sunday best: pregnancy edition

Ok, so this is not a Sunday outfit. But I wanted to share and get opinions... Rob has dubbed this the "half muumuu." I made it from this fabric I had my eye on for a long time and FINALLY went on sale. And I don't know how I feel about it and have not worn it outside of the house yet because of that. I'm not sure if my indecision over whether or not I like it is because it didn't turn out the way I had pictured or if I just don't like it. I've been studying the few pictures I took and I think I'll be tweaking the neckline some more, and maybe mess with the shorter side of the hem. But I would really really appreciate it if you'd give me your opinions too! The idea was to have something that wouldn't constrict my very sore belly (all these stretching muscles and ligaments hurt. A lot. Add in lots of Braxton-Hicks and anything tight around the bump is really uncomfortable), with lots of room to grow.

dress: McCalls pattern M6556 (I made lots of tweaks to the pattern to guarantee it would fit the whole 9 months. Some of them really weren't necessary, like lengthening it. The pictures make it look a little short but it hits at the knee as is. Or, I guess I shold say if you're short like me it will hit you at the knee. If you're really tall it'll be like the model. I'm planning on making a non-maternity version closer to the original pattern once I'm done breastfeeding.)
undershirt: Halftee

So again, please let me know what you think!  And I'll probably be sharing pictures of it again once I make the planned tweaks.
