Shimmery blue maternity dress

I’m getting the hang of drafting my own sewing patterns using a sloper, and have been using up my fabric stash on making maternity dresses (number 3 is arriving in February). 

   
    
 
All of the back view pictures that I took came out blurry, unfortunately. I also haven’t done the final press yet, so there are some very noticeable wrinkles in the bottom tier. 

The bodice is lined with some fairly heavy interfacing, because the blue fabric is very light and shifty, so I wanted it to be a bit sturdier up top. The skirt has a separate lining, which keeps it perfect for twirling in.
