Maternity Fashion- 3 easy ways to do it for FREE!

We don't all have her bankroll, (Wait I don't think ANYONE has her bankroll!), and there is nothing worse than spending good money, (well isn't it ALL good money?) on a piece of clothing that will be of NO use in a few short months! Here are some quick alterations that anyone can make, (regardless of your sewing skill level) to feel like a million, no matter how plump is your bump!

1. Easy maternity jeans:

Cut the waist off both your jeans, and sweatpants.

Toss the jean waist, replace with the sweats!

It couldn't be easier!

2. A night out
To spend the money on a fancy dress for one evening on the town when you are NOT preggers, is hard to justify if you know that dress will live the rest of its life in the closet. To do it for a maternity dress? Well that's just silly!This look can be achieved in 10 minutes for FREE!

  • Use a pretty full length skirt (Stretchy, NOT fitted ;-)
  • Pull it up over your breasts
  • Tie a ribbon around it and you're done!

3. Off to work you go!
I found this gorgeous creature on a blog called "Creature, Gorgeous" ! I love what she has done here, utilizing regular clothing items, and putting them together for the look of a PROUD mama!

OMG I am so glad I'm done doing maternity clothes LOL. I guess that's a benefit of getting old. I can't think of any other benefits though. Love the dress idea! Stumbled.
