Hi lovely ladies!!
I’ve been getting some requests for some super easy beginner level maternity creations – and I think this one fits the bill perfectly! I really love how it turned out. It takes a rather boring tshirt and makes it into something really flattering and super cute. I just love projects where a small amount of effort makes a huge difference!
Okay, lets make one!
Hi! This is Blanca from Tes Pes al Miayo. I am a mother of two year old twins, boy and girl, that are, of course, the love of my life. I work as a full time engineer, so I only get to sew (and blog) at night… and I’m not a big photographer, that’s why all my pictures look so dim. I have little experience in blogging but, thanks to my mum and grandma, I have been sewing almost all my life. My technique may not be fully pro, but most of the time things turn out just fine!
I offered my modest blogging and sewing skills to Megan, and guess what? She accepted! Thank you, Megan, for having me.
Hello there, DIY maternity readers! I am super excited to be visiting here. I’m Jenn from A Jennuine Life. A while back, I hosted my first blog competition, and Megan honored my little blog with both an inspiration post, and a prize offering - amazing, right!?
When Megan put out the call for a little help, I jumped on the opportunity to return the favor! Here’s a post I put together as part of my Mother to Be, Being, Been competition which focused on DIY fashions for pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum Moms.
Hi there. I’m Sara from Craft Snob and pregnant with number 3 (it’s a girl!). Megan has been kind enough to let me share a simple tutorial on how to turn any oversized skirt into a maternity empire waist skirt.
This top is just such a winner. I love it so much that it’s one of the few things that I made as maternity wear, but still wear now. I think you gals are really going to like it!
I’ve been seeing a lot of maxi skirts around at the moment – and it suddenly struck me that a jersey maxi skirt would make incredibly comfy and flattering maternity wear!
I think this skirt was a huge success, and it took me under half an hour to make. How awesome is that??
I’m a huge fan of cropped cardigans. Like, HUGE! hehe. I just think they’re such a useful thing to have in your wardrobe, especially when you’re pregnant. I love that can completely change the look of an outfit, and i love cropped ones because they sit so nicely above your baby bump! Wearing a normal cardigan can be kind of awkward when you’re pregnant, and a lot of maternity ones, just look, kind of odd (you know?!). The other thing i like is that they’re not as hot as normal cardigans, so you can wear them in summer… and when you’re nursing (maybe over one of these!)
That’s why a cropped cardigan is the perfect solution!
Even better, you can make one from an old or thrifted cardigan. Lets do it!
