So, I’ve made it to the pregnancy stage where anything stretchy or oversized is my VERY BEST friend (lovin’ Hubby’s t-shirts right now!). At 6 months, I’ve found that even elastic around my belly can be a little irritating after awhile. What about you? Click through to read the rest…
Do you have a t-shirt and some extra fabric laying around? Why not make a baby doll top? I had some plain t-shirts that no longer fit comfortably over my belly. I didn’t mind cutting them up, so I grabbed some matching fabric in a fun print and started choppin’ away! Click through to read the rest…
At 4 months pregnant, I’m still pretty comfortable, so I like to wear more structured pieces that fit close to the body on top, but have extra room for the baby; however, later in my pregnancy, comfort generally outweighs all of my fashion “preferences”. Woven fabrics are definitely out by then and anything with “stretch” becomes my new best friend. Click through to read the rest…
My name is Shannon and I blog over at Little Kids Grow. I’m so excited to be contributing to this fantastic site! I have a lot of ideas for “do it yourself” maternity wear that I hope will inspire you to create beautiful pieces for yourself during your pregnancy.
Next week I’ll begin posting tutorials, great finds, and lots of suggestions, but first I wanted to take a little time to introduce myself. Click through to read the rest…
