I love the idea of flexible clothing, and a wrap is perfect for it! I saw some maternity clothing at Isabella Oliver, and they are gorgeous but ridiculously expensive! How can a knit shirt cost over 100 dollars, when it is not hand made and doesnt seem to be made from any special knit materials?! The good news is, they actually have technical drawing of their shirt, so I was able to guess how they made the shirts and knock it off. I took some guesses and made this from the bamboo knit I bought in 3 hours.
i love the top. even though it was inspired by maternity tops, i think it is very nice for when you are not pregnant as well :)
