dresses are great

dressing as a Mamma is not easy. You just keep changing sizes. You have no idea if you will return to your old size or if you will remain at the new one. Your breasts change, your hips change, and then there's that belly to deal with. Each belly may even be different, when some maternity clothes dont always fit the same. Its not easy. In some ways I can see why women the the past wore big dresses. they can accommodate a changing mid section, and are comfortable to sit in when you have pressure from a baby in the womb. It may be time to return to the Jane Austin dresses of old. A wool dress over petty coats and tights is amazingly warm, and quite comfy. (I experiences this while in Bath last year). Although, there is the problem of nursing in a dress, which has only recently been solved by the trend of wearing pants under a dress. This means you can just hoist up yo' dress any time you need to feed your bubba. Works for me!
I just bought wool tights. And I dont fit any of my old dresses. Of course I NEED new ones, but then there's that age old problem - er money? So, I may have to learn to sew, visit my thrift store, or find some fall sales. But wool tights - how you are so lovely. I got them at SEARS, wool, cotton and nylon. Oh so warm and stretchy! not scratchy.
If I had my way though, I'd get dresses from Wiksten, and uniform studio, and all handmade ones from Etsy. A lady can dream cant she?
Anyways, heres a tribute to the dress:
Dress, Oh dress,
you are one piece, and dont require a skirt (but can go with one, or with pants...)
you are easy to put on, and when big enough you hide my bulges
Dress, you are pretty and cute, and also so sophisticated
Dress, you are convenient and work in all seasons.
Oh dress, how I wish I had more of you.
OK, thats enough of that. Bye.
