Floral Maternity Top

I've only a few more maternity projects to show you and then I'm on to my Fall/post-maternity sewing!
I used Kwik Sew 3487 for this top. It's a pretty run of the mill design as far as maternity wear is concerned. The top has a faux wrap bodice with a attached tie belt.
I used an ITY floral print jersey from the stash that I had purchased from sometime ago.
This is my first time using a Kwik Sew pattern. I sewed a large based off of my early second trimester measurements. It turned out a bit big, especially in the bust area. I probably should have done a medium.
It was very easy to sew and the instructions were straight forward. I didn't make any adjustments or design changes.
The V-neck is a bit low. In fact I have mine safety pinned together a few inches above where it starts for modesty.
Overall, it's a very comfortable top that was easy to make. It works very well for maternity purposes and could be made up in a variety of prints and colors.
