1950s Maternity turned to Everyday for Everyone

May 10, 2011

The idea for this outfit came from 1950s maternity clothing. I LOVED the geometric shaping of the narrow pant or skirt and the A line blouse or jacket over the top. If you are pregnant, then great! You need the room and space anyway, but for those of us not having babies, the question is: how to pull off a shape like that without looking like they really ARE pregnant? I’m pretty pleased with my solution! What do you guys think? Would you wear something like this? Learn more about the fabrics and pattern on my blog.

  1. geometric shaping for clothing a nice idea. I am putting weight theses days, so its a good suggestion to use this sort of outfit stuff.

  2. I love it! The sheer fabric shows your waistline and has the wider shape of the maternity top. This contrast works well.I often see maternity tops and dresses that I would like to ware and this is a good solution! Very creative.

  3. I think this works really well! I love the sheer overlay … it lets you reveal your non-maternity shape while still enjoying the design!
