How does one write a suitable preface for something like this?

BAM!

I couldn’t just stop at one before pic, either!  🙂

Just sayin'.

At first, I didn’t understand why the shape of these atrocious overalls was so odd.  Suddenly, all became clear!

Ma, as in Maternity. As in Oh Ma God, no! 😉

Yep.  You’re looking at a pair of maternity overalls!  As I clearly have no need for these as-is, it was time to get to work!  🙂

I knew I wanted to turn this into a dress, so I unpicked the crotch  area…

Rrrrrrrrip!!!!

…and then cut off the legs!

Day 304:  A Pregnant Pause Dress 6
Chop! And Chop!

Then, I put the whole thing on my dress form and started pinning!

Pinning where I unpicked the crotch!

Decreasing that preggo belly section!
Day 304:  A Pregnant Pause Dress 9
Shortening that back section!
Day 304:  A Pregnant Pause Dress 10
Taking in those sides!

Then, I ran all of the pinned sections under the needle!

Day 304:  A Pregnant Pause Dress 11
Whirrrrrrrr! 🙂

Then, I gave my new dress a new hem!

Day 304:  A Pregnant Pause Dress 12
Almost done!

I pressed my new seams & hem…and now I have a comfy and totally non-preggo frock!

Much better, eh? 🙂

Cheers!
