Back in early January, my brother in law got married and I had no thought of sewing myself something to wear. Especially anything that was going to have to be nursing friendly.
But suddenly I saw M6713 on another blog and thought YEP I can do this. It's labelled "easy" (which ok, can be a term used rather loosely) but it's for knit so I wouldn't have to worry too much about fitting issues.

Within a week and a half I had done a muslin for the bodice, and made the finished dress. (view A) Everything was from the stash so I'm pleased to have finally used up that fabric that has been sitting on the shelf for a few years!
I made an extra special effort to avoid any large flowers positioned awkwardly over my bust! Speaking of busts, the mock wrap front is not entirely nursing friendly, but ok for any emergency feeds.
However, if you can attend a wedding reception without baby in tow, THEN DO IT! Free woman! Hands free! No vomit on the dress! Yes, yes YES!
I definitely recommend this pattern. The ruching is flattering and the A-line shape on View A and B help out too. I have another version cut out in Liberty jersey ready ...
