So lately Will and I have been in total nesting mode. And not just getting the nursery ready but total mayhem nesting. Cleaning out closets, selling shit we don’t need any more, and like lunatics, deciding to scrape off the popcorn ceilings throughout the entire house. And I have had a few nights were I didn’t know what room I was going to be sleeping in because the house seemed to be either an episode of Hoarders or an episode of Flip This House. So alas my poor sewing machine sat useless for a few weeks. And not to mention my lack of creativity. I didn’t have any good ideas going on. Or I would start a project and then decided I was getting in over my head and pack it all up.
But then along came Kate. I love when I get the opportunity to work with fabric designers or to be a pattern tester because I am a girl who needs a deadline. Kate from See Kate Sew recently created a new pattern called the Blair Maternity Top (release date coming soon) inspired by her own baby bump. And I was eager to give this a try. I sewed up a size Large and used a crepe knit that I bought in the LA fashion district on my last vacation (so I have no idea who makes it). It is a thicker knit but still has a slight stretch to it. Paired with my black leggings (which is all I wear now, tomorrow, and probably forever) and a pair of tall boots.
This is a quick sneak peek of the nursery too, showing off our ships wood wallpaper (Lowes.com) and photo ledges (Ikea). Can’t wait to take more photos of the nursery once its all done!
