Hey everyone! I recently sewed up the Blair Maternity Tee by SeeKateSew Β from IndiesewΒ as a gift for my younger sister who is expecting her first baby, and I wanted to share it with you too.Β It’s suuuper quick to sew up, and comes with a scooped neckline variation plus two other sleeve options (3/4 and long sleeve).

As I was making this top, it was really hard to see how the fit would be, but I’m really happy with it. The pattern has you pick a size according to your pre-pregnancy measurements, and it worked out great. I used a pink french terry from Style Maker Fabrics. My sister is 28 weeks in these photos, and she had just a little bit of room left in this top to grow into, so that being said I think a thinner knit with more stretch/drape might have been a better choice for this top. BUTTTT I do love the structure and added warmth the french terry gives to this top.

I sewed it up in about an hour using my serger. I’m not so sure about the length of this top, but my sister was really happy with it. I think if a knit with more stretch is used, it wouldn’t hang so loosely along the hemline.

This is a great maternity top pattern and I’ll definitely be keeping it in my files for future use! (And no, this is not an announcement!). πŸ˜‰
