Very nice--you adapted this pattern very well. I'm sure your SIL will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Thanks everyone! I made another version for my SIL, and took JeanM's advice, which I think worked well. Looks good from the inside, will have to see how she likes it!

You could encase it in a satin ribbon, or better yet, you could get some stretch lace on ebay(soft to the skin), and would stretch with the pregnancy.Very nice of you to sew for her..This will be a vast improvement on most maternity wear..

Thanks for the informative review; it looks great on you! I like your un-hooched version better than the way it is drafted. :)

Although it sounds like the pattern has some fairly serious drafting issues, you've sidestepped the pitfalls and ended up with a lovely top, and I like it a great deal in black. How nice that you'll be making one for your DSIL. Lovely, Lily

I'm finding out that all these low-cut shirts are so you can buy a pretty camisole to wear underneath and show it off!

It looks great with your adjustments. I think the black color makes it very versatile.

Nice top - I might have to try it! For the elastic, you might try a couple of things. For either on, widen your seam allowances on the seam where the elastic goes when you cut out the pieces. This gives you extra fabric to flip the seam allowances towards the hem, and sew to the "skirt" to form a casing (you could choose to flip them up towards the shoulders instead). Or you can sew the casing entirely with the extra seam allowance and let it float on the inside of the top.
