Vogue V9321 Baby Proof Wedding Outfit
Posted in Projects on Friday the 12th July 2019 by Vicki Ormerod
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!
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.
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!
