Description

The top was made from the same purple fabric I used for the off shoulder dress. It was suppose to be a dress but the back didnt turn out as classy as I thought it would be, so I changed it to a top instead.

Did some gathering on the side to allow room for my growing tummy, Front is pretty normal looking, almost like a tank top, The back has a cute what I call, “wing cutout”, it was suppose to be a lot classier, but now its just sporty, but I do like it!

    I know it’s been a long time since you made this shirt, but I too would like to ask for help.. Was the front gatherde piece a curved piece or you just cut it straight but longer. I hope I put it correctly and you understand what I mean… Thank you!

      Its a bit curved — since from side to side, you need room to expand!

    super cute..in black im sure it would look classier. I’m pregnant too..only 10weeks though and thinking of ideas now. for the ruching on the sides did you just gather them or use elastic?
