Feathers Flights // Sewing Blog: Maternity Pants

Maternity Pants

Over the weekend I went to a blogger meetup/swap party. It was so much fun! When the official photographer posts the pictures, I'll show you what went down!
Anyway, I swapped some pants that I have now turned into maternity pants. The two capris here were hand-me-downs. I haven't bought any maternity clothes yet because I don't want to buy anything until I really need it. Hopefully I don't get tired of making stuff!
All I did was put the pants on and mark how low they needed to be in the front, and I cut off the excess including the waistband. Then I cut out the zipper and sewed the fly closed. Lastly, I took some extra stretchy knit fabric and sewed it on. I was surprised at how fast they came together.
I also made some shorts. I have one more pair of pants that I want to change. I think I'm going to leave them as pants in case my next pregnancy is during the winter. I think I've got enough summer bottoms to get me through.
I've also been sewing some other maternity clothes which I will be posting about this week! How was your weekend?

  2. That's awesome!! It seems so easy when you explain it, I wonder why I didn't do that with any pants while I was pregnant w/ Felix!

  3. Love it. So easy too, right?
    I made a jean skirt from a pair of my hubby's old jeans. I flipped it upside down, so the ankle part was my waist and the waist area was at my knees. That way it flares just slightly. And then I put a nice and stretchy band on the top, so it fits nicely around a 8 1/2 month pregnant belly. Such an easy project, especially when you have everything on hand!
