Vintage Maternity

November 10, 2010

Hello all! I am currently about four months pregnant and have been stocking up on vintage maternity patterns the past few months, and working hard to get some outfits finished. This is the first. The top is McCall’s 6576 from 1962 and the pants are McCall’s 6771 from 1963.

Read more about it on my blog, The Vintage Wife.

  1. It looks great! My mom, whose pregnancies were during the '50s and early 60's was wondering just the other day why girls didn't wear cute maternity smocks any more. (Most of the pregnant women around here seem to wear tight knit shirts, often with the belly hanging out, exposed. Not an attractive look!) I'll tell my mom that you are leading the vanguard back to smocks.

  2. Let me join the others in saying how nice it is to see some vintage maternity patterns put to good use! I only started sewing after having babies, which is a shame as I would have definitely rocked that look!

  3. ooooh! Love love love!!! This is really motivating me to have some babies! 😀

    I absolutely love the photo, so much fun!

  4. I really love your outfit! Someday, when I am pregnant, I am determined to make darling vintage cloths for myself too. 🙂 I especially love the top–the color is fantastic! Great job!
