As I’ve unpacked all my maternity and nursing clothes from my last pregnancy, I’ve realized I don’t really have anything for winter. Henry was born in September so all my maternity clothes are basically shorts and tees. I need to make a bunch of winter maternity clothes before the snow comes! Well, I was contacted by Organic Cotton Plus to review some fabric. They have lots of different types of fabric, but I, of course, chose knit. I can’t go against my first true love, right? I chose interlock in cornflower because I wanted to make a maternity sweatshirt. Interlock is more stable than jersey but not quite as thick as sweatshirt fleece.

I loved working this quality, organic fabric. It is so soft to the touch, and I loved the hand it had: soft with structure. I was really impressed with how easy this fabric was to work with; it did everything I wanted it to! I’m a sucker for blue, and this blue is slightly heathered.
*Disclosure: I was not paid for this review, but I was given fabric to review. All opinions are 100% mine.

I used a tunic sweatshirt that I have as a base but widened the stomach for a belly and changed the sleeves to raglan style. I wanted it to be loose, cute, and comfortable, and I feel I achieved that.

I like making maternity clothes that have nursing access, so the neckline opens on both sides with snaps. It love the look and love that it’s so easy to unsnap. I also added another snap to the sweatshirt before taking these next pictures. Three looks more finished than two.

On the topic of maternity, would you recommend wearing or buying a maternity coat? Or is that a waste of time and money? Should I just wear my regular coats unbuttoned?
