Nursing Friendly House Dress

I decided I needed a nursing friendly house dress at around 7 months pregnant. I still had plenty of my favorite knit fabric left over from the LA fabric district and black 12″ invisible zippers, so I got right to it! This is the Santa Fe Top by Hey June lengthened to be a dress (no maternity adjustments). I love … Continue reading “Nursing Friendly House Dress”

Maternity Capsule Wardrobe

I finished sewing a few tees last December, and at around 15 weeks pregnant, I realized I was going to need some more comfortable pants to get me through since me and maternity jeans don’t really get along.

This dress was inspired by a dress I pinned years ago (photo below), and when I saw this fabric I knew it … Continue reading “Ace&Jig Inspired Dress”

Cheyenne Tunic

One of my goals for this year was to make a button up shirt. I had the Cheyenne Tunic on my “make nine” last year, but I chickened out and made excuses. I was SO happy when Allie announced that January would be Indiesew’s “Shirt Month”! I immediately decided that this was the year, and January was the month! I didn’t start making … Continue reading “Cheyenne Tunic”
