I’m pregnant and beyond thrilled to welcome our first little one. I’ve been sewing up a storm for him and can’t wait to show it all off soon.
But lets be honest.
Gaining weight and feeling like a whale is not fun.
I have a hard time buying maternity clothes because they are either crazy priced expensive or just not cute and fit horribly. I have been going with the size up shirts and leggings.
Now that I’m in my third trimester, the maternity clothes are starting to be a necessity. It’s a perfect time to try out some patterns that I think would be pregnant woman friendly. I might not get to all of them but if I don’t set some wish list goals then I know I won’t get to any of them.
Indie Sew is one of my favorite places to get inspired for garment making and they didn’t fail with having a few options that I think will be perfect for my ever growing belly. If you haven’t made it over to visit their site. GO NOW! Allie has done a fantastic job curating the patterns on her site and even has seasonal collections that are TO DIE FOR!!!! Once I’m not pregnant I’ll be sewing up a storm!!!! And if you have never sewn a garment, their blog is fantastic at teaching you the how to’s of garments.
I’ve picked 5 different garments that I’m hopefully going to get to. Each of them is special in their own way and none of them are maternity specific but should work really well!
First up, I’ve picked the super cute and *looks* super comfy Rosaline Dress by KZJO’Studio. I think this would be so cute in a winter knit fabric with leggings and boots. Plus add a belly bump. Perfect.
Next up I picked the super precious SoHo Blouse by See Kate Sew. This top has been on my sewing wish list for a while and I think the flowy bottom would be perfect for maternity and after. I’ve got a few rayon/lawn prints laying around that are calling my name for this top. Hopefully I’ll get to sew it this month.
A staple in the closet, the Eleanor Cardigan by KZJO’Studio is a perfect wear now, wear later maternity outfit. I have tons of solid maternity tees and this would make a super cute addition to them. Add a fun necklace to dress it up and you are good to go! I’m thinking about going with a french terry in navy!
Up next I picked the Bethioua Top by Elle Puls. It looks so cute and comfy. After it came out with the Winter Collection, I’ve been dying to make it. I think with a nice drapy knit, the fit would be really cute even as a maternity shirt. I’m on the hunt for the perfect fabric.
My last *not least* pick is the Wanderer Tunic by Striped Swallow Designs. I’ve been holding onto some RK chambray dots that are perfect for this. I think a blue chambray dot with a fun color on top….swooooooonworthy! It might be put at the top of my list pretty quickly!!!!
Well…..I’ve got some good plans.
Now just to see if I can accomplish at least two of them this month!!!!
