Oh my gosh it feels like I’ve been holding onto this post for absolute weeks while I finalised/finished the pattern. So anyway, I can’t believe what a huge response there has been to my maternity sewing patterns – they’ve been so incredibly popular that I’ve realised it must be really hard to find maternity and nursing sewing patterns, and after a lot of requests for more of the same, I’ve been working my little butt off, and am soooo excited to be releasing my newest PDF sewing pattern. I have to admit though, that I’m not a fan of things that only work in one stage of life, so I’ve really worked hard to make sure that this pattern works well no matter who you are – if you’re pregnant, nursing, or just want to wear a cute jersey dress.
This is my favourite pattern so far because it’s so versatile. Like my other patterns this one will work as wonderful nursing or maternity wear, but this time you will have the option of further personalizing the design. The pattern includes instructions on how to make a top with short, ¾ or long sleeves, a dress with short, ¾ or long sleeves, and a dress with a ruffled hem with short, ¾ or long sleeves. It’s an entire wardrobe, in one pattern. I think I now need to sleep for a week because of how long it took to make the pattern and all samples I made to test the grading and different options. (I’ll be showing you how some of the other options look over this week).
So to celebrate and kick it off I’ve decided to give away not only the pattern but this sample dress (it’s a size Medium). So that means 2 people can get lucky. yay! (Also please note that though I’m calling this maternity wear, it isn’t exclusively as I’m obviously not pregnant and I’m wearing it, so don’t feel like you have to be pregnant or a mommy to enter :) )
