Update: I've posted a tutorial for this dress here: Two Piece Knit Dress
It seems like you always want what you can't have. When I was pregnant with Miles all I wanted to wear were high waisted skirts, and that just wasn't happening. Now that I have my waist back, it seems that all I want to wear are dresses. Most people can wear dresses, but when you are a nursing mother, they can be problematic.
I fell in love with this Tibi Wrap dress. The original has a zipper in the back, and is fairly fitted, but doesn't it look comfy?
I decided to attempt to make the dress myself. I didn't want to sew in a zipper, and I wanted to make sure that I would still be able to nurse while wearing it. To work around the zipper, I decided to make the dress two pieces. The skirt is a tube dress, and the wrap is essentially a jacket. I shortened the sleeves, and left off the built in belt.
When I wore the dress to church, a lady that I serve with asked me if I'd worn the dress while pregnant. I didn't, but I most certainly could have. It is super comfortable. I didn't wear a belt with the dress during the photo shoot, but the great thing about this dress is that you can wear a belt, and it would never have to be removed to feed your babe.
Thanks for reading, and for all of your kind words in the past few posts. I love hearing from you.
