Vintage Pregnancy Dress


My poor neglected blog! It's been too long. I've been consumed with moving, then Christmas, and now the last home stretch before baby is born. Also, my kids refuse to let me type! But I must share that before I moved I took the time to sew a dress! 

 My original plan was to use this beautiful floral fabric, but then when I got around to sewing the dress, it just seemed too Spring-like. I wanted something warmer and my aunt just happened to give me some warm plaid fabric. I had to use it.

Someone pointed out to me that the plaid is in "Hufflepuff" colors! Every time I take a Hogwarts quiz I get sorted into "Hufflepuff", and it makes sense! As much as I'd like to be in "Gryffindor" or "Ravenclaw", I'm just not that. At least I'm not in "Slytherin"! ;)

 Vintage patterns can be challenging! This one had a lot of room for error but I'm pretty sure (even after I made a decent muslin!) I made the shoulders too small! It somehow still works for me though!

I was debating if I should include this very cheesy photo! It was around Christmas time, I had this adorable baby deer, and I wanted to copy Zooey Deschanel on her Christmas "She and Him" album. Yes, I'm a total goofball!


  1. That is such a pretty dress! You always do a wonderful job. I loved the pictures.

    1. You are the sweetest! I hope things are going well for you!

  2. That is such a wonderfully pretty dress. It looks like it could be sported post-pregnancy, too, which gives it an even greater vintage feel (getting the most out of what one owns, I mean).

    I hope that you're doing well and having a great tail end of winter, sweet Sara.

    Big hugs,
