I decided I needed a new pretty Spring dress that had access for nursing. Mostly because I miss wearing dresses and won’t be able to wear most of my dresses until I’m done nursing. I used Megan Nielsen’s Perfect Nursing & Maternity Top sewing pattern. I’m really happy with how this dress turned out, and it’ll be great for the hot summer.

I omitted the band and pleated bottom pieces, and instead added a 3/4 circle skirt. I love the beautiful flare of the skirt. It’s just so flattering. The bodice fits well and turned out great. It’s slightly too short though, but I’m really tall and I forgot to measure. I also accidentally made the hem high-low because when I measured I thought I need more length in the back. Oh well, it gives me extra length for playing and chasing children.

At first I was nervous about the fabric. I thrifted it for a steal, and it’s a beautiful knit. I loved the floral print. While I was sewing it I got scared that it would turn out to be an ugly 80’s dress because of the print. Luckily, the fit is modern enough that it looks good. And there’s radiant orchid in it too!
