I’ve had a few questions about what the Two Seam Dress looks like unbelted, so i thought i’d quickly share with you another version i made, a two seam top!
I wore this top during my pregnancy almost once a week, and now that baby is out and I am feeding all the time, i’m also happy to report that this top makes a fantastic nursing top and cover up – i will have to take a few photos to show you what i mean! This one was made with more ease than the final tutorial i shared, and is also using a thicker stiffer jersey with much less drape. I think it shows pretty well what i had mentioned in the tutorial, with regards to the design working better with a thin drapey jersey.
To recreate this look use the Two Seam Dress tutorial but at the appropriate length for a top, and add a pair of DIY maternity shorts by remaking an old pair of shorts using one of our great tutorials:
- How to turn any pants into maternity pants
- Maternity trousers tutorial
- or use an existing pair of shorts paired with a handmade Belly band or a no sew belly band or even my rubber band maternity trick!
