Leading up to the surgery, I knew I wanted to make something to wear home from the hospital. I have been wanting to try the Olivia Jersey Wrap Dress from Named Clothing since I acquired it as part of the Monthly Stitch's Chill Out IPM pattern bundle. And I knew I was going to be sore, so I figured a wrap dress would be easy to put on, would be comfortable and still look stylish.
Looking at the measurements, my waist and hips fall into the size 20, but the bust measurement is 3 1/4" smaller than my bust size. However, after cutting out the size 20 pieces and comparing the bodice to some of my other knit dresses that I know fit, I decided to not do an FBA. Well, lo and behold, the dress fits perfect exactly the way it's drafted.
The outside photos were taken today and the indoor photos were taken after I got it to a wearable state, the night before my surgery. I hadn't sewn the facing down yet, so that's a little sloppy looking, but I did that today. I wore my new dress home from the hospital yesterday and I got several compliments from the nurses at the hospital. I was going to just say thanks and let it go, but my husband made a point of telling them that I made it. Lol.
