DIY Floral Bell Sleeve Dress – M7505

Happy Monday!

Did you catch me in the Seams & Scissors “30 Best Sewing Bloggers Under 30” ? There are some amazing women featured in that article, and I am so thankful I got asked to participate! Go check it out if you haven’t already!

I hope everyone had a great Easter Sunday. I participated in an Instagram roundup of Easter Dresses, and today I am sharing my entry.

This is the second time I have made McCalls 7505. You can see the first version here. When sewing maternity looks I really try to focus on comfort and style, but I want to make sure my clothes can get multiple uses so I tend to go for silhouettes that will look good after baby as well. Hence the reason why this pattern has quickly become a TNT (Tried and True) pattern for me. I didn’t make any modifications, but shortened the length by about 3 inches.

Now, Let’s talk about HEM LINES while pregnant! Something I did not account for was the fact that as the bump gets bigger, dress seem to “shrink” hahaha. This will no longer be worn as a dress. Luckily, my GO TO outfits this pregnancy involve dresses and jeans. TOGETHER! OH MY!

Since we are talking about maternity, let’s do a quick bump update!

I can’t believe I’m just shy of 7 months. Is it just me, or after the first baby pregnancy becomes an afterthought? I feel like I haven’t had time to stop and really take it all in! I am feeling pretty exhausted, which is why my posts have been sparse. I am still sewing, and working on patterns, but finding time to get pictures taken is like finding a needle in a haystack. LOL! Baby boy is two and a half, and he’s taller than some 3 and 4 year olds. Definitely not a baby anymore *sad face* I am really looking forward to spending four months at home with him though. His days are filled with Daddy, and I am so thankful that we are able to make that work. However, I’m so excited to get to bond with him while the new baby is sleeping most of the day lol.
