Historic Pregnancy Wear

As my urge to sew slowly seep back into my body, I find myself looking at another type of fashions then before – namely maternety dresses through history.

Even though I probably never will get the time to sew, and even les to wear them – here are some of the beauties I´ve found.

I would love to wear something simular to the medieval fair late may – if i have the strenght to go.
