I have a hard time spending money on something I will only use for a few months. Maternity clothes are the best example of this. Overpriced and you only use them a little while. So, once again, Pinterest became my friend. I typed in ‘ diy maternity’ and almost all the tutorials led to the same site. Diy maternity.com . That’s where I found this tutorial; http://diymaternity.com/pants-skirts/diy-maternity-pants-2
Find an old pair of pants that you’re willing to part with. I had a pair of jeans with a broken zipper. Put them on and mark with a piece of chalk where you think it would be comfortable for them to ride under your baby bump.
Cut along this line. Remove the zipper and sew the zipper area closed. I have a low riding belly so mine dip way down in the front. Remember to cut a little lower than where you marked because the elastic band adds 2.5 inches.
