Note to selv no. 07: Remember to take pictures of the dress you spent weeks assembling. Before you know it, you’re pregnant and unable to squeeze yourself into it.

My latest sewing project was a wool wrap dress with pencil skirt. Right after I finished it, I learned that I was pregnant, yay! I thought the dress would still fit me well into my first trimester, so I felt in no hurry to document it. Wrong! Now the only one who can rock my dress is my manikin. She looks pretty darn god in it though. I’ll just have to wait until my baby has arrived (and probably then some) to wear it. In the meantime, I’m working on a more bump friendly dress. I’ll show you later.
