Great idea to un-maternity this pattern. Looks nice on you.

I did the same thing (almost) to this pattern also. Never thought of using the bottom of the t-shirt tho, great idea. Mine came out O.K., but not perfect. Thanks to you, I now know what to do. Yours looks great by the way.

Great looking tee. Thanks for all the tips to convert the pattern to a non-maternity one.

I am planning on doing unmaternity-ing this pattern very soon, too! Thanks for sharing how you did it; yours turned out great

I had the very same idea on un-preggers this top but didn't quite figure out how. Thanks for showing me the way. This is on my summer to-do list. Your top came out great. I'll probably need a FBA too.

Laura, could you edit your review moving it from Ottobre Design to Ottobre Women. It would making searching much easier. Most of the Ottobre Design patterns are for children.

I've just ordered this magazine. Can't wait to try this. Thanks for the info on how to take it back to a "normal" tee

Thank you for this review. It was especially helpful in reminding me to think of the patterns in OW as interchangeable. Honestly, it should have occurred to me that you could mix and mingle sleeves and bottoms. I do love your version of this top. Very flattering.
