I not the sort of girl to discriminate against a dress
just because it has "maternity" in its label.
In fact, I own three Gap Maternity dresses which I neither bought nor wore while actually pregnant.
I loved the print of this fabric and since it was
only eight dollars, I couldn't really pass it up, could I?
I took in the skirt with pin pleats in a sunburst pattern down the front since I didn't want to loose the pockets on the sides, (of course); added the cream chiffon underlay just because I thought it looked pretty there, then dressed up and took myself to the only building in town that kinda resembles a castle.
Gotta say, I'm completely happy with the end result.
