Owens Cross Rds,...
Every mother and mother to be will understand me: pregnant woman wants to look good! I was so desperate to find stylish clothes to wear while being pregnant, that I came up with this skirt. It is made from my husband’s high school jean shirt. All I did was cutting the top of it, sewing the band on and lining the inner side with a fabric. I saved most of the original seams (as you can see on the picture). It took just a couple of hours. I wore it a lot! I combined it with the cardigan (see my studio for it) and got a compement! :) Nobody will suspect it is made of the shirt!
I would recommend to use shirts made of a thick fabric. This way they hold the form of the balloon
