Once upon a time while I was still pregnant I had a favorite piece of clothing.
It was this wonderful maxi dress:
I wore it religiously.
It made me feel good, it was so comfortable, and it even though it wasn't a maternity dress it fit me right to the very end.
It rightfully earned the title of best dress ever.
|Me and my three favorite things at that moment: Maxi dress, Gelato and B. (behind the camera)|
When our baby boy finally arrived I was the happiest woman on earth.
>But part of me was a little sad, I would never be able to wear my favorite dress again, as my belly had stretched it out.<
I didn't want to wait for a next pregnancy to wear it again (because if that ever happens again maxi dresses will probably be long out of style), so I decided to restyle it into a skirt.
^ ^ ^ ^
Months passed and my dress lay crumpled up in a corner, useless.
But finally, seven months after I had given birth, I found a quiet moment to work out my plan.
I hacked of the top part and sewed a wide elastic around the top to make a stretchy waistband.
And, voila, the dress had now magically transformed into a beautiful skirt.
And so ends the tale of the favorite dress, which has now become the favorite skirt.
And we will live happily ever after.
