I used Megan Nielson’s maternity top pattern to make this dress.
I think the top is great for the third trimester pregnant body. So, I decided to do a Chie remix of the dress for a couple of reasons. First I do not have jeans that fit me comfortably any longer so I needed to find a way to cover my bottom half. Also I wanted to make it a bit dressier because I planned on wearing this on my baby shower, which had to be canceled….because of the earthquake. So using Meg’s pattern, I made some alteration and turned it into a dress.
I used two-way stretch jersey in peach color. After finding out that I’m pregnant with a baby girl, I find myself wearing more pink – Not sure why, but I want to feel girly in pink and peach and all that pretty colors of Spring.
I wrote a brief tutorial on how I turned the top to dress on my blog here
