Nursing Maxi Tank Dress

Simpsonville, So...






Since having my little girl I have found myself in dire need of clothes that fit and that I am able to nurse in. I am way too cheap to spend the money they want for nursing clothes so I figured I would try to make my own. It may not be the prettiest construction ever on the inside but it’s functional and looks decent on the outside and is super comfy. Over all I’m very pleased with how it turned out. I need to figure out how to keep the knit fabric from stretching when I sew it though.

I drafted a pattern from the top of the tank and used the bottom that I cut off to replicate the front of the tank top. Since fabric was limited I had to piece the under top together. I cut the shoulder seams and attached my pieced together tank front to the shoulders and side seams. I used hook and eye closure tape that I recycled from another top for the shoulder releases. I used some very soft and flowy challis (?) for the bottom.

Material Notes

Tank top, challis
