WHAT I WORE | Maternity Style – 16 Weeks
Wahoo! We’ve made it all the way to 16 week! To me, this means only four more weeks before we discover whether the little being growing inside of me is a boy or a girl. Couldn’t be more excited.
In the meantime, I’ve been wading my way through frustrating sewing patterns (I’m much more used to reading blueprints!), attempting to alter patterns, and breathing a sigh of relief that my first creation turned out well! Welcome to my hand-made maternity style. I’m hoping there will be lots more creations to come!
I started and finished this dress last Saturday, as I was really motivated to have a fun dress to wear on Easter Sunday. Reminds me of being a little girl and the excitement that came with getting a new frock for the Spring holiday.
I found the fabric on Etsy (Which, by the way, it’s pretty tough to nail down multiple yards of the same vintage fabric there! Lots of time involved!), and also purchased the maternity pattern on Etsy. My mother and I did some tweaking to the pattern using this website, and found that it worked out pretty well! I did have to take it in a bit when the bodice was done, but better too much fabric than not enough!
So exciting! I’m a seamstress now! Check out my happy dance below, if you will.
