And the belly picture… so very close now!

My sewing goal while pregnant is to make dresses that will still look good after my belly is back to normal. So maternity wear that is able to translate into normal wear.  Previous attempts include my Long Sleeve Sheath Dress Tutorial, Simplicity’s 1360 dress, and my Breezy Trapeze Dress Tutorial.  Today, in my attempt to do that, we will make a boxy summer dress with a v-neck both in the front and the back that sports little tiny sleeves.  To help the dress keep its shape up top and not fall off the shoulders, we will add a small strip of material across the back v-neck.  This dress idea was inspired after a Silence + Noise Vega shift dress that was selling at Urban Outfitters, which is unfortunately sold out.  I was originally planning on adding some front rectangular patch pockets, but since my belly is 37 weeks out at this time, it’s hard to gauge exactly where I want to put them.  So, I plan on adding them after my little man makes his grand entrance.  While pregnant, I always feel that adding a belt helps flatter my shape but without a belt looks nice too! I just think it’s just best to show off that tummy rather than hide it. 🙂  Read along for my DIY double v-neck boxy dress tutorial…
