Oh how I miss crop tops, the don’t really hit the pregnant women in the right way. So this was my take on it and I LOVE how it turned out. I don’t even mind my belly sticking out a little. And I’m excited to wear it when I don’t have a belly. This was made from one of the lovely Megan Nielsen’s maternity patterns, the Rie dress or top. I just made it a little shorter and widened the neckline a bit. Thinking back to last pregnancy, I had given up by then. I would wear oversized tee shirts and black leggings or yoga pants everyday, looking like an old man with a quite the impressive gut. Man, was I attractive.
I love how this turned out….just grab an oversized sweater from the thrift store (or your husband’s closet) and take a little out in the upper area, leaving the belly area oversized. Well, unless you have a REALLY big sweater, then downsize it down there too.
Thanks Meta for taking the pics…check her out, she is AMAZING! onemoremushroom on instagram.

I finally popped this top on, not sure if it would fit over my ever growing belly….and luckily it does! WAHOO! Another top I can wear and feel comfy in. Love when that happens. People still ask me how I made this top, and I realized today that I have made 2 almost exact tutorials for this top. And now you know this will work for when you are prego! Here is the from scratch tutorial (take out the peter pan collar and shorten it) and the refashion tutorial – I combined them to make it easier below. SO easy and flattering….pregnant or not!
