Shortly before I found out that I was pregnant I had finished a relatively successful few months of trial and error in sewing for myself. I learned what sort of styles and fabric I want to wear, what is worth spending money on, and what isn’t. I also learned a bit more about what I actually enjoy sewing, and what sort of things I don’t find to be worth the time or effort. The successes were fun and invigorating. I felt like I was hitting my stride.
Though I was surprised, I was also delighted to discover that I was pregnant again this summer for a whole host of reasons. But maternity sewing for myself was not one of them. 🙂 Which is okay.
However, I was delighted to discover that my beloved Inari Dress pattern would still work for me for the first half of my pregnancy, and without any maternity modifications. Woo hoo!!! I don’t have tons of extra brainpower to spare these days, or extra energy, and I really wanted something that I didn’t have to think too much about.
I made this Inari Tunic pictured above and I love it. I’m 16 weeks along in this picture and I still have some room to spare, though I would have even more if it was a stretchy material, I love the structure of this fabric and the print is incredible. Get all of the details here.
