The Darcy dress is a great maternity style, as the soft pleats falling from the under bust create a voluminous skirt, taking you from the first trimester through to the last. The dress can be made on a regular sewing machine if you don’t have an overlocker/serger. I give lots of tips on sewing with stretch knits in the tutorial.
4 way stretchy and high stretch knits with 50 – 100% stretch factor. Lightweight cotton lycra, polyester/spandex blends, rayon/spandex blends. Any soft stretch knit that will give a lovely drape to the skirt. Light to medium weight all over lace for bodice (optional).
