I just made a few pairs of these. I had some fabric I had no idea pf what to do with. I didn't what to make tops so I made some legging. which to a bit if finagling to get right but. They are comfortable. And the fact I am pregnant They are hella comfortable for me. I feel better wearing a dress and leggings vs sweats to do errands. Plus Ill save some money and I won't have to buy those icky maternity pants that do not fit right any how. lol

I made 4 pairs for myself but maybe 15 pairs total. Not including the two casualties of figuring it out.

Here they are:

ooo these are fantastic!
that's a great way to spend the day, feeling pretty instead of trying to get uncomfy maternity pants to feel right.

Yeah I winged it from another pair. It took a few tries but I got it. The difference between store bought and when you make therm at home is that the material they use in tores is way stretchier. Of course I did use knit but I didn't really think it would make a difference but it did.

Wow! They look great! Can't tell they aren't from a boutique.

I was just looking for a pattern to make some of these for myself.

Will you do a tutorial?

These are SO awesome! I love them, especially the roses.
Legging here are so pricey so this would be nice to save some cash!

If you ever have time, please do a tutorial!
