PREPPY PREGGERETTE



 I made myself a new nautical-inspired dress!


I made the top double so I will be able to use it for nursing too.

Looks great and such a good idea with a double top for nursing. You can start you maternity clothing business cause you know how to look good and stylish in pregnancy :)

how did you do the bottom curls?

Anonymous : I did my curls by curling and brushing them inwards.

Handy! Did you use a pattern?

Stunning. You look amazing, Ulrika. Are you planning to keep wearing the dress after having the baby? It would look gorgeous cinched on the waist with a skinny belt!

Cute! Did you modify a dress you bought or did you make it from scratch?

Katja : no, I made it myself. I have actually never used patterns, I most likely wouldn't know how to :D
I usually just make drawings of the piece I want to make and try to figure out what pieces would be the best to cut, or then I look at other pieces I have and how they're made. This one was pretty easy to make as the fabric stretches.

Nora : yes! It's a little tight on the belly now (the fabric is 5% elastane) on purpose so it won't be too loose afterwards. But with a belt it will be good fpr sure. In fact most of my maternity dresses are of such a kind I will be able to use them later too. If I want to is another thing :) but this one made with planes to breast feed. I'll make another one soon suitable for both getting the boobs out and wear with a belt plus wear now with the belly!

Roxy : I made it from scratch. On a regular machine. One that makes overlock seams would of course be better but it works for me with the one I have.
