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.

Claire, Fantastic dress! Its a very flattering shape (even the back IMO) and your conversion for breastfeeding is great!

What an inspired idea for a conversion to nursing dress.

What a great idea. I have a pregnant daughter and this pattern, so far unused, so I'll be following your lead. Thanks.

Very clever of you and I like the design changes you made with the pleats instead of gathers.
