I first learned how to sew when I was six years old. My mom, who HATES to sew, thought it was important I learn, so she had me take sewing lessons. For whatever reason, it stuck with me.
I picked it back up on and off again throughout the years, but I never had the urge to sew for myself until I was pregnant with Caroline, our second child. That year I asked for the Megan Nielsen maternity pack for my birthday. Y’all … it was meant to be.
I mean, I’m pretty sure Megan and I were meant to be best friends. It’s just too bad she moved her family back to Australia. Her patterns are interesting, yet easy to sew. I loooove being pregnant (I know that not everyone feels this way), but it’s still so nice to be able to make clothes that make me feel gorgeous. That’s how her patterns make me feel.
I have made the Rie top/dress no less than five times. And I have the fabric all picked out for my sixth one. Hint: it includes leopard print!
Thank you, Megan Nielsen, for being awesome. Also, can we please become best friends?
