Megan Nielsen Maternity Collection Lookbook!!

You guys! i’m so excited to finally be able to share with you the lookbook for my maternity sewing patterns! It’s been a long time coming and lots and lots of work – but i’m so thrilled to finally put all these pieces together in a lookbook!

We all had such a blast working on these shots – and i think the fun of the day really shows through. I really love it when everything comes together perfectly. And seriously, could our model be more perfect? i think not – she rocked it!

I really can’t wait to hear what you think!! i’m just so excited to share them with you all!! I really hope you enjoy them!! i know i already said that but i’m just that excited hehehehe Eeeeek! *excitable shrieking!* 

ok evidently i need to calm down… i’ll go get a coffee now hehehe

Please feel free to share them, pin them, whatever!

Meg XOXO

These are amazing!! I won’t be needing them for several years, but will definitely want to try them when I do!! You seem to have done an awesome job with fit and how they lay! Must be hard to do, but total success!!

Oh Megan these are just beauuuuutiful!!! The Wrapped Top is worth getting pregnant for alone, surely? Everytime a friend of mine announces she’s preggers my first thought is, “Ooh, shall I make Megan’s top?” I’m far too selfish, but maybe one day!

Megan they all look wonderful. I wish I was still pregnant so I could buy some of these patterns, but we lost our little boy just before I put the order in. Next time maybe. I have Briar’s to make instead.

I can say 1001 nursing top/dress is AMAZING (wish I had time to make more of them!).

Can I say that the shoes are just AMAZING as well (sorry to be off the topic!) but you HAVE to let us know about them too!

As you say it’s been a long time coming but WOW…it was worth the wait! I bought the nursing nightwear and the maternity survival pack when I was pregnant with my daughter and they are all such lovely patterns! The place you shot the lookbook is amazing. Your styling is, as always, spot on and the model is beautiful.

It was such a lovely day to – to say that there was a thunder storm the night before…I love the Australian weather – I got married on Hamilton Island and the day we landed it was cold and raining….i was panicking!!! But by the next morning it was bright and beautiful weather just like you seemed to have!

Wow, these look fantastic! It’s great to be able to see the designs on a ‘real life pregnant woman’ rather than just the line drawings. I’ll definitely be buying these patterns in a few years time!

Hi! Your lookbook is simply gorgeous as all the patterns. Are you planning to make also a PDF version of them? I live in Italy and I need to buy the patterns online and the shippping rates, the duty fares and the shipping delays (or steals) make me hesitate… Thank you

This lookbook makes me want to get pregnant again! And after barely surviving a crazy pregnancy with twins, thats really saying something! Id love to see how some of the tops look on non pregnant peeps as well- especially the wrap top! Any pics to post? Also, the leggings are TDF- please tell me you are putting out a pattern for those!
