So I'm big, tall, and pregnant Undecided I've been surfing every maternity clothing site I can find and have come to the conclusion I'm on my own. Everyone either has plus size maternity, or tall, but not both.

So I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or tutorials for t-shirt recons that would work for maternity? I can get men's t-shirts in tall up to 5X ( I wear a 2x) so that should leave room for editing. I could just wear over sized mens shirts as they are, but I feel so frumpy.

Or I could sew something from scratch if it was really simple. I've had terrible luck sewing clothes for myself from scratch.. but if it was simple enough it would be worth a shot.

I know dresses and leggings would be an easy way to do maternity at my size (22W tall), but the last 4 months of my pregnancy will be spent working on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska so that really isn't an option. Even during the days we aren't out on the water, dresses just don't work on the dock  Undecided

There are so many talented gals on this board who sew gorgeous clothes.  Smiley I would greatly appreciate any ideas.
