DIY Drawstring Skirt

November 6th, 2013

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? (more…)

Megan Nielsen’s Ruched Maternity Skirt

May 29th, 2012
This purple maternity pencil skirt was designed by the lovely Megan Nielsen, made by me. I was thinking it would be a casual knit skirt that I could throw on here and there, but after I made it and tried it on, it is quite a sexy little number! Well, for a prego women anyway. I’m loving all these maternity patterns!
I’m SO bummed that everyone has decided to leave me in Utah to go and further their education to provide for their family or something…pshhhh. What about me?! Just kidding, I know that one day this would happen, I just didn’t know it would happen all at once. I currently have 5 siblings and 3 in-laws and a niece here, but a few short months from now, 9 will become 3. My brother is leaving on his mission tomorrow morning (don’t even get me started about that one…it will make me cry), my other two brothers with fam are moving to Ohio for law school and medical school. And they ALL decided to leave around the same time.
So this little shindig was a last minute invite for Mike and Emily (and baby Rosie) knowing that in the next few days they will be packed up and headed out to Ogden for a little stint, then on to Ohio for bigger and better things. It was quite the party! I actually cooked chicken, and it was fully cooked mind you and I prepared a raspberry vinaigrette salad (what?! I never go past a pre packaged caesar salad from costco). Beck sucessfully, for the first time rode his tricycle and Emily snapped some awesome shots of baby Rosie’s Mad face and tried really hard to get a good angle on my extremely enormous belly in that cute maternity pencil skirt. Can you believe I’m that big already?! Anyway, I’m going to miss all the family, and I wish them good luck. Love you all.

Very gathered A-line maternity skirt

May 14th, 2012
top/sunglasses: f21   skirt: self-made   shoes: steve madden
Sarah Jane, amazing illustrator, makes fabric patterns and prints and asked me to make a very gathered a-line skirt for her! And of course I couldn’t resist, especially when I saw her amazing anchor fabric she illustrated. This skirt is super easy and happens to be an amazing maternity skirt and non-maternity skirt (Sarah is not prego!) due to the elastic and the intense gathering. It has the illusion that there is a zipper from the front with the flat waistband. I really think this is my favorite way to make a waist band now.

Maternity style (and comfort): leggings and pants

May 8th, 2012
purple leggings: oasap
I’m loving all the fun colors and patterns that leggings and maternity pants come in this year! And let me say, leggings are a pregnant girl’s best friend. They are SO dang comfy! Be adventurous this Summer and buy some crazy pants or leggings….who says you can’t look trendy and fun too. Don’t let that big belly get in the way! Go for the tribal, animal, neon, floral, polka dot, rubbery, or just colored leggings look(make it a fun color). Did I mention you will be comfortable and stylin’?
And that goes for you non-prego women too of course :)

Jersey Maternity Maxi skirt

July 15th, 2011

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??
