All wrapped up in red

And finally here's my third Megan Nielsen maternity pattern complete!  And it turned out pretty good I think!

Its the Wrapped Maternity top.  It uses a ton of fabric (and a ton of thread hemming the two wrap pieces, but was well worth it.  Still a pretty easy sew, and it looks cute.

It does though take some time to wrap and adjust properly, but I like that I'll be able to adjust the length later and wear it post maternity too.  Its cross over front will make for a good nursing top too!

I made it about 2 weeks ago (pre-KCWC), so that's my 30 week belly, and it's growing these days!

Also a few words on the pants.  I got my hands on a pair of second hand, barely worn Gap maternity cords, and used this tutorial from Cotton and Curls to make them into skinnies.  Perfect for fall!

I had a few more maternity projects planned, but I may give up soon, as I only have 4 more weeks of work left, and a ton of other stuff I need to get done for this baby!  We'll see, perhaps you just start seeing more sewing for teeny babies here instead!


  1. I love that color on you! You have to be the cutest pregnant lady ever!

  2. It looks great! I specifically didn't make this pattern because I didn't want to spend the money on the yardage, but I do love how it looks, and I will be curious to hear if you find it useful after the baby comes. I get a lot of wear out of my cross-over nursing tops these days. P.S. Your pants look fab! I wanted to skinny-ify some of my maternity pants but I never got around to it. Well done.

    1. Thanks! And yeah, it is a lot of yardage (or should I say meterage cause I'm in Canada? and is that even a word? :-), but I was ok with it because I knew I could get some knit cheap on sale!
