DIY Jersey Tunic

When I spotted this beautiful Dior dress worn by Emma Watson to the Golden Globes, I completely fell in love.  It was simple and beautiful at the same time, and absolutely maternity appropriate. In an attempt to recreate my version,   I used this bamboo jersey from Moodfabrics.com along with a black jersey I had in my stash for the belt. I’m making every effort to create a maternity wardrobe that will easily transition back to pre-pregnancy life.

The pattern I used for this tunic was Butterick B5454  with the following alterations:

-Faced the entire bodice and left off the sleeves
-Removed 3″ from the bottom wrap portion of the bodice
-Removed 3″ from both sides of the tunic skirt back
-Added a 38″ slit to the tunic front
-Added a pocket
-Added 6 pleats to each side of the tunic skirt back
-Added 8 pleats to the tunic skirt front
-Added 2 65×5″ belts to create the wrap
-Added 26″ to the length of the skirt
