Featured: Smocked Maternity Sun Dress

Nothing is quite as fun as being pregnant in the dead of summer (insert eye roll here).

But at least you can look cute in this breezy sun dress. It looks SO comfy. I’m tempted to make one for myself, and I’m not pregnant! Make one for yourself or someone you know who is expecting with this quick tutorial from A Beautiful Mess!

Would you make this super cute dress if you weren’t pregnant (I WOULD!)?

  1. Looks like a great summer dress Heather. Thanks for posting. For those of us who have not used a smocked fabric for the past 40 years. What are the women sizes 1 yard of this smocked fabric will it make? Is it adjustable in length?
