Dressing for two
Sunday 02 May 1999
Formes seems to be the most popular label for key maternity pieces such as drawstring trousers, jeans (with trendy turn-ups), knits and formal wear. The only complaint is its prices: pounds 68 for a pair of trousers is a tad expensive when you have prams and cots to think about. Jigsaw is a good alternative: it has done a fantastic crinkle double-layered silk georgette shirt (pounds 48) and dress (pounds 98), and both come with their own little bag. Plus there's no ironing involved. If money is no object, then something from Ghost or Pleats Please (the pleats expand with the bump) could be the answer. At least then you have the option of wearing the item afterwards, so you can tell yourself that it's value for money in the long run.
