With the bands intertwined, place the right twist band on the right bodice side, arranging the two ends so they meet directly over the seam between the bodice and skirt. More petite ladies will be able to wear this as a dress throughout pregnancy.
Take the ends of one band and pin together while you work with other. They should reach your side seams comfortably and without slack, but not tightly. With the bands intertwined, place the right twist band on the right bodice side, arranging the two ends so they meet directly over the seam between the bodice and skirt.
The panel ends should be placed flat, touching edge-to-edge, without any gathering. Also, the band should be folded on itself through the loop of the other band, so that the top end shows one side of the band, and the bottom end shows the other. Pin and then zigzag in place.
Remove pins from other twist band and repeat on the other side. Double check fit of bands across the ribcage again by draping the front dress across yourself. RST, pin front dress to back dress, matching underarm and bodice seams. Carefully avoid stretching the fabric at all to avoid uneven distribution and puckering. I find that a slight zig zag works best on side seams if using a sewing machine.
Check over all fit, and adjust if needed. Thank you so much to Miriam for this literally amazing tutorial.
I can see this dress working perfectly as a nursing dress too, and even beyond that. This is the most beautiful maternity dress ever! It made me bump my head at the wall, honestly: I love how Miriam took that Anthropologie overpriced top and made it into a dress! Hands down the best handmade OR store purchased maternity dress I have ever seen!! I cannot wait to make this. Thank you so much for sharing this very generous tutorial and pattern! Hi, looking forward to trying this, but have I missed the measurements for the skirt pieces?
Sorry Tahnee, they accidentally got left out! The tutorial has been updated with the skirt measurements! I have a sneaky feeling you can watch both programmes on the BBC iPlayer. So everyone can then watch it wherever you are in the world. I have seen a few clips of it already. The BBC seem to be quite eager to advertise it, in that they are showing it on their main channels.
I found some fabric and am getting ready to cut it out! Did I miss it? Yes please…what are the measurements for the skirt pieces? Thanks for the tunic measurements. Prewashing my knits as we speak. It was so cute and fit like a dream.

Dark gray and white colored stripes in a chevron pattern. I bought this beautiful floral dress while pregnant with my baby girl. It's a size medium. I am 5'2 and wore this dress very comfortably even when I was lb!!! Wore it only a few times for church and parties. I always got compliments when I wore it. Gorgeous seraphine polka dot white shift dress.
Have only worn it once in great condition. However that said I wore it without the belt. I snipped the little loops that were to hold the belt in place and wore my own skinny black belt above my belly. Looks great without a belt too. Perfect for a wedding or the Holidays! Add a belt to create an empire waistline!
