My husband graduated today! Yay! I am so proud of him and what he has accomplished! Now he just has to take the bar exam (boo). I decided to whip up a nice dress for myself to wear to his graduation. I used a subtle striped pink jersey fabric. The back and sleeves were cut with the stretch crosswise, and the front was cut in a bunch of different diagonal strips.
The key to make it nursing friendly was to leave an opening between the top piece and the next piece down near the bust. To keep the other pieces from curling I sewed with a double needle across the front. This also saves me from an embarrassing openings. The opening near the bust has lots of overlap to keep everything safe and hidden.
I really love this dress. It's definitely my style; it's flattering and easy to dress up, but it can go casual too.
There was crazy rain today, but the sun shown just long enough for us to get some nice pictures after the ceremony. We did it!
