Maternity Tank and Pencil Skirt

This will be a quickie post as I've already reviewed both of these patterns before here.
I used the same ruched t-shirt pattern from Megan Neilsen. I left the sleeves off for a tank style this time. Also, I graded up to the next largest size for a little more room. I used a black rayon jersey from unknown origin that had been hanging around my stash for awhile.
For the skirt, I added about 4 inches to the length to make a longer pencil skirt version. I used a gray double knit from Looks like this specific fabric is no longer available.
These photos were taken at 23 weeks pregnant. More than half way there... yay! I only plan on making half a dozen more maternity garments before I start planning on my Fall/Winter, post-pregnancy sewing. I'm looking forward to the change of pace!


  1. You look very neat and breezy for someone half way pregnant. I like how maternity clothes have changed since I was pregnant a long..time..ago..

  2. You look phenomenal! Great outfit. A nice use of two patterns that you've already made.
