    I love this dress from when it was first posted, and even have some great fabric for it, but now i think i might make it for myself while I’m pregnant. I think I will not dart the front at all, and add shirring to the empire waist to make room for baby. is there any other suggestion you might make?

      I don’t have experience with maternity clothes, but I would double check the skirt length before cutting the fabric. Your belly size might need extra length to make the dress’ hem fall straight.

    Love the dress and material…I’m a bit confused though about finding the pattern here. I clicked the PDF link and it took me to a page with just a tech-drawing on it. Is that the entire pattern?? No directions, measurements….nothing. Thanks so much.

      Hi lisasole, the instructions file is posted under Print pattern at copy shop.
      In case you can’t find them, take a look at my blog, too.
