I found this super easy tute for making maternity jeans, I wasnt sure where to cut the pants so this tute helped me out a lot

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28377.0

I used some old jeans I had that I haven't worn in years, and bravely cut them to create these
the top is from a stretchy tank top that I have a million of, I looked at the belly bands from the store and they are made of nylon and spandex, which is was my tank was made of

I stretched the top as much as I could on me and then sewed a new seam to make is smaller in circumference and then cut the top strap part off

in the pix I have it folded over by half, I haven't decided how big of a panel I want so I just folded it over for now, these jeans are fairly tight on me and have no stretch so I think that helps them stay up

when I do this again I think I will find some thicker material for the top, its super comfy but I'm not sure its that great to hold things up





bad angle here but ask and you shall receive

you should keep it the way it is. you'll regret you cut it when your belly grows bigger.that way you can wear them longer. i wish i would have thought of that when i was pregnant.

Nice job!  I did something similar to a pair of my jeans except, for the top part I used a really old tube top.  It had ruching on the sides so it stretched really well around my belly.

Congrats, and those jeans look pretty good.  Yea, keep the stretchy part long.  I've never been pregnant myself (and I don't plan on it anytime soon XP)  but I think it'll be easier to work with if you're not struggling to keep them up in the later weeks.

Keep it long, it makes a lot of difference towards the end.  I made my own pair of jeans when I was pregnant, and I wish I had made the stretchy band longer.

Congrats!
