I love naming things I sew. Makes me feel cool.
So, I actually sewed this two years ago after my little man was born as a post-baby aka hide-my-flub outfit. I made this pattern according to my measurements, and ended up just swimming in it. It was just huge and frumpy, and kinda the last thing I wanted to wear right then. I wore it once. and never even bothered to hem it.
Recently I was weeding out some stuff from my closet, and this was the first thing to go into my repurpose pile.
This morning I was craving something comfy and just feeling a dress, and I passed my sewing desk and spied this jumper, and thought…hmmm, I wonder what it would look like as a maternity jumper?
Great! I threw on a belt (my newest favorite from the thrift store–so stretchy!), and found it improved it infinitely. I hemmed it, made some quicky alterations, and sported it happily today. I’m so stoked to add this jumperto my ‘drobe!
and p.s. can you BELIEVE that belly button action?! Oh man, OUT OF CONTROL. What an unbelievable phenomenon of nature.
