"Easy to follow maternity instructions. I purchased this in part because it included a maternity option. My cousin is expecting her first and asked me to make her some maternity clothes, but many of the patterns I had didn’t have a maternity option and, since I’d never made maternity clothing before, I didn’t want to attempt hacking a pattern on my own. This pattern was perfect and the instructions were blessedly easy to follow. Yay! Thanks, PAB!" - Gaby

We have a few Add-On packs that you can get to upgrade other patterns to include maternity. They include patterns for another dress /shirt - the Milan and options for women's underwear and a swimsuit.

The Milan will add a touch of elegance to your wardrobe. It includes options for a high-low hem, a dress and 4 sleeve lengths. The Milan Maternity Add-On includes a gathered front panel to accomodate the growing baby.

"Quick and Easy. I made the Milan Drape as tops for my daughter and daughter-in-law. I made each top from the measurements in the pattern. One was in XXXL and I altered the hem to straight across. The other was in XS and I kept the "swoopy" hemline. Both recipients were very thrilled with the fit and style and I have requests for more. Definitely a success!" - Pat

"Wonderful. I used this to make an Uptown Maternity Cami and the whole process was very easy. I am making a few more maternity/nursing camis and lots of simply nursing ones in all colors and patterned fabric I can get my hands on. Thank you for an awesomely priced and easy to follow pattern." - Sew

The Bahama Mama Colorblock Tankini is one of our women's swim top patterns. The Maternity Add-on includes a gathered front panel to accomodate you during pregnancy.

"So glad I didn't have to buy a RTW suit. I hate shopping for swimsuits. Hate it. When I was pregnant, I doubly didn't want to shop for a swimsuit. Luckily I had made up the non-maternity version so I purchased the add on pack and happy day! A swimsuit I could live with!... The shelf bra held the bra in place and I finally had great support in a swimsuit! I will only ever wear PAB swimsuits from now on!" - Sarah
