molly dress

Winter has just begun, and I seem to be on a dress-making spree. I’m not sure what it is, but tights and stretchy dresses feel like the most comfortable items at the moment!

This is my new Molly Dress by Sew Over It. I’ve made the top version a few times, but this was the first time I’d made the dress. I thought it would be a great dress to wear during pregnancy, as it’s a pretty straight forward design made for stretchy fabrics.

However, I’m not sure this fabric is quite right for this pattern. I bought it online, so I had to rely on the product description to gauge the amount of stretch. With 4% spandex, there really isn’t much give in the fabric. I’m not too sure for how much longer I’ll be able to wear this dress.

That being said, I really enjoy the large scale print of the floral design and the overall colour palette. The deep, navy background is perfect to make the flowers pop.

I made the pattern as is, but I did add a center back seam, mostly to conserve a bit of fabric. I almost wish I’d cut it in a full piece though, the doubling design can be a bit weird to look at.

Even if this dress only gets a few weeks of wear, I think it’s really pretty and a great pattern for pregnancy. I have learnt a lesson in buying fabric online, however!
