Nothing yet...

Well, it took me three weeks to finish Simplicity 2584. Not because the dress was difficult to make, but because I've lost my momentum lately. I call it "pregnancy brain". I have to take a nap after only a few short hours of using the brain, making progress on anything very slow.

Unfortunately the dress did not work out for me. I've come to realize that I'm not one of those women who has a cute little baby bump. I'm only 11 weeks and my tummy has already grown 4 inches. I've only gained about four pounds so I don't know where all those inches are coming from. Needless to say, maternity clothes are not going to be an option for me, but a necessity.

So instead of torturing myself, I'm putting most of my pre-pregnancy sewing plans behind me. One pattern that is still on the list is McCall's 5241.

I think this cardigan will be a great piece in my Fall wardrobe and will definitely work with my expanding belly. I hope to get it cut out by next week.

Thank you everyone for all of your sweet comments and for sticking with me during my dry patch of sewing:)



  1. Sorry the dress didn't turn out. The cardigan looks like it will look good! And enjoy the pregnancy naps!

  2. Hey, Congratulations on your pregnancy! How exciting for you. Apparently many of us drank the same water, I'm now in my 27th week and feeling pressed about how much I want to still do and how little time I still have to get it done in. I can't wait to see how you handle the maternity clothes situation.

  3. Nice cardigan choice! I have a similar pattern that I should make for the fall, too. Sorry about your dress and enjoy your little naps!
