Maternity Gown, Take 2!

First of all -- thank you so much for all of your prayers!
The little mister is home! :) 
but please keep praying ... 
because we have lots of appointments & follow ups!

One of the most "viewed" posts on the blog is the Maternity Gown I made
before Monkey Man was born. 

Here was the first one I made:
(it was actually one of my very FIRST sewing projects.EVER)

I used the free pattern online and I just checked, you can still find it here.

When I found out I was pregnant with #2-
I had to make another one for baby H's arrival. :)

This time I decided to go with this fun brown/cream fabric!
I thought the baby blue looked a little too much like a normal gown.

My first one opened in the back, traditional style.
But since I don't typically put on my DIY gowns until the second morning,
(you know ... after you've showered and feel a little less gross)
I didn't make the back open on this one!
I did, however, add velcro to the sleeves for easy nursing! :)

So I guess it's more like a "nursing nightgown", 
than your traditional hospital gown.
Either way - I'm so glad I made it! 
So go on -- don't be afraid -- make your own! :)
It's so fun to feel "pretty" after a rough delivery!
