Spring Maternity Scout

The weather is getting warmer, my belly is getting bigger and I needed a new t-shirt! The knit Scout Tee I made a few years ago fit pretty well up until recently so I decided that would be a good pattern to start with. When I pulled out my Scout pattern I realized that for the last woven version I made I added a curved hem and lowered the neckline. Both modifications seemed like a good idea for a maternity t-shirt so I decided to go with it!

The only other change I made was to add 3 inches in length. I also tried out a different neckline finish – Megan Nielsen’s binding technique. I like the way it turned out and will definitely use it again. I think it’s a particularly nice choice for heavier knits.

The fabric is a cotton knit from Stonemountain. I don’t see it on their website, but it’s a mid-weight knit and I believe the color is moss. Love this bright spring green. My mom and sister kindly did a little fabric shopping for me on their last visit to Stonemountain – thanks guys, good job!

Only one month to go! I’ve started browsing baby patterns and thinking about clothes that will work for breastfeeding. If you have any favorite patterns please share!

      Thanks Katharina! Not my usual color but it’s fun to branch out. Me too! That’s a whole new world of sewing to explore.

    Perfect maternity top! You look fantastic too. I think knit scouts would be perfect feedback tops. I was more of a fan of pulling up ie wearing tees rather than pulling down to feed – the scout would be perfect.

      Thanks for the advice & glad to know that this might work great for nursing. I may have to make some more!

    You’re looking really good, and I’m sure you’ll be able to wear this after the baby is born too. It looks lovely and comfy 🙂
