I was a bit self-conscious, I can see it now when I look at the photos. I guess all new moms are. But I also think that the top drapes nicely and fits well even with that extra baby weight.
I was also surprised this January while I browsed a new Linea Pura magazine. There's a pattern that looks terribly similar to this one. Did I maybe inspire someone? Now, that would be nice!
It was certainly intended for this pattern to be modified to fit everyone's needs, with stockinette part as long as desired or not even there.
If there's someone else who'd like to give it a try, the top is a part of matching tunic and scarf set and here's the link to the free pattern!
