Maternity Style : Happy Fourth Of July!

by Clare Mansell

So I’m joining in for a second time with Street Style Sunday, despite the fact that I really struggle to get any more than a single photo of what I’m wearing on a weekly basis! You want close ups of individual items? That may take some time!

Independence Day

Dress : Boden / Cardigan : H&M / Flip-Flops : Havaianas

Yesterday we celebrated Canada Day as we have always done since we spent two years in Alberta. We do the party on the closest Saturday to 1st July, which this year happened to be 4th, so it became Canada Day… with a flavour of the 4th July.

Normally I’d try and crowbar some red into what I’m wearing for our party, but this year I figured I could be let off as my wardrobe is a little restricted. I actually bought this dress about 6 years ago from Boden. It is absolutely my colours, but it was utterly shapeless and hugely unflattering! Then a few weeks ago I decided to dig it out and see if I could alter it to make it fit my bump. I took it in by about an inch and a half on both seams, literally by turning it inside out and sewing a line an inch and a half up both sides. I also sewed up the neckline a bit to stop in gaping quite so much around the cleavage.

I turned it back in the right way and tried it on and it fitted like a glove – I can assure you that does not happen every time!

Since then it’s been one of my most useful summer maternity dresses and when I get too big for it, or I want to wear it after the baby has been born, I’ll just unpick the seams and resize it again!
