belly+baby maternity top pattern review

Hey guys! Have you heard of Megan Nielsen patterns? For our last Belly+Baby post (yeah I know we’re a little late oops), Kate, Shauna and I got to try out some of her patterns! I love this ruched maternity top-I only wish I’d got my hands on it sooner in this pregnancy! The fit is perfect and it’s so comfortable yet flattering. (as flattering as anything can be at 37 weeks pregnant hehe)

I think I got this fabric from a long time ago, and although it’s a bit busy I like how it turned out! The only thing I did differently from the pattern was I used bias tape to finish off the neckline. It’s a great pattern and I really liked how simple it was to make.

See what Kate and Shauna made!

And see all our previous belly+baby projects linked up below!
