"BLESSING DRESSES"  (maternity)

      
            Each child is a "Blessing" from the Creator. As the months pass your body is beautifully changing for one of God's most precious gifts, child birth.
            We supply modest maternity apparel for your size and comfort. After nine live births and toddlers at the same time, cloths that feel free and spacious are really a treat to be enjoyed.

            We even offer one combination dress which can be used for maternity and nursing both.  Also we offer Swimwear for nursing mothers, click here.

   
         The average weight gained varies individually, generally 20-45 lbs. Some will use the same size dress while others need a larger size to feel comfortable all nine months. We sew your desired length, but you may want to add 3 to 5 extra inches in length to stay modest in those last few months before delivery.  When ordering, Please be sure to give us your present EXACT measurements as requested on the measurement questionnaire together with the number of months you are pregnant.  Also tell us how much size MAXIMUM you plan on gaining still and we will take those things into consideration to give you the best garment size possible.

NURSING APPAREL

Dresses, Jumper, Cover-ups, Bras,  and Nightgown

Also we offer Swimwear for nursing mothers, click here.


   
         When our great grandmothers breast fed their babies they had the proper clothing and now we can too. I first started nursing in 1970 and it was very uncomfortable in public. Over the years I have come to know what mothers want; easy openings, simple baby cover-ups and modest looking dresses.
            Our Cape Dresses make nursing very easy. The seams under the cape have small zippers. With a cape you can use either hand under the cape to get baby started. One of the modest ways to feed a baby.
            I personally recommend a "Blessing" cover-up for you and baby. My cover-ups are always light weight large square custom made blankets. They are big enough 45" square for the new born to be wrapped in and yet large enough to nurse toddlers. I've been out shopping with a small nursing baby before and could walk down isles using this special blanket without a person ever glancing my way. Baby was very content too. The second generation even likes these blankets and uses them.

NURSING BLANKET* - "Blessing Cover-Up"  Read this:

These light weight "cover-ups" have worked with me for over twenty years.  
I personally recommend a "Blessing" cover-up for you and baby. 
My cover-ups are always light weight large square custom made blankets. 
They are big enough 45" square for newborns to be wrapped in and yet 
large enough to nurse toddlers. I've been out shopping with a small nursing baby 
before and could walk down isles using this special blanket without a person 
ever glancing my way. Baby was very content too. The second generation even 
likes these blankets and uses them. 

My daughters with nursing babies also agree that this is the BEST WAY to nurse a baby.
These special "BLESSING" cover-ups are made of poly/cotton blends. They are 
made of baby print either for boy or girl; have rounded corners and edges are
finished with bias tape. Mothers are asking where they can get this special size 
45 inches square. Newborns can be wrapped in them or there is still covering 
room for a toddler.  Make great baby gifts. Use as described above.*** .

We supply ALL fabric and materials, for a boy or girl. Price $12.00
Custom embroidered with  name and birthday add $15.00 extra, it's beautiful, you choose color.
