Wednesday 20 December 2006
I have finally done it. I only had about 3 things that would still fit around my pregnant belly so I sat down on the weekend and made a skirt and a dress, and they are fit to show the world. The skirt is just a metre of a paisley fabric that I cut in half from the selvedge and sewed as one long piece then gathered a bit until it fit as a wrap around so that it can expand with me. I used a piece of red ribbon around the top.
The dress was another metre of fabric that I cut a single panel for the bust and then fitted it to my chest. The skirt was just the entire width of the fabric, flush around the back then with eight small tucks in the front to accommodate me & bub but not large tucks that would look ugly. I did a rolled hem on the bottom and it kind of lettuce'd it cause the material is cotton/elastine but it still looks o.k. Hopefully they both last until the end and I will get a few more things on the go this weekend. I didn't include my head in the photo cause I am really tired at the moment and it's not a good look for the www.
