I’ve been desperately trying to finish up my pile of half-completed sewing/mending projects. Amelie and I completed three out of four of them this afternoon (it’s that fourth one I’ve been dreading), so I’m almost ready to take on new projects.
Being that I have one short sleeve shirt and three pairs of maternity shorts (from Lia’s pregnancy, seven summers ago), I think it wouldn’t be amiss to sew a few clothes for myself. Easy clothes.
And not the ugly things that butterick, etc., call maternity clothes. Yuck. (Did any of you find a pattern that you liked? I haven’t spotted one yet…)
A dress for hot weather :: tiny happy makes shirring look super easy. Except that I don’t have the shirring elastic. Yet. And what kind of underclothing (<cough> undergirding) would I wear with this?
The easy maternity skirt from DIY maternity :: With a ruffle, perhaps?
But the real question is :: am I going to hide the varicose veins that are spreading like the black (and blue) plague over my right leg? Or do I wear them like a pregnancy badge of honor? (Skirts shorter or longer?)
