This is Butterick 5860, which is the perfect maternity dress. I made this up just in time for Easter, and have already worn it three times! While cutting out the large pieces on grain was a bit of a challenge for me (I am pretty meticulous about making sure my knits are cut correctly on the grain), sewing this up was a breeze. The only change I made to the pattern was adding some twill tape to stabilize the should seam, something I learned while sewing up Sewaholic’s Renfrew.

    I love everything about this dress, the collar, the wrap style but most of all the color!

      I have always been a fan of navy, it’s my favorite “neutral” color. The collar is part of what drew me to the pattern; there are lots of wrap style dresses for maternity, but this is the only one I’ve come across with the added detail of the collar.

    Your dress is nice on you! I also take forever to lay out and cut knits. You are looking great!

      Oh thank you so much! I think I would sew with knits more often if the cutting process wasn’t so time consuming, at least the sewing part is always faster.
