I altered McCall’s pattern M5640 into a maternity hospital gown. I added snaps down the center of the back. I also added them to the sleeves to open up the top. It took me longer than expected, but I think the gown turned out alright in the end. The contrast is more maroon, not red. Looks better in person!
Yes, I’m huge! But I’m 39 weeks in the picture. Just waiting for the baby to arrive! :)
