Great top!

Really nice morph! I am way tired of maternity sewing... but that doesn't prevent me from needing a couple of new tops for the recently warmed up weather. Since these are two of my favorite tops, I think I will copy you!

Nice job! Both tops are lovely and flattering. I wish I'd known about Jalie when I was pregnant.

Great review. Your top looks so great, and I agree with you that the bottom piece will 'fill out' as your pregnancy progresses.
