This post is a surprise for a couple of reasons.
1. I actually did something instead of just thinking about things I should do.
2. The maternity pants are for me! If you’re reading this, you’re among the first to know.
I received these pants from my sister during my last pregnancy, but didn’t end up wearing them very much. They fit better when I am 30 pounds heavier, but you get the idea of the shape.
So much better now!
I took this advice and laid my favorite skinny jeans on top and pinned around them, like so.
I then checked to make sure my pins were basically symmetrical and sewed away! You can tell I am a very lazy seamstress, but this is what you get when I can only work when my kids are asleep.
I started at the crotch so that it didn’t end up too bunched, then went down the inside of each leg.
And… ta-da! The whole project took less than an hour, including making my husband take pictures.
Me at almost 13 weeks, with my new, comfy, much-more-stylish pants!
