I am entering the point in my pregnancy where I definitely need maternity clothes - yay for me! However, I work in a professional environment where suits are the norm and man-oh-man is professional maternity gear HARD TO FIND! The stuff in stores and on line is pretty cheaply made - unless you want to spend >$500, which I do not. That being said, I do have the following Burda Maternity Issues: 8/2006, 8/2007, 8/2009 and 6/2010.

Does anyone know of any maternity offerings after the 6/2010 issue or have you made the jackets in any of the issues?

Thanks!

I'm actually making the jacket from 08/2008 for a friend right now, then I'm making her the maxi dress from the same issue for her holiday parties. It might be worth trying to buy that issue if you can.

And no, there haven't been any maternity specials since last June. I made the knit top/dress from 06/2010 for the same friend not long ago and it fit her perfectly right away and is easy and versatile, too.

Perhaps a bit off-topic but if you are generally after rather 'stylish' patterns for maternity clothes and not married to burda, you may want to look for Patrones magazines from about 2-3 years ago. And perhaps there was even a LaMia Boutique issue with nice maternity patters, not 100% sure on that one.

I am not a regular buyer and don't have access to my magazine archive right now so couldn't give you the issue numbers but with the help of PR sisters, it may be possible to find them.

Hah! Squirrellypoo, I've been following your progress as you've been blogging and wishing I had a friend like you!!

I left out the 8/2008 accidentally; I do have that one, too. With my first pregnancy, I made the chiffon blouse, which was really nice actually. Never reviewed since time is just too precious as a working mom, but lovely just the same. It was fairly quick and since you've been working with lighter fabrics, I bet it would be quick for you to sew up for your friend :)

Thus far from the 2008 issue, I've traced off the jacket and have a both a camelhair/cashmere wool blend coating earmarked for it AND a lightweight berry colored stretch finewale cord. I live in the Phoenix desert, so winters are mild...I figure I'd try it in the cord for overall fit and then proceed with the wool.

Please continue to blogI've really enjoyed it.

Thanks for the tip, GBK. I have two Patrones issues, one of which does have a maternity supplement including a shirt, outwear bomber-type jacket, and elastic waist pant. I've traced off the shirt, but as I've never made a Patrones pattern, I'm uncertain of fit and the block they use.

I do know that the inseam of the pant was a ridiculously short 28", so overall, I'm more inclined towards Burda, where I have experience with their fit and adjustments needed.

I don't think any Patrones Maternity patterns have been reviewed here - do you have any experience with them?

Unfortunately, I don't have experience with Patrones maternity patterns but heard good things about them and liked Patrones very much until they changed the publisher.

Re: the block they use, at least for bottoms, I can highly recommend them: a Patrones skirt fitted me right out of the magazine which has never happened to me with any other pattern company; of course it became my TNT.

Hello rosannec,

Just spotted in the preview for February's issue some pregnancy patterns. The edition will be available at German newsstands on Jan 11 so I'd expect it to be in the US shortly after.

HTH!

I just got my January issue and in the previews on the last page there is a maternity section for February.
