Pattern for a nursing cover?

Postby Velvetsteph » Mon Jul 04, 2011 9:34 am

A friend of mine is quite shy and has had her first baby recently - I would love to make her a breastfeeding apron so she feels more comfortable at home and in public as at the moment because she sits facing onto the street she is covering herself in a HUGE sheet to feed which isn't exactly cool in this weather!

Can anyone suggest a pattern as I've never seen one in the flesh so not sure if it's shaped or just literally just a sheet with a loop for your neck...

It is literally a big hemmed square with a long strap and a short strap. The short strap has D rings attached so that the long one can feed through and be adjusted. It then has corset boning threaded through the top hem to make it stand out at the neck, so that you can look down it and see baby, and also it stays cooler. Hth. I'll try and find the tutorial i used.

No, i didn't think there was any need and i didn't want to add weight to it. I only used it in front of my Dad anyway :giggle:
