I had a Christmas party to go to last week and had nothing to wear.  I think it always feels like this once I pass the 8 month mark...  I needed something quick and inexpensive to make and this dress (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0) came to mind! 
I made minor adjustments.
I did do the boob tube since I would feel way too exposed without it.  Also I used 2 panels to make the skirt because I didn't have enough material to do the whole thing as one panel.  It's about 3 inches longer in the front than the back to accommodate my belly.  And I made a top only because I figured I would get more use out of a shirt than a dress. 

So here it is:



I've already worn it twice and the 3yds of material were on sale so it cost @ $11 to make!  Sweet!

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!
