Convert any tshirt or long tank into a stylish nursing top or cocktail dress!

This is a DIGITAL product. No physical product will be posted.

Learn how to make Wyld Chic Boutique's signature Peasant Style Nursing Top with a step-by-step PDF tutorial with over 30 pages of photos and directions. You can finish this top in one afternoon. Make as many tops as you like in different fabrics and colour combinations and be the most stylish breastfeeding mama in town!

This tutorial was originally intended to create a top, but I've shown the steps using a long tshirt dress to demonstrate the versatility of this pattern. Includes 2 Bonus Chapters on making a Couture Embellishment and a Skirt Lengthening Ruffle!

*Please note that this is not a sewing pattern with pieces to cut out or trace. It is a tutorial in a PDF book that teaches you how to convert any top into a nursing top without a pattern. No need to determine sizing nor fit-you can use any old tshirt in your wardrobe!
