so after having searched for about a month for a costume that would flatter my larger than life figure yet not have to settle for the stereotypical "bun in the oven" costume i came across this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=129919.msg1261693#msg1261693 by DAYMOTH and let me tell you i fell in love with her costume. knowing i would never be able to do hers justice i  consider this my "tribute"

at thirty six weeks i knew i wouldn't feel comfortable in anything revealing or restricting so i went with a simple tube with a drawstring at the top and a belt to create a mock empire waste and show i was plump and preggo and not just extra plump so i went from there. the fabric is a mystery gray like soft on one side and smooth on the other like extremely cheap sweatshirt material in a way. all of the leaves came from dollar store fall garland and i at one time had a leaf crown but my brother had one too many drinks and decided he was a zombie that needed a leaf crown. there were accessories such as a  necklace with matching bracelet and earrings but they aren't very visible in the pic i can supply pics if anyone wants.  the shawl thing was pinned to the top of the dress so i didn't have to mess with it and my shoulders didn't get cold. my machine has been broken for ages so everything was hand sewn including the leaves ONE BY ONE haha. i didn't wear shoes because 1. i was in my parents house and shoes are a nono 2. i figured mother nature would prefer to go au natural and 3. my feet were so swollen any respectable pair of shoes wouldn't fit
   so there you have it now i present mother nature

please excuse the face i was laughing not in a great deal of pain as it appears

and a semi close up kudos to my little sister for letting me use her room to take the pics and being my photographer!!
well don't forget to vote and even if it's not for me let me know what you think please!!

You look Beautiful! I LOVE the bottom hem with the leaves, and the colors in general. Yay!!!

Do you say 'yes' to a single desire? Oh, my friends, then you say 'yes' to all pain.
