DIY Maternity T-Shirt Tunic

Simple diy maternity top.  She uses an old shirt as a pattern.
Ever since I discovered the difference a ball point needle can make when sewing knits, I’ve been really enthusiastic about using them.  I found the red fabric used for this top in the remnant bin at JoAnn’s Fabrics.  I think it cost me about $2-$3.  Such a steal.  
I love sewing with knits for a variety of reasons, namely how comfortable they are, and the low maintenance of not needing to be hemmed or have zippers/buttons.
This project took me just over an hour.  Here’s the tutorial in pictures.

Super easy tutorial on how to make a comfortable maternity top.  Great ideas on this site.
Tips for this DIY Maternity Shirt:
Using iron on hem tape to make a sturdier hem on knits
Using iron-on hem tape around the neckline.
Quick Summary:
I basically traced an old shirt onto a piece of folded fabric, cut both pieces at once, sewed the seams and tops of sleeves, cut the neckline, hemmed the neckline and sleeves, and was done.  I didn’t even bother hemming the bottom of the shirt.
