Excuse my dummy she has no bump, top sits a lot nicer when it’s filled out!
I made this pattern and top for my friend who usually wears a uk 12 when not pregnant. it has rouched sides at the front to accomodate baby bump and sits nice and straight along the bottom hem (as a top would pre-bump) when on as it is longer at the front than the back.
This is my first pattern upload so have tried my best to make it accessable, i have traced my pattern pieces onto 5 sheets of a4 before scanning them onto my computer as I know it can be annoying when you print out a pattern and it uses up 40 sheets of paper. You will need to trace your printout to get all the pieces (i find greaseproof baking paper works great and is a very cheap alternative to tracing paper).
I used 1m of 60" wide stretch jersey but ended up with loads left over. it deffinately requires a stretch fabric or else its not going to fit for very long.
