Hey there! I had a baby! Amazingly she’s already 10 weeks old. I’m so glad to be able to wear some of my handmade wardrobe again. Happy to say the maternity t-shirts I made have been getting plenty of wear. Here’s a favorite combo now that our weather is warming up: a Linden top and a knit half circle skirt.
The Linden top is made from a printed knit from Stonemountain. I love the way the print works with the raglan sleeves. I’m tempted to try this pattern in a woven next – maybe a Nani Iro double gauze?
The skirt is made from my favorite eco bamboo knit, also from Stonemountain. It is a little bit clingier than I would like but otherwise lovely. I used Megan Nielsen’s free circle skirt pattern to make the skirt but instead of a full circle I made a half circle.
So, sewing with a newborn… Over the last few weeks I’ve sewn a t-shirt and cut out a skirt. Not the speediest sewing but it feels great to squeeze in a little creative time. Now I’m off to wait for the next elusive baby nap to put together my new skirt.
