Added Jul 6, 2013
I’m nearly 6 months pregnant and I felt a need for a proper dress, that would be suitable for both work and holidays and which would suit me till the end of my pregnancy.
I used the top of the Salme “Loose fitting pleated t-shirt” pattern (the first three pleats) on which I sewed a gathered piece of fabric.
The dress is large enough cos I want it to fit me till the last months, so I added a small belt in the back, so I can tie it for now.
