A few weeks back, I had a lovely comment on one of my posts from a local lady, Jo, who offered me some vintage maternity patterns she’d found. How exciting is that?!?! Thank you so much, Jo!!!
Jo gave me four lovely patterns – three maternity ones, and one that could very easily be worn during maternity times. Here they are:
Australian Home Journal 8821, a cute maternity smock with two variations.
Australian Home Journal 5427, a maternity “frock” with two variations. I especially like View A, with the collar and little cuffed sleeves.
Simplicity 7088, from 1967. While not technically a maternity pattern, I think this would work really well due to all the volume in the back.
Australian Home Journal 8332, a maternity suit with a cute little Peter-Pan style collar and slim skirt.
So, I’m about to start work on making up one of these patterns. Want to guess which one? Just for the fun of it, I’ll send a little prize to the first person who correctly guesses which of these four patterns is next up on my cutting table. (Play fair though – only one guess each!)
