Nursing Modification for the 1940s Swing Dress


Laura Singer has put together a photo tutorial to show how she modified my “Swing” Dress pattern to work for a nursing mother:


Hello Mrs. Chancey,

I contacted you a while ago about your recommendations for making the swing dress nursing friendly. I documented the process in a photo tutorial on my blog, which I hope will be useful to other nursing moms. Thanks again for your suggestions and also the lovely pattern! I have some finishing touches to put on the dress and then I plan to share some photos on the forum.


Laura’s tutorial is fantastic and so easy. Pop over to for all the details! (Thank you, Laura, for letting me re-post here!)
