LOVE this dress, Kristen! What pattern did you use? I am 7 months along with our first, and have been making a few maternity jumpers/dresses lately. I am also planning to make some button-front shirtdresses this summer (once the baby is born, so I know my new "top" size!). I've had fun looking back on some of the things you've made and getting ideas. But this one is so far my hands-down favorite, including your fabric choice. Any hope of getting the info on where you bought it?! Thanks and God bless the *three* of you! <3

I'm so pleased you like it, Sarah, and are finding some inspiration from my past sewing projects. The pattern I used was Butterick 6155 - I will add the photo of the pattern envelope in the post so you can see what it looks like. And the fabric was bought at www.fashionfabricsclub.com - my favorite online fabric store. Most of my non quilting cotton fabrics are bought there. It was on one of their fabulous clearance sales (1.99 a yard!), so it may not still be available...

Aw, congratulations! Definitely it's a good thing to wait and see what your new size will be. I went up a size, but right at first, probably went up 2 sizes. And it took me a little while to fit back into my regular clothes, so some adjustable patterns are a good idea too. :-)
