Updating my Maternity Wardrobe with a Tilly and the Buttons Indigo Dress, by Jen Walker

My maternity wardrobe has been screaming out for a bit of an update. Last pregnancy, I only managed to sew a few garments – but this time round I’ve been adamant that I will make more clothes for my bump!

I have struggled to find many maternity patterns which I really love, so I figured I should just tweak a normal pattern to work for me! The pattern I chose was a Tilly and the Buttons Indigo – a relatively new pattern from Tilly which has been on my sewing pile since it was released. It’s a really gorgeous smock dress (or top) with lovely gathering details.



I made a couple of really simple adjustments to make sure this dress would suit my pregnancy shape, and also allow room for growth so I can have wear this throughout the entirety of my pregnancy.


Firstly, I raised the waistline by 2 inches. To do this, I shortened the bodice (front and back pieces). Then I added that same amount of length to the skirt, to make up for the length lost in the bodice. As it turned out, I didn’t need to do this, as I was happy to lose a bit of length anyway.


I made a straight size 3 for this pattern – but I do wish I’d sized up. It was a bit tight across the bust, but not unwearable. I think I’m just in denial that my body is changing so much, but lesson learned!

The fabric I used for this make is a lovely cotton I picked up in my local haberdashery, Backstitch. It is like a chambray, but with beautiful neon flecks of pink and yellow which makes it a little different.


The gathering on this dress was one of the trickier parts – this was especially hard on the sleeves. But the result was so worth the effort I put in. And I also added a little topstitch to the gathered seams. I love this look – I think it just gives such a neat finish. I’m sure you’ll agree!


I’m really pleased with this make – and so happy to have a very welcome addition to my maternity wardrobe. Hopefully I have time to make a couple more pieces during this pregnancy. Wish me luck!

  2. I want to testify about TD Ameritrade who helped me invest my bitcoin and made me who I am today, I never believe in investing in bitcoin until I met TD Ameritrade. I saw so many testimonies about him helping people to invest their bitcoin. I decide to contact him and invested $500 and, after 72 hours, I get my $ 5,000 profit in my bitcoin wallet. Since I invested with them and I always receive my profit without delay, so if you want to invest your bitcoin, TD Ameritrade is the best deal with which you can invest and make profit is a guarantee. So, if you want to invest, just contact him and he will guide you on how to start your investment. Email: tdameritrade077@gmail.com

  3. GET RICH WITH THE USE OF BLANK ATM CARD FROM
    (besthackersworld58@gmail.com)
    Has anyone here heard about blank ATM card? An ATM card that allows you to withdraw cash from any Atm machine in the world. No name required, no address required and no bank account required. The Atm card is already programmed to dispense cash from any Atm machine worldwide. I heard about this Atm card online but at first i didn't pay attention to it because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got the card from guarantee Atm card vendor. We both went to the ATM machine center and confirmed it really works, without delay i gave it a go. Ever since then I’ve been withdrawing $1,500 to $5000 daily from the blank ATM card & this card has really changed my life financially. I just bought an expensive car and am planning to get a house. For those interested in making quick money should contact them on: Email address : besthackersworld58@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +1(323)-723-2568
