The Pretty Blouse

A couple of weeks ago I made myself a new top from the free Pretty Blouse pattern.  It is a cute little peasant style top that I thought would accommodate my growing belly. It can be found on the Sew Mama Sew website, and is made available by Amanda of  The Modern Marigold.

I used a poplin fabric that I purchased from  The fabric itself has a vintage linen feel to it, but paired with the piping along the front yoke, and the trim around the neck, I feel like I'm wearing my mother's maternity top-which isn't all bad.

The top is light and airy, perfect for summer. I also added a keyhole opening with button closure to the back, but I failed to get a decent shot, so you can just use your imagination.

I apologize for the lack of quality photos.  I've put off writing this post because I've been hoping to have my husband help me with the photos, but unfortunately I'm still dealing with camera issues, and these will just have to do.

So whether you're pregnant or not, the pretty blouse is a great summer top to add to your wardrobe.

Thanks for reading.  I have lots of new projects to share with you....just trying to resolve my technical issues.

So pretty! It does remind me a little of something my mom would have worn back in the 70's but that doesn't mean it's not totally cute!

Thanks for sharing about the pattern - some of my favorite maternity/transition shirts are a similar style and I was just thinking of how I should dissect them to make my own. And now I don't have to!

Wow! I'm impressed yet again! I have yet to tackle a top for myself, but you sure make it look easy. Nice work Tricia!
