First of all, it’s been way too long….insanely too long. I had every good intention of posting more of my sewing projects but the Holidays hit, traveling occurred, and, oh yeah, we got pregnant again! :) So, needless to say, I was pretty exhausted the first trimester right after the holidays and am finally back on the energy train and sewing wagon…whatever that means.
Anyway, I have been wanting to work more and more on sewing my own clothes including maternity as of late. I follow this site called DIY Maternity which is all about inspiration for creating your own maternity clothes (brilliant) and they linked to a contest at A Jennuine Life. Contests, for me at least, are a great way to get going on a project that I would otherwise put off longer. I missed the maternity part of the contest but I have 2 ideas for the Being (or nursing) as well as the Been (or postpartum) part. The latter is still in design stage but I’m excited to show my entry for the Nursing part. I hope to make another top soon and plan to photograph and document every step so that I can post the tutorial here.
