dress - very easy vogue v9253

i got this dress pattern last december
my friend thelma brought it for me
when she was visiting for holidays,
and i planned to sew it as soon as possible,
as i planned to sew billion other stuff..
but then it turned out i'm pregnant
so all sewing plans were abandoned, 
mostly because i was nauseous 24/7
and couldn't do pretty much anything at all, let alone sew
started feeling better some time ago
so i finally can sew a bit every now and then..
but, since lots of my clothes still fits
and i don't really see the point of sewing maternity clothes
i've been mostly sewing for others
(meaning, sewing stuff to sell in my store
as months of non-sewing have made an even bigger hole
in my already non existent budget)
so, this dress is actually a first thing i made for me this year
(well, second, if you count a refashion that took 20 mins)
and i'm so happy to have something new to wear finally
as nothing beats that feeling 
when you put your brand new dress on
and then strut around the town like you own it
i made size m, but next time i'll go a size smaller
or even two sizes smaller,
as my dress turned out huge all around
so i had to take it in a lot..
but i love it, it's an easy sewing project
very simple but looks fabulous in the end
no wonder that the pattern is insanely popular
what i liked the most is the fact i did not have to make 
any real changes to the pattern,
and the dress still fits my 25 weeks pregnant body
with plenty of room for my belly to grow..
while i don't plan to sew any strictly maternity clothes
i do like the idea of making garments that are going to look good
on pregnant and on regular body,
so i can wear them again, once the baby girl is born
(which should happen at the beginning of september)
my sandals are handmade also
my husband made them for me
they're very comfy and i couldn't love them more
