I love Alyson’s maternity sweater dress best–she looks great!

These sweater dresses are so cute and don’t need to be maternity! I had my baby in October and even at the end I was still able to wear a non-maternity sweater dress with leggings.

I really like Hilary’s and Allyson’s dresses. Not so crazy about Jessica’s, but it’s not bad.
