Retro-Chic Maternity dress

Added Sep 19, 2011

Tampa, United St...






Since I haven’t found any maternity patterns I love….and maternity clothes are so expensive….I decided to draft and make my own dress! After making a million I realized…..Making my own pattern cant be that hard…and its not! Besides….no one makes vintage inspired maternity and thats really all i want. I wore a petticoat for volume, which incidentally makes it hard to tell there is a baby bump.

The zip is a 22 inch invisible zip in the back. The skirt is basically two rectangle panels gathered to fit the 4 inch thick waist band that connects to the boat neck bodice. The sash is removable.

    Your beautiful dress almost makes me wish I were pregnant again….I say “almost” and if I were to tell you how very sick I was through each of my pregnancies you would be in no doubt about the compliment I just paid you!
