Fancy Maternity Dress (with tutorial!)

No pictures of my hand-crank machine’s shuttle bobbins yet, but I promise soon! Meanwhile I’ve got another dress lined up to show you, along with a quick wallet tutorial, and a review of my Elna Grasshopper after usage!

Today I’d like to show you a dress I made from Burdastyle’s Kiki pattern. Alison from Burdastyle contacted me about creating a maternity dress from a burda pattern with tutorials, and I gladly agreed! I ended up choosing Kiki because it seemed to be made for maternity already — the front tummy part requires alteration of two seams in order to accomodate a growing tummy!

The dress has some adorable details. I love the scooped neckline in the back with the fabric covered buttons. To my delight you dont need to unbutton it in order to get it on. (There’s a zipper in the back)

I cant resist to show off — do you see all that nectarines on my tree?

And my mom (and lots of others) is funny– she keeps on wondering if i got the date wrong. My tummy looks way too big for being in 4th/5th month. My doctor said its because I am super short — the baby got no where to hide except out!

I do have a really nice and detailed tutorial up on burdastyle, so if you want to know how to make this, or just get some tips on making non-maternity kiki dress, check it!


Again, tutorial  here!
