Ladies Dresses

NEW! Catherine's Choice Dress

Maternity and Nursing dress with  "Easy Empire elegance makes this style wearable throughout all stages of motherhood—pregnancy, breast-feeding and beyond. The high waistline accommodates a mother’s changing figure, while an adjustable elasticized drawstring affords custom fit, tying in front. Side access nursing plackets are concealed beneath the full bodice overlay, eliminating the gaping issue during pregnancy. "
This dress style can be made without nursing access and with a narrower skirt for seasons outside of pregnancy. For more information on this dress style, please see the Catherine's Choice pattern page

Custom Catherine's Choice dresses are available for $92.
