

I lengthened the front piece by 15cm and added gathers at the side to adapt to my growing belly. The book is the perfect tool to start with knits and you will learn many tips and tricks to master any knit project.
