Handmade update 10….

It is all about the Plantains and maternity wear today. 

I needed a few new comfy shirts and looked for a decent free pattern and was really pleased my search found The Plantain t-shirt by Deer & Doe patterns. A great Tee to sew and a lovely pattern which is free – perfect. 

I made myself one in this very pretty t-shirting from Abakhan fabrics….

This one is a modified Plantain for my daughters maternity wardrobe. Same size cut out for her but then ruched at the side by stitching in some stretched elastic along the inside seam allowance. It fits beautifully.  I also made the same in a plain grey.  Striped fabric from Minerva was a bargain on sale. 

This is one of three maternity skirts. The Erin pattern from Megan Nielsen. These look amazing on her – the other two and the dress hack of the skirt are without the ruffle.  

Then a short sleeved version of the maternity Plantain. This gorgeous stripe is also from Minerva and cost around £2 because of the sale….

And to finish off the day, a Pom-Pom bunny made by Miss M …. he is so ugly we may as well say he is cute – but not where she can hear! 😁
