« on: October 21, 2010 01:43:19 PM »

When my son was about four month old we attended a friends wedding and I needed something to wear that allowed breast feeding.
At first thought it would save me some time to buy a dress and alter it, but after an unsuccessful afternoon downtown I decided to spend the night sewing.

I never buy dresses anyway.

On to the pictures:

It's burdastyle's Azalea dress made into a nursing dress.

You could even cover a tiny baby with the shear top layer while nursing.

Hope you like it!

I wish my lipstick was a little more ... HALLUCINOGENIC!

Genius! Styling dress and a built in hooter hider. Just what all us rocking mommas need. I may just need to make me one.  Wink

How did you make the boobie holes?

Thank you!

I took the front part of the pattern and made it into two overlapping pieces. Similar to the technique shown here: http://www.rostitchery.com/2006/05/overlap_nursing.html
I didn't use an elastic because you wouldn't see the bottom layer of the dress.

WOW!  I needed a closet full of these five years ago!  Very neat!

Thank you! It was extremely comfortable and I planned making a couple of shirts with the same pattern. But I never got around to do it. I still have the fabric sitting in my stash. Next time I'm going to make them when I'm still pregnant.
