don't know about you girls, but i still want to look good now i'm pregnant - without paying a fortune! i've made some maternity clothes myself - for anyone that's interested here's what i have done: i went out and bought 2metres of black jersey fabric, a bargain at £8 in total from the market. then i got the trusty sewing machine out and made: 1 BLACK LONG SKIRT - just sewed a long tube of the fabric, with a split at the bottom, and made it long enough for me to wear double over my bump (folded over just under my boobs). that took about 1 metre of the fabric and was very comfy. 1 PAIR MATERNITY JEANS + 1 PAIR BLACK TROUSERS - i took a pair of jeans and some black trousers that i already had before pregnancy (but didn't like very much) and cut out a section at the front, from each side seam down in a curve to just under the bump/just under the zip. (i wore the trousers -open- and drew around/below my bump with tailor's chalk) then i took some of the jersey fabric, folded it double, pinned it where the cut-out bit was and sewed it on. i also added some 20 mm wide elastic at the top which i can adjust, but think they would have been ok without this too. they turned out better than i even imagined, and the fit was great (better than any maternity trousers i have bought), as the trousers were the same fit as before apart from having extra room for the bump! no baggy bums or thighs in sight! i still have some fabric left and am planning on attacking a pair of cords that have been gathering dust at the back of my wardrobe for about 2 years! so that's 1 skirt and 3 pairs of trousers for an outlay of £8 and a few old garments that i already had! not bad 'ey?! if my descriptions are confusing (very likely!) and you need any more info, PM me - i'd be happy to help!
