I bought a pair of maternity jeans from Motherhood here in Orem but they were way to flare legged. I really wanted a pair of maternity skinny jeans and I haven’t found the time to go get some at the Forever21 or H&M in Salt Lake so I just decided to DIY the jeans I never wear anyway. 🙂
So I found a pair of my favorite pre-pregnancy American Eagle skinnies ( They aren’t like SUPER skinny so I know my future swollen legs will still fit into them) and laid them on top of the Motherhood jeans. I made sure the seems on the outside of the leg matched up all the way down. Then I straightened out the legs so they were all laying flat.
Once this was done I cut up the leg to about the middle-knee area ON THE INSIDE!!!!!
I turned them inside out
and sewed with a straight stitch. (My machine already had black thread in it but I could have used blue. The jeans are dark enough that black doesn’t show up.)
And here they are. 🙂 They are looking great with boots and without.
