I created this pattern as I am currently pregnant and needed some clothes to accommodate my growing belly. I am now 8 months pregnant and can still fit this skirt so it has been great during my pregnancy.
The front waistband has elastic in it to help support the belly, but I chose not to use this as I had none at home and it worked well. Instead I made sure I used a good quality knit fabric that had good stretch and recovery.
The pattern and instructions for construction are included but if you have any issues feel free to contact me.
I would love to see photos of your finished skirt - feel free to email photos to me.

However, my focus now is on my children. I am lucky enough to have 3 amazing kids, and they are my 'job' right now. As such you will not see any new patterns from me.
