Re-intro from a an "old" member

Gosh, there are so many new people around here, I barely recognize this place! I'm planning on starting up sewing again after a nearly two year hiatus. I sewed maternity clothes like crazy when I was pregnant with the Timster, then I've done nothing but alterations and repairs since then. Just found out I'm pregnant with #2 (SURPRISE!), and since I'll be pregnant during a totally different season (due in March 09), I'll need a whole new wardrobe of maternity tops.

I really like the newest Jalies; along with my old TNT altered-for-maternity patterns (I don't use maternity patterns, just alter regular ones), I think I'm good to go. Now I just need to resist the urge to buy more fabric! Ann's opened up shop since I gave up sewing, so that's just way too tempting ...

Oh, and I'm a birth doula now!

Welcome back Jackie.
Congratulations, & look forward to seeing more gorgeous reviews. I've directed lots of people to your maternity reviews for alterations. (Did you know there's a mini wardrobe contest in August - that would be good for maternity...)

congratulations on your pregnancy, and congratulations on your doula-ness! ^_^

Always nice to see folks again! Looks like you have some more maternity sewing in front of you.

With a great wardrobe that's still in the flat-fabric stage.
