I've been playing around with adjusting some of the styles for maternity; it's something I never thought too much about before being pregnant! Several of the countries have styles that can be easily adjusted by letting out the waist--- which is very practical because you wouldn't need a whole separate wardrobe.
This outfit would be worn by a middle class woman in Taglyn. A breathable cotton gown is worn under a heavier tunic with an empire waist and open front.
I wasn't planning on drawing a new doll ( I already have A-F) but I had new inspiration. So today, I introduce you to Base "G", the newest addition to the Closet and the first doll in to model maternity fashion!
The inspiration for her comes from the fact that I am pregnant! My belly isn't quite as big as hers yet, but I'm definitely enjoying stretchy maternity pants already and bemoaning the lack of options in style out there! At least, lack of options in my budget... And the exciting news isn't done yet, I'm due in August and there will be not one, but two babies coming home from the hospital with us! Twins! I'm very excited, but I also don't know what this will mean for the blog. I have plenty of outfits drawn (as well as a few dolls you haven't been introduced to yet) so my goal will be to have them automatically post for several months (or maybe until the twins graduate highschool, we'll see when I start to have time again, lol!). I hope to continue drawing, I love it and love designing outfits. But I also know that my life will change significantly (for the better, even if it's a sleep-deprived better!) and I really hope I can keep the Closet going!
