Holiday Maternity Dress

I’ve always liked the look of a peplum dress, but I’ve never seen it on a pregnant woman. I took the risk and made one for my company holiday party. I couldn’t find a maternity peplum dress pattern, so I mixed two different patterns. I took the bodice of the peplum dress by Lekala and used the Erin maternity skirt by Megan Nielsen, which I’ve made several times.

Here are some details:

Pattern adjustments:

  • Shortened bodice
  • Widened bodice’s front darts so the waist measurement matched the skirt
  • Added a few inches to the length and width of the peplum
  • Added back seam on the skirt to allow for a zippered back
  • Omitted the elastics from the skirt

Fabric:

  • Thick black knit (sort of a Ponte knit) with grey lace print (thick enough that I avoided having to use lining)
  • 60% stretch (10 cm stretches to 16 cm)
  • From King Textiles in Toronto

Notions:

  • 22″ black invisible zipper
  • Black thread

It took me about 5 hours from start to finish and I love it.

    • Thanks for your helpful article. One other problem is that mesothelioma cancer is generally the result of the breathing of materials from mesothelioma, which is a very toxic material. It really is commonly witnessed among personnel in the structure industry who may have long experience of asbestos. It is caused by living in asbestos covered buildings for an extended time of time, Your age plays an important role, and some consumers are more vulnerable on the risk compared to others.
