Ruffle Hem Jersey Dress

blackrufflehemdress7
Jersey dresses have been my saving grace these last few weeks of pregnancy, not only are they extremely comfortable but they can also be made into pretty much every pregnancy fashion style humanly possible.  I vowed I would not resort to stretch pants and long tshirts and I’ve managed to stay true to my vow I made 9 months ago.  I day dream about all the amazing clothes I plan to make after my baby is born.

This dress was made with this jersey fabric from moodfabrics.com .  It’s a medium/heavy weight 2-way stretch fabric perfect for dresses and tops.  This fabric sews and irons very well.

The pattern used for this dress was the same pattern used here and here, which is this burdastyle downloadable pattern.

The following pattern alterations were made:

-Removed the sleeves
-Added a 2″ band to the neck which connects the front to the back
-Added a 5″ wide ruffle to the hem
-Added a 9″ invisible zipper to the back of the neck

    I assume that your workout routine has changed a bit now that you're pregnant. Would you mind sharing with us what your pregnancy routine looks like? You look great!!

    Love the neckline! I have 4 weeks left, and I am with you on the vow to stay away from the sweats & tee look. I have done pretty good I must say, but I notice I'm spending more time sewing receiving blankets and burp cloths than clothes for my fall wardrobe. Good luck to you and your family!

      Thank you Taylor and good luck to you. I hide my face as I say I haven't made anything for my baby yet 🙁 I plan to get busy this week though.

    You look gorgeous!!! Love your shoes. Yes, I am sure you will make some amazing garments after the baby is born…and probably for your baby too!!

      Thank you Tomasa, a few months ago I said I wouldn't be making baby clothes but I think I'm going to eat those words 🙂

    Wow, you look amazing, down to the last detail.
    (..never really seen the point of colored toenails, until now) ;))

    Love the way the peplum ruffle balances your present silhouette!

    With the exception of your bump you don't look preggers at all. You'll drop that weight in no time because you practiced mindful eating the entire time. Can't wait for you to show us your bundle of joy. Update your IG page copiously 🙂
