      wow! thanks!! unfortunately I couldn’t see the link, but I believe you :-)
      I guess it’s the best to go fabric shopping in the middle of the week, midday, …that’s when you find the real bargains.

    gorgeous material, and pattern. You radiate. Can you also use this pattern if you are not pregnant and have a not so flat stomach?

      Thank you! It was very satisfying to draft my own pattern. The fabric has “Miss Sixty” written over it… I wonder if it’s an original Miss Sixty fabric… (cost me about 2.5$ per meter…)
