First things first, I am not a seamstress. Sewing is something I occasionally do for fun and have recently been trying to learn more about so that I can be more resourceful. I decided to try and make my own maternity pants. I was pretty nervous, I had no pattern and I had never done this before. I was pleasantly surprised at how simple the whole project was! It only took about 40 minutes, though I'm sure it would be much quicker the next time. Any of you who are more skilled could knock this out in 20 minutes easy!
I had an old pair of maternity pants that were no longer wearable so instead of donating them, I decided to upcycle the panel. You can use either a Bella Band for the panel or you can cut the panel off of an old pair of maternity jeans and use that instead (which is what I did). Here goes!
Bella Band or Recycled Maternity Panel
Now, you are going to sew it together. Make sure you're using your jeans needle!
Flip them inside out and try them on.
Voila! You have made your own maternity pants!
