I am currently doing a monthly challenge on my blog to motivate me as well as a lot of my friends to sew/complete at least 1 project a month!  This months theme is 'Something for YOU!' so this is my something for ME!  

With my due date fast approaching I decided it was time to make some nursing friendly nightwear!  I had tried out Megan Nielsens Maternity Wrap Top and really like it, and honestly like all of her maternity/nursing patterns they look and fit great when not prego too!  So I decided to order her 3 nursing friendly .pdf patterns Perfect Nursing & Maternity Top, Pina Gathered Dress or Top & Nursing & Maternity Lingerie Set.  I have only made up 1 of the 3 so far, but all 3 are great for Maternity, Nursing & Regular wear, so a very versatile pattern you can get a lot of use out of.
So this week I tackled the Nursing & Maternity Lingerie Set.  There is a full review of the pattern on my blog (link in my siggy)

I am SO happy with how this turned out and I plan to make a bunch more for nursing & afterward too! Its not a super supportive sleep bra but it is comfy & gets the job done!  For photo purposes I did put a regular bra on under it but I am very happy wearing it at home without.  For maternity wear sizing I am 36w3ds along in this picture I normally wear size S/M in maternity tops & this is a size L and I still have an okay amount of extra fabric in the belly area.  Considering the very limited amount of maternity & nursing patterns available as well as the cost of buying any RTW (Ready To Wear) maternity or nursing clothing new and even used 2nd hand; this pattern, even with its few little finky issues, is totally worth the $5!
