You could totally make this.


Honest.

The tutorial will be posted here over the next few weeks, but I am not that patient. I wanted to wear mine today. So I had to wing it. I am sure it would have turned out better/been easier if I had waited for all of the instructions first. Oh well.

I used a remnant of fabric marked as "linen" from my favorite fabric store (Sally's for all you locals - they have the best service, a ton of fabric, and they take Joann's coupons!). It has some stretch in it, which is ideal for maternity wear, of course, but I don't think it is really linen. After I washed it, it ended up kind of crinkly, which I love. Plus, since it was a remnant, it only cost $1.73. Score. The only problem was that I didn't have the full 3 yards the tutorial called for. So I had to make do with what I had.

If you happen to see me out and about in the next little bit, chances are, I'll be wearing this shirt. It's that comfortable.

I think it would be super cute even if you weren't sporting a ginormous belly like me. You should make it.

And now we are headed to the park. Because this day is just too lovely to spend indoors.

Have a good weekend!

  7. Stephanie, that's just plain adorable. I'd wear it lots too. And maybe make another? Could be a cute black linen dress a bit longer?

  14. that's so cute, steph, and the fact that you don't have to set in a sleeve is very attractive to beginner seamstresses like moi. you look so cute in pink!

  16. You are so cute pregnant - and as much as I wish I could make something like that - I don't think I have the chops.

    Why do you have to make everything looks so darn effortless.

    You make me want to learn to sew... I guess that is a start. Good work, I would totally buy that in a store if I could.

  17. Thanks for the link to this dress. My mom winged it too and made it for me yesterday! (Her sewing skills are FAR superior to mine) I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear it!

  19. I wish I had gotten on that back when they started the sew along. Now that I'm 36 weeks it seems kind of silly to put forth the effort when I could go any time!

    I did, however, make the belt from the previous month. I love their sew alongs!
