I just realized the other day that most of you guys who don't know me personally haven't heard the BIG news...I'm pregnant! We're expecting a little girl, and the due date is November 18th. I plan to have her at home again with the same midwives that delivered Elliot here, 18 months ago. We are pretty excited!
I feel bad that I haven't mentioned it before now, but I've been feeling so good, and am just now (at 5 1/2 months) starting to feel really pregnant--big and achy and all that good stuff.
I've also started sewing maternity clothes! Last time I was pregnant in the winter, so most of my clothes were winter clothes. Maternity clothing is ridiculously overpriced, and I've been experimenting with converting skirts and pants into maternity. So far I've been really pleased with the results, so be on the lookout for more pictures and a tutorial in the next few days.
I made this lavender shirt a couple weeks ago from some nice knit fabric I found on the clearance table at Hancock's. Total cost: $0.91 =)
I traced the pattern off of a rtw shirt that I liked. The fit isn't exactly the same, but I think that's because it's a slightly different type of knit. I like it though, and hope to make a few more.
