Nursing Shirts and Dresses

I thought I would post the patterns that I have for nursing clothing. I like these patterns because they enabled me to nurse more modestly than if I had tried with other clothing. I have seen others make that work, but for me, well.. I just wasn’t good at doing so. The patterns are not for sale. I am posting them for those who would like to have me sew something nice for you. If you are interested please email me for details.  Clothing from the following patterns can be made. Some patterns are for knit fabrics only. Sizes on the pattern vary so if you email me, please include your size. Most of these patterns run loose, and I can make them bigger than the sizes available by getting your measurements and redrawing the pattern for your size. If you would like to learn more about taking your measurements, check this out. Pattern #103 is the only one that is both nursing and maternity, but 108 can be used that way, based on the design in the s-m-l sizes.
