{made it, wore it} merino circle top

Wearing: Cream merino circle top (pattern from Papercut Patterns) – made by me!, dress – World (from my sister who works there), boots – Dotti, necklace - Victoria 'n Bird.

I made this circle top yesterday and finished it off today. I used some gorgeous super-fine cream merino that I had in my stash – and actually was planning on making baby gowns singlets (sorry baby!) I love how the top drapes and it will be awesome as the weather gets cooler and especially useful to use as a discrete cover-up when breastfeeding.

Have you heard of Papercut Patterns before? It’s a NZ company (with free shipping worldwide) characterised by lovely designs and beautifully presented patterns. (I mean, as much as I love the ease of PDF patterns – these are something else!)

Delicious, right? I borrowed this pattern off my lovely friend Kate, but I am definitely going to be checking out their latest designs and making a few purchases myself (once again the ‘to do’ list increases!)

In other news the bump is 32 weeks on Friday – so I basically have about 2 months to go now! There has definitely been a bit of a recent growth spurt – I have worn this dress on a handful of Sundays this pregnancy and I think this will be the last time as is has reached maximum tightness around my girth! I LOVE this dress – it’s a loose-ish (normally) yet flattering and still tailored style, meaning it fits while pregnant despite not being made of stretch fabric. This is me wearing it while not pregnant, in case you’re interested.

This dress definitely look good on you both with the baby bump and without! I hope when my time comes that I can find some nice versatile clothes like that!

You look great. Funny think - I've been meaning to make a circle gillet (sleeveless version of this) for myself for a while now - really must get on to that....I can see this would look great with a brooch/pin or even belted up. Yay you!
