60’s Maternity Dress

In general, I don’t moan at all about the pregnancy… It’s just that I’ve been going to a Pattern Drafting course for about 6 months… and just now, when we’ve finally learned how to design and draft interesting and fitted dresses and trousers…  I can’t really because of my belly.

So anyway, I designed this dress, at least it fits my upper bodice. and is cute, I think :-)

If someone is interested, I can try and upload the pattern. The size is about 40 (burda sizes).  Please write to me if you do.

    • Thank you Marie :-) I am very lucky to live near a world class fashion college, and I think this course changed my whole attitude towards sewing. Suddenly things that always seem intimidating, look very easy now.

  1. I love the dress and I know how well it feels being able to draft it yourself – plus, excellent choice of fabric! If you manage to upload the pattern I will give it a try!

  2. So cute! This is just my style and the fabric is so perfect! If you do get it uploaded, I would love to try to make it. Thanks so much for sharing!
