Pregnancy is such an exciting time, especially for us sewists, because it gives us an excuse to create a whole new handmade wardrobe! My baby is due in just a few short weeks, but over the past 9 months I’ve really enjoyed my new found curves. Knits and jerseys have become my fabric of choice thanks to the comfort they offer my changing body shape.
This knit tunic top is a free Japanese sewing pattern from the popular fabric brand, NaniIRO. It’s not originally supposed to be for maternity, but the shape and length of the tunic perfectly accommodates a growing belly. The great thing is that the loose cut will make this top suitable for nursing once your little one arrives.
