I put on a pair of pants one size larger than my pre-pregnancy size and while I was wearing them I stood in front of the mirror and drew a line under my belly--yes I wrote on my pants with an ink pen, I didn't have a fancy disappearing ink pen like a real seamstress. You can see the pen marks in the photo above.
Then I measured my favorite pair of maternity jeans from the top inseam point (i.e. the crotch) to the top of the waist band. You will use this measurement to see how large to make the panel. What, huh? Just keep looking at the photos, it
will might all make sense.
Cut out the zipper as close to the zipper as possible.
Sew the fly closed.
I did it--I made maternity pants out of pants.
I am linking to Works For Me Wednesday, even though I wasn't completely sure when I started this project that it would work!
