I made this dress with the growing belly and future need to nurse in mind. I winged the pattern drafting and the bodice is a bit too saggy in places unfortunately. I think it might be bad elastic sewing. I’m not fussed enough to fix it.

Polka-dots seems to be the pattern of my pregnancy. Off the top of my head I have at least 6 preg-friendly tops or dresses in dots.

      Thank you so much! I just read all you’ve had to deal with the past few months. Following your posts on Instagram I didn’t know it was so complicated! I’m so glad there’s light at the end of the tunnel for you finally. <3
