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

Apr 27, 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!!
