I have just under three weeks left until I deliver my precious little girl via c-section. She will be our third daughter, fourth tubal-reversal baby, and my seventh child!
I can hardly believe the baby will be here and that this is all even real some days! I wanted to share my latest project I finished, my very own hospital nursing gown, I made myself!
I was looking on Pinterest and found this great post about making your own hospital nursing gown from The Crafty Cupboard.
I was really excited to attempt to make this hospital nursing gown as I wanted something to look forward to as I never look forward to having c-sections. After all this will be my seventh c-section and also my ninth major abdominal surgery.
Disclaimer: I haven't actually sewed anything in YEARS, (except for minor clothing repairs). I haven't tackled a major sewing project like this since before I had kids about 17 years ago.
I pre-washed and dried all my fabric before beginning. I then printed out the hospital gown pattern pieces on my printer.
I followed the suggestions of a 36 inch length as I am not very tall and that turned out to be a nice length for me. I tapered my cutting to a nice A-line shape as suggested to accommodate my large tummy.
