As promised, here's the small but growing bump. It is big enough that I don't fit in my normal pants, which is proving to be quite the challenge. The maternity pants I wore last time just aren't that cute. How did I not know? I was so happy with them three and a half years ago.
So I decided to make some of my non-maternity pants into maternity pants. These jeans are a pair of them. I really like the way they turned out and they are really comfortable. All you need is a pair of pants and an old tight fitting t-shirt.
First you cut off the waist band in the front and back. You'll cut a bit more in the front than the back. Next you'll zig zag stitch or serge around your new pant waist.
Pin the two together with the t-shirt over the pants. The idea is that you'll put the pants on and you'll always look like you have a white t-shirt on under whatever you've got on. I don't really love the stretchy waistbands on maternity pants because they always peek out if my shirt isn't quite long enough or if I am wearing a light colored shirt.
