Testing the Sheona Dress

If you guys aren’t familiar with Athina Kakou, you are truly missing out! Over the summer, she reached out to me to ask if I’d like to test out her newest upcoming pattern, the Sheona dress.

Best of all, many of their knit patterns don’t even require a maternity hack to be baby bump friendly!! See how I got myself wedding guest ready, despite having nothing in my closet that fit!
