Take 2 Maternity Top

Here is another top I did a few weeks ago using Simplicity 2657.

Maternity Top

I made the back piece a lot longer width wise so I could just shirr it and not have to add a zipper or anything. Easy to slip on and off.

The bottom part actually came from I dress I had in my “refashion” pile. I would say it went to good use :)

I have plans to do the “My Favorite Top” tutorial and a few other pieces of clothing, so be on the lookout if you are interested. PS, Shannon did an AMAZING Maternity Sewing Tutorial Roundup. I highly suggest you check it out if you are preggers and sew! Enjoy your weekend :)

    Super cute. I love the shirring idea, too. I have a top that I just put together on a whim the other day and didn’t put a zipper or hook closure on it and it is like squeezing into a sausage. I love the idea of the shirring instead and it would make sewing it up so much easier. Fun.

    Oh how CUTE!!! I recently found your blog, and was so grateful for trendy mama, and belly beautiful ideas. 6.5mo along on #1, and excited to sew for this little nugget too :) Thanks for the hope!
