This is my tired face because it’s 8am and I’m slowly getting over a cold.
Both of these shirts use the same square-sewing technique as the spotty top I made for Sew Weekly. I realized it accommodated the growing preggy belly so I whipped these up since I’m running out of wearable clothes.
This version is a few inches wider than the first. And looking through the quick photos I took it’s funny how it makes the belly look huge.
I wore it with the belt for a hot minute before it started bothering my ribs. I need stretchier belts if I’m going to rock this look. I’m happy to have more work options at any rate.
Additionally, I expanded the waistband of the trousers I’m wearing with the second top using this technique from Say Yes.
It was a little fiddly getting the waistband separated and I had to tear through the interfacing – which was fine, I just hadn’t thought about it being an issue before I started deconstructing. You can see some of the left over interfacing glue on the left. These trousers are so old I had no qualms about trying this if it didn’t go well. Which it did, and expands my winter work wardrobe.
