Vintage Paisley Knit Maternity Dress
Added Dec 16, 2013
I had just enough of this cute vintage fabric to make a modified version of Butterick B5456, omitting the keyhole back, and adding a contrasting sash piece and an extra panel in back to add length. The skirt isn’t quite as wide as the pattern called for, so I only gathered at the sides of my tummy, and attempted to make an upward-curved empire waistline. This is the first dress I’ve sewn in a long time—I have plans to make a lot more but with baby #3 on the way, haven’t had a lot of time!
I used a soft knit fabric of unknown content.
