I decided to go for a fit and flare type of silhouette to hopefully be more figure-flattering to my rectangular / pear-shape. My go-to pattern for a bodice has been McCall's M5972. It features darts at the bust and waist for a more precise fit. I then added a waistband and full skirt (easy to self-draft) with plenty of pleating (hides the tummy).

I'm glad I went with the waistband because it really carves out a waist on me. The print reminds me of golf.
And of course, a mini version for Baby E <3
Speaking of Baby E, anyone have any advice on how to stop a 10-month old from scaling the furniture? Even though I'm always within a few feet of her, I worry about the day that I'm not fast enough to catch her (she is speedy!).
