There are only a few choices in Butterick Catalog...none in other catalogs

Any suggestions on what I guess will to be used ones on eBay or possibly through PR?

Just sad there are so few choices available

have you tried looking at other patterns Burda and the like.

There are a tonne of patterns that pregnant women can wear that may not be labelled as maternity but are just as comfortable and accommodating.

Are you interested in separates or dresses. There are patterns that women can wear when pregnant and also good if you want to nurse.

I am sure other sewists will give you specific pattern recommendations - there is hope.

Megan Nielsen has a lot of maternity patterns. But as Vintagelover pointed out there are lots of patterns that can be maternity or modified into a maternity garment. Like this modification.

Don't overlook LouLou James on Craftsy. I loved one of her designs so much that even though I am waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay past being of child-bearing age, I bought the pattern for myself. My only concern is that with my aging body, it will fit perfectly, without alterations.

And look at this adorable dress, made with a non-maternity pattern. The reviewer even tells you how she did it. Simp 2580

If you've had any desire to try StyleArc patterns, they offer a few maternity choices here.

If you enter "maternity" into the various Big 4 website search boxes, more options will come up even though you might not see a separate category for them on the left.
Doing this turned up the following:
Simplicity, 5 patterns
Kwik Sew, 6 patterns
Burda, 6 patterns
Hope this helps.

Try the Jalie patterns, some of her's are good for maternity, as well as being multi-size.
When we were in Montreal the designer's daughter was wearing one of the designs for us, as a maternity top.

Style Arc has a small collection of maternity wear, and recently the shipping rates for smaller orders have dropped quite significantly to the US from Australia.

The wrap dress from Butterick is a good pattern. I made it for my DDIL and reviewed it here at PR.

I will "second" the Megan Nielsen patterns. Bought mine from Amazon.com and got free shipping because I combined it with another item purchased. I made the Ruched Maternity Tee Shirt pattern. Be aware that the neckline is rather wide and low. I had to make them not-as-deep for DDIL's office job, and narrow across the shoulder, or it would have been falling off her shoulder. I also made the garments one size larger below the arms, since it was office wear. They do fit tight, as you can see on the internet. Still, great pattern and very versatile. I made it 3different ways: long, short and a top, for her. Really stretchy knits work great.

If you will "Google" that ruched tee, you can find a lot of wonderful blogs and ideas how young moms-to-be put their own spin on their dresses & tops.
