I like your new print; it looks great with the denim/blues.

Thank you Tanya, for your tip. And I chose this pattern because it was the least "tent-like" among my patterns =). This is the first time I did a maternity top from a pattern. I think I will compare this pattern to my regular t-shirt pattern and make adjustments from there.

Nice top. I like the blue binding you used. Regarding the back, a lot of the big 4 widen the back pieces considerably in maternity tops while Ottobre, etc., don't. I personally find the ones with regular backs fit much much better as really most of the extra space needed is in the front, not the back. That could be some of the problem also depending on how it is drafted.

Nice job! I agree that you probably need to narrow the back. But, hey! It's a good starting point!
