So in my hunt for cute things to wear while pregnant I've also decided to make some things. The skirt I made this top from, was gifted to me and in the spirit of giving I want to share the tut with all of you! I thought I allready had but I don't see it in my posts so apparently not! *facepalm*

(please note these photo's where taken with my andriod phone and where not the greatest due to lighting. But I think they show the item off well enough for you to see.)
After:


Before:


I think this tut would work well with any very flared skirt. This was just slightly too small to get off my hips once I put it on(before getting preggers) so use that as a guide. Smiley

That was an amazing skirt, but I would wear it so much more as a shirt, especially one as great as that.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I totally tried to wear it as a skirt but it was just too small. I love the tie die effect. Smiley It has so much room you could belt the top of it and wear it over a baby belly like in my case, or even just wear over jeans or leggings. (it's pretty long.)
I love the way the sleeves came out. Thanks so much for your comment! I really appreciate it!
