Summer Wardrobe: Two-Piece Knit Wrap Nursing Dress


I’m not expecting, but I’ve got tons of ladies in my family and circle of friends who are. So, if you’re a mom or mom-to-be who’s planning to breastfeed—or if you’re looking for a great handmade gift idea for someone else who is—you’ll definitely want to check out this two-piece knit wrap nursing dress tutorial with free printable pattern that Tricia from Leafy Treetop Spot: Made by Me & Shared With You shared on Prudent Baby!

This dress looks so comfortable and flattering, and the drape and stretch of the knit fabric seems like it would nicely accommodate a changing post-pregnancy body. (Not being a parent, I can’t speak from experience.)

Fair warning: The pattern in this tutorial isn’t graded, so if your measurements don’t align with those of the author, you’ll need to adapt it accordingly. Luckily, the shapes are pretty straightforward and knit fabric is pretty forgiving, so a reasonably-experienced sewist shouldn’t have too much trouble.

Ready to give it a try? Head on over to Prudent Baby to get started.
