Another finished maternity top--and I think this one was my favorite. :) This is Megan Nielsen's Ruched Maternity Top. I sewed a size small, and I'm very happy with the fit through the bust & belly. I did find that the shoulders were a touch too big (though I'm finding that this is a common issue I have--in RTW and patterns). Next time I'll sew an XS through the shoulders.
S4076, I think the neckline gathers from that pattern would dress this up just a touch.
The tummy gathers are just right though, I like that the front is ruched but the back piece is not. The length is generous without being too much. I have no doubt that this top will last me straight to the end!
This pattern came together just as quickly as the other, and I have to say, it's the most professional looking hem that I've ever done. I used my old standby, the twin needle & wooly nylon on the bobbin, but I also paired it with my walking foot this round. The results are stellar, if I may say so myself. :) Can't wait to whip up 10 more of these babies (the shirt--not 10 more actual human babies)! :)
