I’ve seen so many pregnant ladies looking very cute in midi-length tank dresses, so I reached out in a Maternity Sewing Group on Facebook to ask what patterns some of the sewists there had loved for similar silhouettes. I came back with a few great ideas, one of them being the Made for Mermaids Ruby Dress! This one caught my eye originally because of the cute, thinner straps… But also because many of those who suggested it confirmed that they or their loved one comfortably wore this dress through much of pregnancy without any maternity modifications! I’ve mentioned this before, with my last pregnancy, but the idea of sewing something that I will only be able to wear for a couple of months makes me so sad – I want the option to wear it forever! So this one seemed like a winner.
