Happy Presidents’ Day!
To celebrate I get to giveaway one pattern from Megan Nielsen Patterns!
Have you checked her out? You should. She has great maternity and nursing wear patterns as well as some for every woman, pregnant or not.
Megan let me pick a pattern to test for all of you for the giveaway. So I hopped over to her site…
I wanted something that I could wear after the baby too. Something that would very nicely cover my post-pregnancy belly. :) I felt the Rie Dress was perfect!
The pattern was easy to follow and very well made. She really puts those tissue paper patterns to shame.
I do question now my choice of white knit for this dress. It makes my obvious belly…well, more obvious. It also requires a slip underneath. After pregnancy though I think it will be great for spring and summer.
I also plan on making another dress once I find a knit I like.
It’s a great dress to wear with a belt. Very versatile and comfortable.
And just because I couldn’t resist…
ha ha…one must laugh at oneself while doing something egocentric like taking pictures of oneself…
I have gained more weight with this pregnancy than with my others…not at first but I caught up quick by the middle. I feel like I have also popped out more. With Reid I stopped growing about this time due to some non-threatening complications and Owen was my first so…I wasn’t that big, even though I thought I was. :) I have gotten a few surprised “Whoa!” reactions from people who haven’t seen me in a while. Ha ha…it’s better than, “Due any day now huh?” Those statements bug me for some reason; probably because I’m moody and pregnant. Meh..
Until then, I’ll be staring out this window in the baby’s nursery…
ha ha…I wish! I have a couple more projects, another guest post, and a nice long before baby bucket list to tackle.
Have a great day!
