I love the old navy beach dress, but I have made a commitment to myself that I would not buy new clothes that are made outside the USA. It is my little pro-american, keep the jobs and money in our country attack against the world. So I love this dress, I imagine that it is soft and comfy.\

My only way around my shopping dilemma is to either buy it thrift or sew it. Since it is the current fashion, I doubt I will buy it thrift. SO I am checking out patterns.
sadly, both of these patterns only go to size 16 and my after baby pattern size is still about a size 20. I am not sure why pattern sizes are so unforgiving. So I am out of luck on these patterns.
I might have luck with this one:
I am really not sure how I am going to do on making a dress. I figure, I am going to hit Goodwill and a few garage sales in the morning. And then hit walmart for the pattern. New Look 6774. I will give it a try tomorrow night. I read a few reviews on it and I hope it will be a good fit for me. It is hard at the in between stage that I am at. I have a big butt from the pregnancy but worst is my belly. I know that it will go away on its own, but I am at the point that nothing fits.
I did try to copy a dress I already owned and it was a maternity one. It turned out cute but a complete flop on fitting. Try try again. I need to go through my entire wardrobe and clean house. I have so much that I do not care for.
