Making it Nursing Friendly (intro)

Recently, I made a post compiling maternity/bump friendly patterns (if you haven’t seen it yet, click here!) So, I of course had to make a compilation of nursing friendly patterns! Oh man, what a list this is! There are so many options to look through! I tried to make this as easy as possible with clickable links to each of the pattern listings that will open in a new window. I’ve also separated them by knit and woven fabric and included if there is a dress or top version. You will also see, next to each pattern, the type of nursing access the pattern has. Most of them have a cross front or a button placket.

Since I’m currently 18 weeks pregnant, I’m going to be focusing my main hackings for maternity wear for now (making it maternity), but as time gets closer to when the new baby comes, I can start on nursing hacks or “making it nursing friendly”! I already have a few planned to share! Super excited.

For now, here is a big ol list of nursing friendly patterns! If I missed any of your favorites, please let me know! And if you want to stay in the loop of new posts coming up, be sure to subscribe!
