dana in silk faille gown made sewing at tchad workrooms in chicago

Formally Expecting.

Dana had a problem.

She needed to attend a formal event but was 7 months pregnant. We aren’t sure if we can properly explain just how little the two groups in the Venn diagram labeled “Women” overlap: Pregnant and In need of formal clothing.

What is offered to those who find themselves in that overlap have a little bit of a problem.


Dana used Vogue #8360 in black silk faille from Fishman’s Fabrics

She wanted to have a dress that she could alter when she was back to her regular size 4, so this fit the bill and she could splurge on the silk.
