Sewing your own maternity wardrobe can seem like a daunting task. And even though I sew many of my own clothes, I was hesitant at first. But today I’m going to share a little secret with you, and it involves investing very little time or money with amazing outcomes!
For the first little while after having a baby my size and shape are constantly changing. I usually wear some of my maternity clothing for the first couple of months, but eventually I don’t fit into my maternity clothing and also don’t fit into my pre-pregnancy clothing. I have a tiny wardrobe for that in between stage, but all my tops and dresses need to be nursing-friendly. Luckily, here are thirteen non-maternity sewing patterns that are all perfectly nursing-friendly, but they don’t scream nursing-friendly! (And three are free!)
If you’ve ever gotten stuck tried to put on the Alissa maternity top sewing pattern – never fear! The very lovely Monica of Toronto Mommy has created a short video on how to wrap my Alissa maternity top sewing pattern. You can read Monica’s full review of the Alissa wrapped maternity top on her blog here.
