My mother for most of my life has worked in the garment and fashion industry. So when I told her that I was sick of buying maternity clothes and struggling to find things to wear, she was quick on the industrial Singer to start stitching up a line of comfy maternity clothes for me. In total she made me three things with still more to come.
I love this top. But it also makes me laugh because growing-up we had cushions made out of this material and since the pattern of the fabric is square and so is the shape of the shirt, it really reminds me and my sister of our 1970′s couch outfitted with these cushions. Great reuse of fabric I say.
The real beauty of this shirt is that it is airy, made from cotton, and has lots and lots of room for my growing belly! Post baby it wouldn’t take much to cinch it in and wear without a baby bump.
