Introducing MN1006 the ruched maternity T, plus a *GIVEAWAY*!! [CLOSED]

April 27th, 2011

Well friends, I’m so excited to share with you my newest sewing pattern – MN1006 the Ruched Maternity Tshirt!! I’ve had a lot of requests for some maternity basics, and I think this adorable little top fits the bill perfectly!

It’s a ruched tshirt, that fits and flatters your baby bump at every stage of your pregnancy. And unlike most maternity tops it’s always long enough to cover your whole belly – and amazingly makes a super flattering post partum top too.

You can get it here!

To celebrate its release, I’m going to give away a pattern to one of you! Yay!!

If you’d like to be entered in the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post. That’s it!

[Though if you're super excited and can't wait to get it, you can always pop over to my store and pick up one now :) ]

A very special thanks to my friend Melissa of Dear Baby for modelling this top for me – isn’t she just the most adorable pregnant women ever?! Thanks sweetie!! Bigs hugs to you!

  4. ooh! me! I’d love this top in several colors. It looks a lot like an Old Navy Maternity one that I got as a gift and fits like a charm. But I’d much rather make more myself than shell out money to buy more!

  5. seeks says:

    I’m looking to try and make a present for a baby shower, and I’d love to make something that the mama can use during and after the pregnancy. This pattern would fit that bill quite well.
