Retro dress, 40’s style I think. The pleats at the waist that give definition there and ease at the bust, are the same design element that can be found in the Sencha blouse, from Colette patterns, that I adore.
I like the dress below and its clean lines. It has a V neckline front and back, short kimono sleeves, the skirt can be “pencil” or “A line”. I can see myself wearing it. Despite it being stamped “retro look” I found it has quite a modern edge.
A fake wrap dress (the bow is only decorative), the pattern can be made with a semi-fitted or gathered skirt. I’m not fond of this one.
This patterns all are not exclusively designed for pregnant women, but they will all fit pregnancies very well. To sew in stretch jersey
“Soirée” dresses for girls
Isn’t this “Chanel” style jacket cute for a little girl? The pattern also includes pants and a skirt.
