Since becoming pregnant, I have noticed a serious lack of affordable, pretty, and modest maternity wear. Its so frustrating, knowing I’ll wear something for 4 or 5 months only, and that stores expect me to pay over R300 per top. So I decided to buy some patterns and get sewing. Easier said than done… we couldn’t find a single maternity pattern. In the end my mom and I settled for some tunic style tops, and planned to just widen them or something, to fit my tummy.
Last Saturday I made this top… it did take me about 7 hours from start to finish, but it looks nice and is fairly comfy actually. I will just never try that material again, it was super slippery and I thought I was going to scream. Hopefully when the curtains and wrap that I have to make are done, I shall attempt another top, but from cotton rather.
