Maternity Skirts- Simplicity 1359

I made these skirts in early December and have been wearing them fairly regularly with tights or with fleece-lined leggings. You make the pattern in your pre-pregnancy size and it came out perfectly fine. It is a simple pencil skirt with a belly pattern with no ruching, which I personally dislike. The waist is elastic, so you can adjust it to fit. 

I took all of these pictures with a self-timer after school one day before the light disappears at about 4pm.
 I made three from knits from Jo-Ann. I made simple black one because I was tired of how my maxi skirts would bunch up around my tights. These are all a size 8. 
So neutral...
 I am still wearing all regular tops, nothing specifically for maternity. This is an Ann Taylor Loft one that was always a little big, and all of my Target tops are super stretchy and still work.
Side view-32 weeks pregnant
 This one is a grey knit with small gold polka dots. The side picture was super blurry, but you get the idea.
 This one is my favorite- a very 90s inspired neon cheetah print knit.
 I still look mostly like old Molly from the back (and I really need a haircut!)
 I always wear my shirt over the skirt, but this is just for your amusement! I look like I'm stealing a bowling ball!
I got the pattern on sale for $1 and it also has shirts, pants and a long skirt. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to sew some simple and easy maternity clothes!! It's only four pieces and I made all three assembly-line style in just a few hours. Plus, they are stretchy knits so you will get a decent amount of wear out of them.

Only five more weeks and it's baby time!!

  1. Your skirts are great, I cannot believe that you are still wearing pre-pregnancy tops!! You do look like yourself from the back but wow! the side and front view are all baby! Can't wait to see him!

  2. Those skirts are adorable! Finding a skirt to wear while pregnant would be really difficult. The grey knit skirt is probably my favorite out of the bunch. It looks very flattering on you.
