ebony dress

In my quest to sew items of clothing that I can wear during and after pregnancy, I think I may have found the perfect non-maternity pattern.

This is the Ebony Dress by Closet Case Patterns. It’s a loose-fitting dress with loads of swing! I made a size 14, just for a bit of extra room for the coming months. You might be able to see that the sleeves look a little too large, I’m not overly fussed about it now, but after bub arrives I think I’ll bring them in for a closer fit.

This is such a great dress for layering! I am wearing it with stockings, a thermal undershirt from Uniqlo, and a slip. I also think it would look great with a denim jacket.

My fabric is a drapey, rayon spandex knit from Spotlight. It is lovely and soft, quite easy to work with, and I think it’s the perfect choice for this pattern. It’s the weirdest thing, in my pictures you can see the tiling repeat of the pattern quite easily, although, in real life, it’s hardly noticeable!

My ‘normal’ size in this pattern would be a 10, so I think the dress will need to be altered in a few places for post-pregnancy wear, but I love it for now.
