Less than 15 days to go till due date - I finally got my husband to take pictures of the shirts I altered for myself.

I started 3 shirts, but finished only 2 - with this little time left to go, I'll wait for my next pregnancy to finish the last Smiley

1. Shirred maternity top




I used the following tutorial from DIY maternity - but kept the sleeves long, chopped the cuffs off and added some elastic instead because it's winter.

2. Button up baby doll shirt





Except for adding darts in the upper part, I followed this tutorial. A tutorial from DIY maternity as well.

You did a great job on those!  Grin  That'd be a great excuse to steal some of your hubby's shirts and use them for this to  Cheesy Cheesy

Thank you! I just bought the shirts second hand. My husband did not want to part with his. Expecially the button up is quite easy to make.
One thing I learned though is to check whether the shirts are button up or have a zipper. I only realized at home that one shirt had a zipper instead of buttons. Never saw a shirt like that before, not ideal for reconstruction...

The second is my favorite! Good thinking in adding the darts.

I didn't take pictures of any of the maternity clothes I made this summer Sad #2 was a couple of weeks early and I just didn't get around to it until it was to late. I might tie a pillow to my dress form to take some pictures now.
