I would love a tutorial or pattern! I have a 4 month old and would love a nursing dress! I haven't found one yet.

Just echoing the sentiment that you should probably market this pattern. It's not only adorable, but incredibly functional. Also, I'd hate to see someone knock it off before you stood to profit off your amazingly innovative idea.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Wow, that is an amazing dress! In no way does it look like specialty apparel, but in the second shot, it looks like it would work better than a lot of what's out there! I'd buy a pattern, and save it for a couple years!

 Yes, I agree you should market the pattern. I have searched a bit and not found anything this cute out there...You should look into a copyright and then go from there..You could have a real nack at designing breastfeeding clothing..( I am not a nursing momma I am now a grandma but this is one of the best things I have seen in years for nursing mothers!!I hit the This Rock button...

Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but I believe you have one year from the date that you shared your idea, to obtain a patent on it, before others can rip it off and market it as their own.  Patents are quite expensive (i believe about $500 or so) but would be totally worth it since you could make quite a bit of money off of it.  This is a GREAT idea, and you pulled it off so well!!

Gorgeous dress!  And I was just talking to my sister - who is nursing a 6-month old about wedding attire and she had to go with a nice top and slacks.  I would love to be able to make her something like this!

That's such a cute dress! I can't say anything about the whole baby-thing because I don't have any kids, but I can say that it's an adorable dress in general and I never would've guessed it was designed for nursing, awesome job!

You come out of lurking status and look what happens, everyone wants to put you to work!  This is wonderful.  I just ditched dresses while I nursed, this would have been a great alternative.  Such a cute style, I'm sure lots of ladies would wear it without nursing and men would love that easy access feature.  Wink

I have nothing new to add. I agree with everyone else. You need to either make these to sell, or make up a pattern to sell, because I can really see this taking off! It doesn't look like a nursing dress.

That is a lovely dress and I agree with the others - there's a niche market here!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
