Little Red Maternity

Added May 30, 2009

by maldrich

Travelers Rest, ...






A crossover front faux wrap dress made of red jersey. This pattern has a perfectly drafted neckline with no gaping! I made this for Maternity by flaring out the waist to the next size up to make room for belly. However, I am extremely long waisted and knew this “waist” would hit along my empire line rather than at my waist. Also, I would recommend going down at least 1 size and maybe 2 (depending on how much wearing ease you prefer) because there is far too much wearing ease in this pattern for an elastic material.
I love it this dress and the skirt twirls!

Material Notes

Red Jersey, Clear Elastic to stabilize shoulder seam
