    This is just adorable! I wonder if it would work it a stiffer material, something that could contain my ahem ample bosom. Also, at the shoulder, is that shirring, or is it gathering? I can’t see it that well in the pictures.

      I think a stiffer material could look great. You should try it! And it’s gathering at the shoulders. :)

    please post instructions or what pattern you used. I think I’ll make one after my baby is born! It will be incentive to get back in shape :)

      finally got around to posting instructions. (although you’ll have to bear with me, it was my first time writing any and i don’t know how understandable they are.) i hope you end up giving it a try! :)

    Upon closer inspection, is this one piece of white fabric ?

      it’s actually two pieces for each side of the bodice, one piece for the bottom, and one brownish/black piece too. :)

    Hi! Good Job ! Did you sew this with a sewing machine or a serger?

      Thanks! I used a sewing machine with a walking foot attached.
