Wow, a house full of women. :) It's just the opposite for men, I'm the only woman in my household,I have two boys. Maybe this one will be a man child.

Thanks Alethia, this is baby #4 and I'm so done. I also need to make some costumes for my little girls (I have 3 girls, we still don't know the sex of the new baby). I have a McCall's pattern for that. I just need to buy it and get the fabric together. I've just been too scared to even touch the sewing machine.

The one shoulder dress is M6320. All of those patterns are from McCall's. Go to clubbmv.com. There you can browse the Butterick, McCalls and Vogue Patterns.

Congratulations on your soon -to-be new arrival!

Alethia, where did you find these? I wish I was skinny like the models in the pictures LOL. I will most likely will still be a bit swollen from having the baby. The baby should be here late September.  That gives me about two months (or a month and a half to recoup). I think I was wearing a 14 by the end of the pregnancy and after with the last baby. (I managed to get back into a 12 before realizing I was pregnant AGAIN lol. I'm done so back to near my original size) I really like the one strap dress.  What pattern is it?

Wow these are cute, I like the one shoulder dress. It seems easy enough to make. I also like the one shoulder blue top.
Comment by Alethia on July 21, 2011 at 2:10am

Maybe a denim strapless dress or stretch denim jeggings paired with a really cute one knit top. Check out these patterns:

Red dress

 

How about a one shoulder dress?

 

Stretch denim jeggings

 

Top idea #1~ Iike the one-shoulder blue top.

 

This is a really cute red top1

Just a few ideas to get your mind going. :)

Honestly? Anything I can get my hands on. I don't have much right now but I wouldn't mind wearing a dress.
Comment by Alethia on July 21, 2011 at 12:27am

Katriska,

What do you wear the most, dresses, pants, or skirts/tops?

I have a couple of ideas running through my head....

Comment by Katriska on July 20, 2011 at 11:42am
I was told it was casual club attire LOL. Now I don't know WHAT to wear/make. I haven't been to a club since I was um.. 18 or 21. Having children has really changed my lifestyle.
Comment by Katriska on July 20, 2011 at 11:30am
Alethia, thanks for responding to my question. I'm not even sure if its casual or semi-formal. I should have some idea by the end of today (I asked a friend who's also attending LOL). I suck at dressing. I have 3 kids and I've totally lost myself. I'm also 29 weeks pregnant so I'm trying to figure out if I should my pregnant size now and go with that or wait until a couple of weeks after I have the baby. Sigh, I haven't looked for anything right now because all the events are in November and the baby is due in late Sept, early Oct.
