Description

This is a creation that I really really love. I made a pair of quarter pants in natural linen. It is really comfortable. When you are preggers, it is easy to feel really warm. Sometimes I feel hot even in dresses, and my inner thigh would get all sweaty. I was going to try and buy a pair, but I havent been in the mood for cloth shopping for a while. So I decided to make one.

I used Burdastyle’s Corinne yoga pants pattern again. I widened the legs, and lowered the front, and used an elastic waist band. Pretty much the same deal as my shorts. The pattern was made for knits, but I measured my butt (increased 4 inches since the pregnancy!) and used the measured size, and the fit turned out just fine. (The linen is slightly stretchy).

Of course, the little details makes the pants cuter. I added external pockets, wide hem, and little buttons (recycled from a friend’s torn shorts).

    Very cute maternity pants, the cut looks perfect under the belly. I was pregnant throughout late summer with my first child and only wore super elasticized skirts, but these are perfect for such a cute baby bump.
