When you don't want to spend much on overpriced maternity clothes you need to get creative and either buy a few patterns and make yourself some new outfits or transform some of your old clothes so they can fit your bump. I've just entered the third trimeter and let me tell you that I managed to go this far into my pregnancy buying just one maternity item: a pair of jeans.
When Dan gave me two of his old pants to add to my refashion stack I had no idea if I would ever use them but I took them anyway. Are there many options in recycling men's pants? I'd made a bag once but it was time now to try something new.
The pants are of different hues but that doesn't bother me at all: I used one pair for the front of the dress and the other for the back. Actually, it looks kind of funky this way.
