Maternity Boyfriend's Jeans Alteration

Added Feb 20, 2014

by Trudy McGrath

Somewhere, Ireland






Description will follow!

I’m 5 months pregnant and my casual jeans are no longer comfortable, but I found the selection of maternity wear a bit outdated or too expensive in stores.

I altered my regular fit BF jeans into maternity jeans in about 20 minutes. Cost nothing and super comfortable around the waist.

I’m still fairly small, but i reckon these jeans will only do during my 2nd trimester, as soon as my bump starts to grow even bigger I will have to make further alterations with the all-round bump band.

I will explain how to turn regular jeans or pants into maternity fit.

      Jill, thank you so much…your message really got me at the heart :) I can’t wait to see my child…
      Would love to sew more, unfortunately however, the only fabric store around has closed down for good :S
      I’ll try my best though, really want to make some handmade baby items :)
      You are very good, your txt got me emotional :)
      I wish you all the very best and a wonderful Spring ahead! x

      Mary you are a star :) Not admitting to being a gran is the silliest thing ever, I think you should be proud and confident as I don’t know many grans who look so fabulous both inside and outside like yourself…truly!
