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!
A question I’ve been getting a lot recently is where to find good jersey knit fabrics for my sewing patterns and tutorials. I know it can seem a little tough trying to find knits at first, but don’t be disheartened!!

Today I have the pleasure of sharing a little DIY Maternity Refashion with you. I’m currently preggers with girl #2 and have been having so much fun creating maternity wear. Living in an area where there isn’t much to begin with (as far as maternity clothing), really spurred me on to be a little creative this pregnancy with my clothing. In this post, I’m going to show you how I created this top from a thrift store dress.
When you begin nursing a baby you quickly figure out that you need nursing pads to protect your clothing (and pride!) from leaks. There are some good disposable ones, but most are scratchy and uncomfortable, and if you use them as much as I did with my first baby – you end up spending a fortune. The reusable fabric ones are therefore a Godsend – but then unfortunately, they all seem to be unbelievably expensive for what they are!
That’s okay though, we can make our own – and they’re soooo easy!
As we talked about in our last post, one of the first clothing issues you’ll notice early on in your pregnancy is that very soon you can’t do up your pants. But a belly band can help you wear your regular pants for longer, by allowing you to leave your pants unzipped, and both covering up the gap over your lower abdomen, and holding your pants up.
