Sewing maternity clothing, take two

As you may have guessed by the lack of posting, I didn't really follow through with this edition of KCW. Whoops. I finished the sun hat (yay!), but then I was all "It's sooo hot and I'm sooo huge and tired," and I gave up on everything ever sewing for the rest of the week.

I don't know whether it's the heat (oh my god, so hot), the fact that there's a toddler to take care of, or just me being a couple of years older this go-round, but damn, the last couple weeks of this pregnancy have been so much harder than I remember from any of the pregnancy with Adelaide. I can't help but complain about it a little bit (sorry), but at least I am sparing you pictures of my puffy feet and such. Instead, I will show you pictures of something I made for myself before KCW and the horrid heat wave of doom.

This skirt may not be much to look at, but it is quite comfortable and filled an immediate wardrobe need (the need to not wear the same skirt to work every single day). It took about an hour to sew up and used about a yard and half of fabric (some of the same purple interlock I used for Adelaide's shorts). It adequately covers me, is really comfy and breezy, and doesn't fall down, so I am rating it a total success. Hey, look, not all my homemade maternity-wear has been a complete failure!

I just winged it, but there are a ton of tutorials out there for similar skirts (both maternity and non), so I'm not going to bother with a more detailed how-to. Basically: rectangles. Nice.

That looks so comfy! I would've loved a skirt like that in my later pregnancy. Not long for you now, right?

Not long at all! Now that it's August, we're officially in the Month This Kid Had Better Be Born!
