DIY Floral Mini

I’m traditionally not a floral or print person but I’m taking this opportunity to go crazy with these camouflaging fabrics.  I find it quite liberating to not feel the need to scrutinize every aspect of my body while pregnant and simply embrace what’s going on.  My motivation going through this process has been staying strong as opposed to trying to ward off the natural progression of pregnancy.  Lifting weights make me feel strong healthy and empowered which is so important at a time that’s so life changing and takes you out of your normal comfort zone.

This dress was made with this jersey from Mood Fabrics which is crazy comfortable and definitely stand out.

The pattern used was this super simple Vogue V1314 which is a side ruched dress pattern but because I had only 45 minutes to make it I made the following alterations:

-Opted to leave the ruching out
-Cut the dress 1 size smaller than normal to accommodate for the left out ruching
-Removed 4″ from the hem of the dress

Dress: DIY
Heels: Giuseppe Zanotti
Clutch: Ports 1961
