Vogue V9321 Baby Proof Wedding Outfit

Inspiration

Hi again everyone! More baby proof sewing, this time for wedding season!

I have a couple of weddings coming up and this time I'll have Jesse with me, whom I'm still breastfeeding so as well as hiding baby sick my outfit also requires breast access!

Fabric

I found this beautiful stretch Jersey Fabric and thought that it would work really well with the Vogue V9321 pattern:

Design

I didn't have to make any adjustments to the front as it's a wrap over style so access is easy for feeding. I did alter the back though as breastfeeding bras are rather bulky and were showing with the tie style of the original pattern. I made up the pattern as instructed then pulled the ties over, attaching them at the side seams:

This also means that you can wear a jacket over the top without an unsightly lump where the tie would have been.

Assembly

I am a massive fan of Wonder Tape when working with stretch fabric so used it on most seams.

I also used French seams on the inside leg:

The pattern also required bias binding, which I made to match:

The finished outfit

I am really pleased with how this has turned out! I'm also going to dress it down with a white t-shirt underneath with some trainer's so I can get some more wear out of it.

Would I do anything different next time?

I am breastfeeding however it's rather “busty” so next time I think I would take the wrap further over to be a bit more covered!
