I have already been showered with so much love as a mum-to-be and feel extraordinarily lucky to have so many friends and colleagues who have shared in my joy of becoming a mum. One thing I am conscious of is making sure I am always thankful and showing my thanks in a unique and meaningful way.
I haven't struggled with my changing body it actually been really exiting to see a physical sign of being pregnant other than throwing up! I am not really into fashion but I have enjoyed finding a few key pieces to help my current wardrobe grow with me! I've been loving frills recently which is so not like me! So when I spotted this top in M&S I couldn't resist.
I still can't quite believe it is true and we are actually going to have a baby, a real baby. Today being Mother's day has made me feel all the emotions, I am so excited that next year on this day I am going to be a mum to a 7 month old! Today has got me thinking much more about the motherhood journey I am about to embark on.
One of my goals for this year and next is to learn how to sew my own clothes. I have this dream of having a closet full of clothes I completely made myself. This may be a dream too big for reality but I can hope!
I've seen some beginner patterns and tutorials on Pinterest but even they seemed out of my reach. Until I saw the pillow case dress (for kids!) but I thought I could easily adapt it to an adult top. After a few days of thinking how to make one I thought I had enough of an idea to give it a try.
I went out, got some gorgeous fabric and gave it a go and I turned out with this...
