Pregnant Pause No-Sew (almost)

Let me begin right away by specifying that:

I AM NOT PREGNANT

But this is a Maternity dress

I love polka dots. For .99 cents, I happily snatched this up.

I didn’t need to do much.

I could’ve left this as-is and it would’ve been a perfectly acceptable no sew refashion. But I decided to take it in just a wee bit.

Et voila

Paired with some fleece lined tights and Danskos, I was all set.

Pausing to reflect if I actually were pregnant…

Muffin wanted to take some new head shots for his business cards, so we headed downtown.

He was kind enough to take some pictures for me too πŸ™‚

Does anyone recognize the cardigan I’m wearing? πŸ™‚

Though it was super warm during the day, it cooled off quite a bit in the afternoon.

I don’t mind admitting that I’m not super happy with the length. I feel like I cut too much off. It’s a bit short (for my legs…let’s be honest) to be a dress. But it’s a little too long to wear with skinny jeans. I went ahead and posted these photos even though I’ll probably cut the length shorter and wear it as a tunic eventually. Muffin likes it when I wear dresses so I promised to keep it like this for a little while though πŸ™‚

I try to keep Muffin happy!

This post is a bit befitting considering the refashion is a maternity outfit… but also since it’s been a while since my last post (Pregnancy. Pause. Get it???). Β I recently got a promotion at my job and it’s consumed a lot more of my time, which is a really good thing!

Seriously though… we’re pretty cute πŸ™‚

Muffin also surprised me with THIS a few weeks ago:

It’s a boy! πŸ˜‰

I swore off pets in 2011 when I had to re-home my first cat. It was just too painful and I said, “Never again!”

Well… I came home from work one day and Muffin’s just sitting on the couch with this little guy and, what can I say? I’m in love. It’s been an adjustment getting used to life with a pet again. But I think we’re settled in and used to each other now πŸ™‚

I should be able to get back to sewing more refashions for myself without month long breaks in between now.

  1. Hi, I loved this post and I think you did a great job on your refashion. I admired your work when you were participating in Refashion Runway over at The Renegade Seamstress and have been following you for a while. I love doing that same type of refashion and have a wordpress blog too which is where I just shared this post. I also shared it on Twitter.

    Thanks for sharing, and your fur-baby is adorable, and the picture of you and Muffin is very cute.

    Blessings
