Very, very nice.  Aren't t-shirts an awesome resource?  I am 8 months pregnant and can't justify any clothing purchases at this point, but nearly all my maternity clothes have become too short and/or snug, so I guess it's time for some recons.  Thanks!  P.S.  Your stretch marks don't look bad at all!  Smiley

This is such of an awesome idea!

Being preggo twice, I have to say that we get the bum end of the deal on nice (in style without breaking the bank) maternity clothes.  Thank you so much, I'll have to keep this in mind.

This is so FABULOUS! You have no idea how jealous I am that I am no longer pregnant and can't try this. I absolutely hated maternity jeans when I was expecting and couldn't ever seem to find a pair that fit the way I wanted them to. They were always too big or too small, and I wanted my old jeans back! Not to menton that the knit part of the pants at the top would always show and looked stupid. And using a bella band over the top of the jeans or the stupid hair tie to connect the button and the button hole idea was ridiculous and never worked right.  I'm defnitely going to file this idea away in my brain until it's time to have another baby! Thanks so much for this awesome idea...

wow. awesome job!  I can't find maternity pants that fit right. They always fall down!!  Drives me nuts.  I have about 4 pair of maternity pants now that don't fit and I am NOT going to buy another pair...I'll try your idea! thanks!

I made a pair for my sister in law awhile ago but forgot to take pics. Here's a shot of her taking a pic of her belly in the morrior wearing them. Mind her incredibly WILD hair!


She has the top part folded down a bit. Thanks again for the TUT!

Ok, I'm totally hitting "this rocks".   I'm only 10 weeks and I already need to "upgrade".  Luckily I have a ton of jeans that fit the legs and hips, but not the waist and tummy!!  I did buy one pair, but they won't arrive for another month! (boo)

Is there a particular kind of tshirt that everyone used?  Some tshirts just are NOT soft.  I don't think I could bear to have non-soft tshirt material touching my belly!

  Any other fabric suggestions?

Thanks for the super awesome tutorial.  I never would have thought to give this a go on my own...
