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

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!!

    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!

    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.

  3. Tara says

    I have a version of this shirt in black and it’s very comfy. It doesn’t look bad on my 2 week postpartum belly either. I plan on ordering this pattern because I’d love to be able to make it in other colors.

  4. Felicity says

    I’d love to win this pattern. I’m already thinking of all the different colours I could make it into and with short and 3/4 sleeves.

  5. Jenny L says

    WOW I wish I had found you when I was pregnant with my first! Awesome! I would love to make this now that I’m working on another baby bump :)

    I would love to win this pattern. Finding cute maternity tops that r long enough for my daughters is very hard. Thanks for the cute pattern.

    Love your website. I have already made the wrap around top and the cardiwrap. Both great. Please enter me in the comp.

  9. Lacey says

    I’m 4 months pregnant with my first baby and my clothes are starting to get snug. A pattern like this would be so helpful!!

  10. Chelsi Biehl says

    I have been wanting to make a shirt like this for a long time, but didn’t want to have to come up with all the measurements. Thank you for doing it for me, and I would love to win one!!!

    Yay! I love clothes and one tends to feel frumpy if they must wear the same clothes over and over so some diy wardrobe enhancing is just what I need.
