DIY maternity wardrobe: Tilly Buttons Mama Agnes Dress

This is a very belated post. I made this dress way back 7 months ago. Well now I already have a four month old. I'll try to update about my new baby in a future post, but for now, let me finish about this dress.

This is the third garment made from the Tilly Mama Agnes pattern. At around 32 weeks I really need more maternity clothing and this is a quick fix. Last time I made two tops, this time I made the dress. Same everything except the fabric.

The fabric is poly knit bonded with backing. It’s quite stretchy. You need stretchy fabric for this pattern because of the negative ease.

Fabric yardage: Length1.6m Width 135 cm

I cut size 3 and graded to size 4 from waist down. I used 5/8 inch seam allowance. 

I shortened the hem by 1-1/4 inch. I am happy with this length. Like my last two Agnes tops, I shortened the waist by 1/2 inch. I didn't alter the sleeve. I am happy with the sleeve length.

This is a very quick project. It took me maybe a couple of hours.
