This is a Burda pattern from a 2007 issue. It’s a wrap dress with pleating on one front piece to accommodate a bump. It took a whole lot of jersey to make this dress but I’m so pleased with the finished result. I made this at 36 weeks pregnant and have worn it so much in the past four weeks (I’m just days away from my due date at this point). I was a little worried about the big, bold print I chose but I think it works. I lined the dress with tricot which made it slinky and comfy inside. Love the big sleeves! Great maternity pattern if you have this past issue.
