Before I show you my new (and rather fantastic, if I do say so myself) Kwik Sew maternity top, I thought I would share a photo of my new and massive pillow.
As you can see, it takes up a whole side of our king size, so if you have to share a small bed, you may have some placement issues. Otherwise, it’s fantastic – it’s like being wrapped in a big hug all night! When I’m not sleeping with it, Taylor has decided that it makes the perfect pillow to lounge on while watching t.v. – at least I’m getting my money’s worth with this item!
Now…. to the new top!
Typically when I make a garment for the second time, it goes a lot faster. However, I spent so much time fiddling with the contrast fabric (getting it to lay flat enough to sew, finding the right stitches that wouldn’t eat the fabric, etc.) that it seemed to take forever. Thankfully, that was only a small part of the sewing and the horse-bit jersey was a dream to work with.
Now who says maternity wear can’t be stylish? I feel so trendy in this top, I just love it – in fact I can’t wait for it to warm up some so I can wear this out without freezing!
