Maternity shirt dress

Added Aug 4, 2014

by Winnie Nkosi

Johannesburg, So...






Working on a maternity wear range,so i thought i’d share with you guys as it has kept me busy since the begging of the year,and i haven’t been able to sew for myself.

Draw string shirt dress,out of Ramie cotton.

Drafted the pattern myself.Had to make sizes small to extra large for the shop.

And all 4 dresses were sold over the weekend#tongueout

It can be worn after pregnancy aswel,my model had to put in a fake tummy.

Material Notes

1.5m fabric,gold buttons,fusing for collar and cuffs.




Garment Type
Cotton, Shirting
