Tunic Top DIY + Pattern Review 2147

I’m over joy about being a mommy; however one of the biggest challenges has been finding nice, fashion forward maternity clothes or maternity clothes in general. I’ve been a bit hesitant about making my own clothes simply because I didn’t want to invest the time nor the money sewing something that I would only wear for just a while. However I so happened to have a free day, a pattern that worked great as a maternity top and I had the perfect knit print fabric in my stash just screaming to be cut and sewn.

The pattern I used was Simplicity 2147 it was perfect as a maternity top or dress because the design was loose giving enough room to my ever growing belly.

My Wedding

As you know this past June I got married to the love of my life!! Our wedding day was magical, and beautiful I was the happiest bride ever. Although, it took a lot of planning and a lot of DIY projects at the end it was well worth it. I enjoyed every minute of it and I would not change a thing! Some of the DIY projects included; ring bearer pillow, flower baskets, invitations, sash, groom’s handkerchief, cupcake stand and my veil. My sister took on the most complicated DIY project my bouquet, this was no ordinary bouquet. She made the most beautiful broach bouquet, thank you sis!! I will forever treasure it.

Our wedding pallet consisted of blush, dark gray, and sliver.
The ring bearer pillow was a piece of cake; I drafted a simple square pattern. I bought this iridescent pink/dark grey fabric, which had diamonds pleats integrated. I added ribbon and a small broach to make it pretty and so it could be cohesive with the flower girls baskets, and broach bouquet.


Its A...

Don’t worry is not what you think….(your thinking I’ve lost interest) well no I love fashion it’s my passion and I have big dreams.
So what has happened then? Well let’s just say I do have a personal life aside from fashion. This past June I got married to the love of my life!! There was a lot of wedding planning involved and I decided to do a few things myself. Some which included; ring bearer pillow, flower baskets, invitations, sash, and my veil. My sister made the most beautiful broach bouquet, I will forever treasure it. I’ll share some pictures with you. The wedding was perfect just like I had envisioned it, so romantic so beautiful.

A month later…we found out we were pregnant!!! We were filled with joy to know that soon we would have our first baby. All I could think about was my baby and I just wanted…
