Pattern: Megan Nielsen’s Ruched Maternity Skirt (see my first version here)
Materials Used: Black Ponte Knit from Mood fabrics

Sizing: Like last time I made a M instead of my normal S because my knit is not super stretchy.  I am really glad that I did as it is a tight fitting skirt for sure.

Changes Made: Just the sizing above.  Otherwise no changes made.
Conclusion:  Love this pattern so much.  I really like that I can either tuck in my top to show off my maternity curves, or untuck and pull down my top over my belly if I am feeling a bit self-conscious.  Either way it’s a very comfy and flattering maternity skirt.
