Five out of Four is one of my favorite designers. My Knot Your Average Dress was one of my first blog-worthy makes and my Nancy Raglan is still probably my favorite winter wear! They just released a new pattern and I knew it would be great too!
Virginia from 5oo4 is a little bit of everything! It's a tank top, a skirt, a dress with a waist band, a dress with an elastic casing and even has an optional bra. There's a high and low neck option for both front and back too.
My favorite part of this pattern is that the full bust adjustment has its own pattern piece so you won't have to alter it.
Here's my favorite one! It's a maxi dress with waist band, Size 2XL with XL FBA Bodice. I used double brushed poly from Sly Fox.
Here's another 2xl with XL FBA in the knee length waistband dress in double brushed poly from Elevated Fashion Fabrics.
The FBA fits so well! I am close to not needing one, so I usually don't bother if I have to slice and slash the bodice myself. Since it was already done for me, I tried it and it's great.
On this one, I just did the straight 2XL rather than size down and use the FBA and it looks great, but not a perfect fit like the first two.
This is the "Rome" ITY from Elevated Fashion Fabrics. I used a solid white double brushed poly from a Sincerely Rylee scrap pack!
This floral double brushed poly is from Sincerely Rylee (hoarded for about a year!)
I also did a matching set because I love being obvious at work that I sewed a matching set. That's something store bought clothes don't usually have without a huge cost!
This is the XL FBA tank in DBP from Elevated Fashion Fabrics paired with a Knitpop Ponte 2xl Virginia Skirt.
Pattern Stats -Maternity possible: Absolutely. Because the "dress" also comes in separates, I would recommend adding about 3" (6" of fabric before folding) height to the waist band of the skirt. The tank has a loose waist that will work for awhile and then it would be really easy to lengthen and ruche the sides.
Nursing possible: Pull down access is easy.
