So, I’m back and I need to get some posts out of the way. I’ve decided to stop waiting for good pictures before I blog about all my past makes. Winter is coming and we still have no central heating so changing clothes once a day is painful enough, let alone go through it several times to pose for pictures. I do have a remote and a tripod by now, but I feel guilty using them for new pictures before I’ve blogged about everything else.
Overthinking it much?
Before I start showing you all the pictures I feel pretty confident in saying that I’m totally over maternity sewing. It SUCKS! It’s great when you need a new dress for a party, but basically you end up sewing a whole lot of stuff that won’t even fit you after a few weeks. And I know that I told myself that I would be wearing them after I gave birth but that’s one option I got over quickly.
Second of all, when I sew something I want people to be able to see. And it’s so freaking cold that I have to layer it with not one but multiple items so I end up wearing my home made garment but with nothing to show for.
So I decided that I would just try to get through the rest of my pregnancy with the clothes I already had. This includes my giant stash of sweater dresses which made me look chubby before, but now make me look pregnant. And that’s a win in my book.
Last of all is that I just looked at some pre-pregnancy shots and I can honestly say that my body wasn’t all that bad before, I just hope to get it back. I can’t really complain as the extra weight is only on my belly. Which doesn’t make me look pregnant from the back, but does make me look (and feel) like a whale when I look at myself from the side or the front.
So here goes…
Before you say “you don’t look like a whale”… These pics were all taken a few weeks ago.. You should see me now.
I’m not saying I won’t make anymore maternity clothes but I’ve given in to buying a coat and buying some long camis and some pants. With everything going on I just didn’t have the time to make all of them and I really needed them because it’s that cold.
I’m already planning my new post-maternity wardrobe, I’ve got lots of patterns and fabric at the ready. I might have to stick to knit dresses and nursing friendly tops for a while. But at least, it’ll be (almost) normal sized me again 🙂
That being said, I love my little baby so much!
(Unless it kicks my stomach or ribs, which makes me nauseous)
