DIY Maternity Style


In just a few months I’ll be turning the big 3-0 and while I’m still busy planning my upcoming wedding, many of my friends are planning their baby nurseries.

I think it’s important to look your best and of course yourself, even while you’re carrying a little one. Here are some of our favorite sewing, fashion and DIY bloggers showing just how stylish one can be during those challenging yet rewarding nine months.

Swimwear Sew Alongs!
