With just a little adjustment (made it larger especially at waistline) I turned the vintage Simplicity pattern 5557 into a maternity dress.
The original dress has back zipper and high round neckline but I dropped them both (there is no reason to have a back zipper as you can put on the dress just fine without one, especially if you use stretch knit as recommended).
