Back when I was 4 months pregnant with Aeralind and Bronwyn, I sewed up Vogue 1027 in some Ruby Red Cotton Jersey. I cut my size in the bust and eased the bottom out to the next size up to add a little room for the babies’ belly. I wore it all the time!
No really, I promise I had a baby belly in these photos, the dress was just that flattering! I even wore it for our church picture directory photo 2 weeks before I delivered the girls. I almost wish I was pregnant again so that I could wear it. Almost…
There was very unfortunate problem with this pattern: it had way too much wearing ease for a garment made from a knit fabric and, therefore, had quite the case of gaposis at the bust. Fortunately, I had just enough of that wonderful red jersey leftover to make a spring top!
It’s not as fun to twirl in, but it’s definitely more modest (especially since I tacked the crossover closed) and super comfy! I think I’ll be revisiting this pattern again in the future. 😉
