Maternity Wear Gone Chic

Added Jul 26, 2011

By burdastyle

New York, New Yo...






Who says maternity wear can’t be chic? Chipdale7 shows us how to take a pattern, make it fashion-forward and baby friendly. This variation is cool enough for anyone to try— whether expecting a child or not! Chie wears this dress before and after her pregnancy, as the savvy design makes for feeding her sweet little child a breeze.

This pattern variation is based on our Heidi dress— a fabulously easy dress that is a great basic shape with some nice design details and a beautiful neckline. 38 BurdaStyle members have uploaded photos their Heidi variations, have you made one?

Material Notes

For the top: Lightweight cotton, wool, blends; For the skirt: Stretch fabrics with little drape. 2 1/2 yards (2m 20cm) SELF.

    This is really cute! Is the side zipper for nursing? I’m in search of nursing tops and this would work if it had a zipper on both sides. Saeriu
