First let me thank everyone for their kind words and wishes during my pregnancy and for celebrating with me upon the birth of my son. It meant a lot to me to read those comments during the past several weeks.
Bless you all! 🙂
Busy with baby, now I keep looking longingly at my machine but I haven’t much time to sew. However I do have one tiny clothing project, a refashioning project actually.
This is my first post-partum sewing project. A no-sew project really.
I was looking for something soft and comfortable to wear under my nightgown as early nursing can be a sensitive business. I grabbed some men’s tee’s from the store, the type while growing up we used to call wifebeaters, not a pretty name but we did not think anything of it at the time, pre-PC and all. The manufacturers obviously object to that name and call them A-tees I think. The draw for me was that they fit close to the body and were very cheap.
I have kept the bottom cut-off portion to use as ribbing in future knit projects. Otherwise the shirts are disposable and I will warn you as you continue nursing, your breast size will increase, and you will have to keep cutting a new shirt allowing for more space at the top. Also, any leaking goes right through and you may find yourself changing up a few times a night. Not a long term solution, but it got me through the early days when I was most tender.
