A lovely top. That white silk looks just gorgeous.

Your niece looks fabulous! So kind of you to make a maternity wardrobe for your niece. And what a great Christmas gift.

Very nice top! The elastic in back sounds like a much better option than the ties, and more comfortable.

Naomi is looking like one stylish mom-to-be! Of course, style and beauty runs in the family :-)!What a cool aunt you are to create a lovely maternity wardrobe and to get her started on sewing. She'll be hooked on sewing in no time. Thanks for another fun and informative review!

Annette, I can't say enough about your spirit of generosity and interest in others. Your niece is lucky to have you in her family, and of course, so are we to have you in our PR family. Thanks for the nice comments lately on my reviews...I am digging my way out of an emotional hole. Really a cute maternity wardrobe!

You can see how well loved this outfit is by looking at Naomi's beaming face! It must be heavenly to wear and she looks beautiful in it. I like your modification to the tie in the back (which would drive me insane, too!). I love that fabric for the capris. What a wonderful gift for Naomi, to give up your precious time and to make things for her that will help her feel beautiful all through her pregnancy. And it's exciting that you'll have a new sewist in your family!

Auntie Annette, what a wonderful wardrobe you made for beautiful Naomi. This white silk top is TDF and those capris are just perfect. Ask Naomi how they feel, for she loves them. All of these goodies are so nice and the thought that you would spend your rarely free weekend sewing for her, just amazes me. But that is kind of person you are. The patterns are adorable, Naomi looks perfect, and your work and review just delight me.

Beuatiful top and your Naomi is adorable - looks like you. Love the fabric choices - she is going to be one well outfitted expectant mother - and think of the sewing you can do for the baby!! You'll be very busy Now be still by beating heart - I can settle down knowing the maternity outfit was not for you!! LOL

She looks fantastic, and that must be soooo comfortable to wear. You two will be sewing up a storm of baby clothes!

Very cute! You are going to guilt me into making some things for my DIL (a few weeks further along).

Ok Annette, this is just some awesome sewing!!! What lovely maternity pieces, I agree with Christa, they are some of the cutest maternity clothese I've ever seen! I assure you I didn't have anything like this "back in the day"!! Your niece is so adorable too!! I'm positive she's really happy she has a aunt who's a seamtress and she'll be learning from the best!! Thanks for your sweet comments on my projects too!...You are just too hilarious! I have to tell you, it was really taking a risk exposing my little "bird legs" to the world in those leggings, but your comments had me rolling on the floor with laughter!

What a lovely top. Some many maternity tops are either really casual or too cutesy. This is beautiful.
Annette1 said... (9/7/11 2:19 AM) Reply
I think you're right, Christa. She's thinking about all the cute BABY CLOTHES she could make. :o) Thanks, ladies!

What a VERY lucky niece to have an amazing seamstress like you making lovely maternity clothes for her!!! I've worn maternity clothes for what seems like half my life, and NONE were as cute as the ones you have made Naomi! I like how you put elastic in a casing instead of ties; the back looks so nice that way. Also, how neat that she has a fun surprise coming! Seems a little one is what makes some people want to learn to sew. I know it's what made me want to pick it back up again (years ago, when I had just one daughter). It will be so exciting to see all the things she makes for the new baby! Very nice sewing and gifting!!!
