Whenever I sewed maternity clothes, it was always with one eye on the long-term. I wanted things that would fit my shape now, but also in the future. I wanted to have the cake, and eat it.
So this maternity summer dress…
…becomes this first-night-out-without-baby winter dress:
Granted, I left out one big factor: breastfeeding, which is completely impossible with this bodice and neckline. So this dress is very occasional wear post-bump, but holds on to a firm place in my wardrobe post-boob. Onwards and upwards!
