This ROCKS!! I'm newly pregnant and since I'm only 5'2" maternity pants don't fit me well.  Everything way too long.  I can't wait to find what I need to make these work!

Thanks so much for this tute! I just made a pair! I used some jeans from my closet that will probably be out of style in a year anyway and a tshirt from my drawer that had holes in the armpits.

Free! Free! Plus the excuse to buy new jeans after the baby comes in a current style!

What a cool idea!

I like your idea. I modified my clothes when I was pregnant too. The options of maternity clothes out there were minimal when I was expecting. Unless if you wanted to pay a fortune for them. I did mine differently though, I just put in a front panel that I made out of navy blue knit with some elastic. It worked out fine until my last few weeks then they would fit kind of odd but still worked. I was pretty happy with them though because I had more options to choose from rather them the maternity line. Great idea though, I like yours better. Seems to be more comfortable.

Totally wish I had seen this like a year ago!!  Way to be creative!  I hated spending $$ on clothes that were uncomfortable and ugly!  I will have to remember this!    Good Luck with the rest of your pregnancy!  Your baby is lucky it has suck a crafty mama

This is actually from a couple years ago. Wink My "baby" is almost 2.5.

I just finished making a pair of these! I'm 23 weeks along and since I'm long waisted have been able to get along with my larger pairs of jeans for now... but things are getting a bit  squishy.

A problem I had .. and for experienced sewers I'm sure you're going to think "well, duh" but it didn't occur to me....

Make sure your sewing machine is well oiled if you are having a problem with the thicker fabric and already are using a heavier duty needle and thread! I didn't realize oiling a sewing machine could make that big of a difference. In fact I had never oiled mine *blush* despite using it for several years of Halloween costumes, simple sewing projects and general repairs.

now I know better!

Maybe I'll post a picture of how mine turn out once my BF gets home and I can get him to take a few of me wearing them Smiley
