My Stylish Delivery Gown and Matching Pillowcase!

March 11, 2012

Well I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and I am quite excited, but at the same time tired. I was in the hospital for a couple of days, and while in there I had plenty of time to browse the internet. I saw some wonderful delivery gowns and wanted to wear one myself, because the hospital gown I received was falling apart. I definitely can’t be seen in that. Since my visit, I have been placed on complete bed rest due to early labor symptoms.

I thought, since I love to sew, why not make one for myself. I eventually found an inexpensive fabric and a hospital gown pattern and made my own creation. I really wanted a matching pillowcase, so I made one as well. The delivery gown and the matching pillowcase cost me total of $12.00. Yes, isn’t that nice!

I started on the pillowcase and delivery gown prior to being placed on bed rest, but I still had to finish up the delivery gown. So my dear sweet husband found a way to make it all work. Since, I couldn’t get out of bed, he placed my sewing machine next to the night table and I began sewing while laying on my side. LOL.

I am glad that I made my gown and pillowcase, because having to stay in the hospital and wearing their ripped hospital gown with no ribbon in the back to cover your behind, can be quite embarrasing while walking the halls of the hospital. It’s not a pleasant look at all.

Take a look at my own inexpensive stylish Delivery Gown and Matching Pillowcase, and tell me what you think. I will take a picture on the day of the delivery as well, so you can see it.  But for now, enjoy it!

    You did a great job! I thought you were reviewing it until I say you made it. I wish I could sew.

      I first thought of reviewing one but then I said, well I have to see if I can make one for myself and it worked out just great. Thanks again!

    Wow, that is super cute. I love the vibrant color. Great for the hospital where things can feel a little drab. Hope you can stave off the boredom while you are on bedrest, and I hope that baby waits as long as long as possible before he/she decides to debut. :)

      Yes, my daughter sure loved the colors of the fabric. I am actually trying to do a few things such as working on my blog, reading magazines, writing a to do list for my husband LOL and so on…we’ll see what else I can find to keep me busy while on bed rest. Thanks!

    I love it!! I wish I was crafty enough to make cute things like that. I remember being so embarrassed having people visit me in those horrible hospital gowns because they were falling apart. I hope you get relaxation in before the little one arrives!

    I think it is darling! There is nothing worse than laying there in a horrid gown- you might as well look stylish. This is a cute gift idea too!
