Maternity knit dress

Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted and I thought I'd break the silence. I've been quite busy as you can see growing a little one inside. Prior to that I decided to take a step back from sewing to focus on school and because I had such a hectic time early last year sewing my life away. I took on a job that was probably too challenging even though I enjoyed it. The time and effort I poured into it really sucked at my spirit and love for sewing. I am slowly but surely sewing and finding that joy again.

So here I am showing of my baby bump in a woven lace printed dress with a significant amount of stretch. This was the second maternity dress I made to accommodate my growth. Here I used McCall's M6886 with about 6" extra added just below the waistline if the pattern to be gathered at the side. It was a quick and easy make and the beauty is really found in the fabric.

Thanks for reading, God bless!
