I’m going to be a BM in my brother’s wedding — problem is that my husband and I are TTC and I have no idea if I’ll be pregnant by then, and if so, how big.
I lucked out and found 2 dresses for sale on ebay in the exact brand, fabric, and color that my FSIL picked out (she is letting us choose the style we want) — one is even my normal size, so if I’m not pregnant then I’m all set.
My question — if I get pregnant, can a size 10 and a size 12 dress be sewn together to make 1 maternity dress. The two dresses are both cocktail length, but different styles — one is strapless and the other is a bateau neckline with a scoop back.
Is this possible?

It is possible; however, it will depend on the style of the dresses as to whether your particular dresses can be sewn together or not. Also, the fit will depend on the style of the dresses too. Your best bet would be to find a seamstress and show her, at the very least, pictures of the two dresses to see if it will be possible.

I would imagine, if they are both the same color and material that it would be easier to pick the dress that you like better and use the other one as material for extra panels to add width if you are pregnant. In other words, it might be easier to use one of the dresses as a source of extra material to alter the other dress.

She’s not getting married until next year, but I won’t know if I’m pregnant by the time she wants to order the dresses.
