I have a link for photos at the bottom...
I need some fitting help with this dress. I made my mock up, and did a few alterations. First I cut the shoulders to medium and the bust to XL. I did this instead of doing a FBA, which now I am thinking probably needs to be done. (the easy way out never does work!) It pulls across the front when I put my shoulders back. It also pulls on the sleeves.
I also added 1 inch to the length of the top that is gathered to the band, and it just seems too long. I usually need more length because of my cup size, but this really fits me well right now at 4 weeks. I think the band will be lost somewhere when I actually have the baby belly.
Any suggestions for fitting? I really need a good maternity dress that I can make again and again. I have lots of winter maternity clothes because my last 2 were cold weather babies. A June baby will require light and airy attire to keep mom happy.Photos
