Wow, it’s amazing how many of you have been in touch complaining about maternity wear, and asking that I put together some DIY projects that not only look great but work for a changing bod… Well here goes!
I had always planned to make so many of my pregnancy outfits, and in the last few weeks, I’ve finally got down to it. In truth, in the earlier months my bump was a bit underwhelming (I’ve heard this can be the case first time around) so there wasn’t a huge need for full-on maternity gear (just a few tweaks here and there I will share with you soon). But now, ze bump is getting bigger! And has since around 25 weeks, so it’s time to get crafty. And (aside from the back pains and constant waking in the night to pee) I’m quite excited for this bit! My goal for maternity gear is that it doesn’t feel like it – it comfortable and perfect for a changing body but not something you’ll want to burn post pregnancy. Enter item number one – the shirred skirt.
