I know it probably makes very little sense to make new maternity clothing 5 weeks before your due date – but that’s when i made this crop top.
Whatever, sometimes you just need something new right?! I’ve been pretty good this time round at keeping my maternity wardrobe tight – but still, i couldn’t help myself wanting something fresh at the end.
I used my wrap maternity top pattern to create the crop top, (the cropped variation with elbow length sleeves) – If you’ve got the Simplicity 1468 version of the pattern, it’s view A. If you have the original printed version of the wrapped maternity top, then it’s a really simple alteration to the pattern piece – you can get the updated instructions here.
It was a really quick sew and very satisfying. And on the plus side – i think it’ll be good for nursing too. Yay! I may even add a skirt to it later to make it into a dress – Ooooo or maybe a peplum!
