Well as promised before Christmas, I’ve been working away and created a little tutorial for all of you on how to make a wrap cardigan.
I absolutely love wrap cardigans. They’re especially flattering and versatile for pregnant women. I’ve seen gorgeous ones on Anthropologies website many times, and I seriously considered buying this gap cardigan . I never bought either sweater because I’m one of those terrible people who’s always thinking to myself “I could make that soooo easily, so I really shouldn’t buy it”… what makes it worse is that I hardly ever actually make these things. I feel like it makes me some sort of a hypocrite if I say I can make it but never do, you know? So I decided to make my take on both cardi’s.
I love this maternity top – I’m living in it. Whats even better is I made it from an oversized white mens tshirt.
It’s hard to find a good maternity coat – especially reasonably priced ones – that are warm – and stylish. hmmm. So I decided to make my own. So after much discussion, many late nights, cries of frustration and hours of hard work, here it is hot off the sewing machine, my wonderful new winter coat! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
Oh my gosh I’m majorly crushing on this coat!!!
One thing I’ve learnt over two pregnancies, is to embrace elastic! Even better I like things that will work whether I’m pregnant or not.
I love this simple maternity DIY. This top started off as a men’s dress shirt, (in fact it’s the shirt my husband wore on our very first date). I couldn’t bear to part with it. But I’ve been feeling a little lazy and tired so I wanted to make my life easy.
A good pair of maternity jeans are an absolute necessity for your pregnant wardrobe – unfortunately, the bad ones are pretty bad and the good ones can run close to $100. The good news is that you can easily make your own by altering a pair of existing jeans or pants.
