Spoxxy 2.0: maternity top!

Spoxxy 2.0. For those who know the Spoxxy top have been waiting for 2.0 since it has been retired. I loved the Spoxxy top by Stitch upon a time and it has been on my sewing list for a long time already. I was planning on sewing a maternity top, which I could take with me on the holidays. Then I saw the testers call for the Spoxxy top and dress 2.0, which was the perfect push to indeed finish it before we went on holiday.
During testing I made two tops. The first one I show is the final version of the top (although there were only minor changes in the pattern). IT has a relaxed fit and a quick sew, I sewed each top within the hour. What I also like about the pattern is the waist band. You don't need to worry that the top moves up and shows your belly. This is sometimes a problem with maternity tops, they may move up when you are moving and you don't notice it because there is usually a band underneath (which is then showing). 
The new Spoxxy top has a new feature, it includes a dress! I didn't have time to also sew a dress, but the tester pictures look great! Other than that, like the previous version it has a maternity option and a nursing option. It is just a perfect top for regular use, but especially since it also has the maternity and nursing option.
I am 32 weeks pregnant in these tops and there is still room to grow. The nursing top has an overlay, which you can pull up to nurse. Perfect for once the baby is born!
Fabric: For the first top I used two coupons I bought at Cares' Stoffen. I bought the yellow knit during the sale at Stoffenfeest. For the second top I used a piece of fabric that she gave to me during one of our sewing days, she sewed this dress from it. I bought the blue jersey at Textielstad.
Pattern: Spoxxy top and dress 2.0 by Stitch Upon A Time
