Good morning everyone!
About 6 months late, but I am finally writing about my second Erin Maternity Skirt. It is quite unfair that it’s taken me so long to write about this skirt because it has been the best maternity outfit I’ve had, one of those rare (at least in my case) when pattern, fabric and function just come together like a dream.
There are several reasons why this skirt was my staple garment during my pregnancy. Since I don’t want to forget about any of its wonders, I am going to make a list:
- It is a super quick, super easy make. Thank you Megan Nielsen for such great pattern.
- I used silky jersey, which has an amazing stretch and recovery, adapting to my growing figure to the very end and keeping its shape at the same time.
- This jersey sews, washes and dries like a dream, qualities that are great when you don’t have many outfits.
- This material is super breathable, so not heat rushes apart from the 40 degrees outside..
- Cool, funky pattern. I just don’t do florals and takes me ages to find fabrics with other prints. It is actually kind of mad… it’s got nail varnish pots dripping!
- It is perfect for windy weather, it doesn’t fly away and stays where it should. This may seem like a weird reason, but where I live it’s very windy so it is definitely a plus for me.
- It made me feel like a cool, young mum. One of my maternity fears was to look like I didn’t take care of myself, wearing an outfit “just because I can still fit in this”. This skirt definitely made me feel great in it every single day I wore it, and therefore made me happy 🙂
I definitely recommend this skirt to anyone that is pregnant or that has a friend that is (what a wonderful present this makes!) and I will be making more should I be pregnant again. In fact, I’d like to make a non-maternity version of it for next summer.
Anyway, until here my Erin skirt love. I never thought I would say this but, I miss my maternity wardrobe!
Have a lovely day everybody!
