Wellington, New ...
Made using a vintage maternity pattern, Weigels 1703 , which I’m guessing is from around the late 1940’s/early 1950’s. This is quite a neat pattern – the pleats at the front fasten with hooks and thread loops, and can be let out as a baby bump grows (thus not being too tent-like until you need it to be!).
There are more details over on my blog
100% cotton (craft weight), with cute little travel icons all over it. Fastens with four mis-matched burgundy buttons. Hooks and thread loops form the four more central front pleats.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
