Modest Monday

As a frequent reader of "The Modest Mom" blog, I was inspired by her new "Modest Monday" series and decided to post a picture of an outfit I've worn this week.  I'm a few days late in posting, but I'll try to keep up with this :)

I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant with baby #4, a boy!  I don't wear skirts every day, but I do love them and usually wear them several days a week.  The skirt in this picture is one I just made last week, from a pattern that can be found here.  I used a light-blue, cotton, old baby blanket of my first-born son for the maternity panel, which made me a little emotional bringing back all those memories :)  I was quite busy sewing last week, as I made two maternity skirts!  I'm wearing black leggings under the skirt for some extra warmth, and the grey boots certainly aren't the cutest and most stylish, but I've worn them so much this winter because they are so warm and comfortable!  The shirt is from Motherhood Maternity, and I was pleasantly surprised to find some shirts there that aren't low-cut :)  So there you are!  I don't feel very "cute" this pregnancy, as I started out weighing considerably more than with my last one, but I still try not to look frumpy even when I feel that way.  Some days that's easier said than done, and I pull out my comfy velour pants, though :)

  1. So Cute! I've been reading her blog too. Was the skirt easy to sew? I've done some quilting, but I've never been brave enough to try clothing. :)

  2. Thank you! It was easy to sew, and I'm not all that experienced :) If I make another one, I will probably make a few little changes, but I'm still pretty happy with how the skirts turned out.
