The latest trend for mothers-to-be is a designer maternity gown to wear while in the hospital.   Granted, the gowns that the hospital provides are far from fashion statements, and most of us aren’t exactly photogenic in them (think of all the new baby pics you’ll be in!), but with all of the expenses of getting ready for a new baby who has the money to shell out for a fancy gown?  

Luckily, maternity gowns are not that difficult to make and there’s a free pattern over at the Baby Gaga forumGo to the free pattern by Baby Gaga member Evil Eve.

    i made one of these (with a different tutorial) before delivering baby #2 in january. it really was easy (although it used a ton of fabric) and looked so much better than those nasty hospital ones in his baby pictures. my mom said it added some color to my face. :)

    I made two of these from the Lazy Girl pattern. I blogged about it with lots of sewing details here:

    It was easy & very cute.

    I just finished making one of these using the Lazy Girl pattern too. So easy! I used flanellette (boo on the spelling) because I am always cold and want to use the gown after for a night/nursing gown (I plan on sewing the back together after the birth). I can’t wait to use it at the hospital!

    I really want to make one of these but every link I have found to the Lazy girl pattern is broken. Does anyone know were I can find the pattern?

    I would like to see a picture of the gown to see if it is what I am looking for. None of the sites I have checked have a picture.
