|I actually wore this for Memorial Day, added my new favorite |
coral bag (tar-jay aka target) for a pop of color...
I am totally in love with black and white, and together to me just says fierce, dharlin'! Although being 8 months pregnant, I still like to feel sassy and a little bit jazzy! So, I knew that after my last maxi dress 6073 that I had to make another. I went shopping in my stash and found this ITY jersey from Fabricmart fabrics that I scored for $3.50 a yard, so that is a winner in my book, yass honey!

Again, this dress was exceptionally easy; however, I decided to go size this dress down from the previous dress. As I found the first dress to be a touch to big, especially the bodice area, which led me to having to alter the dress, ugh! Unlike the previous version I decided to add the binding to the dress, and I really liked that addition. I know I said that I thought that the binding was to fiddly, but the trick is you have to take your time at the "V" in the back and it will work out perfectly.

I made this dress in about four hours including the pre-treating the fabric, cutting, and sewing with breaks in between, hey, this pregnant lady has to eat lol! I wore the dress all day Memorial day and it was totally comfortable. I can't truly say that I'm done with this pattern yet, I may just have one more in me, we shall see! I forgot to mention that like the previous dress, I added the elastic in the shoulders; however, I omitted the elastic in the waist and all is well, even with all this stomach girth :)...
|Look at all that stomach, whew!|
