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?
