I wish I would have had something this cute when I was breastfeeding. I hope you feel as wonderful as you look in this dress!

Brilliant! I got this pattern with the same idea in mind, but I just never got round to implementing it ... great to see someone who did, though :)

A very lovely dress and what a clever redesign! I love the look of the pleats versus the original gathers. Great job!

What a great dress for nursing. You really did a nice job converting it.

This looks awesome. You've have come quite a way from struggling with an FBA to redesigning dresses, in what less than two years? I wonder if converting the back to gathers might soften the look.
