Pregnancy pants tutorial

I love saving money for the things that are really important, spending a weekend taking the kids to the movies or date night with the hubby. And when it comes to buying clothes I just cant justify getting a new pair of pants that will only fit me for a couple of months. That's why I decided to figure out a way to be able to keep using the jeans I had during my pregnancy.

Me encanta ahorrar dinero para las cosas que son realmente importantes, como ir de fin de semana con los niños a las peliculas o talvez una cita con el maridito. Y cuando se trata de comprar ropa no puedo justificar el tener que comprar pantalones nuevos que solo podre usar unos cuantos meses. Por eso decidi que tenia que buscar una manera de alterar mis pantalones para poder seguir usandolos durante el embarazo.




I didn't want to cut my pants either because I want to be able to use them after the pregnancy, besides it is a good motivation to not gain too much weight. I took my pants, an old shirt, elastic, sewing machine and got busy.

No quise cortar mis pantalones tampoco por que quiero poder usarlos después del embarazo, ademas es una buena motivación para no subir mucho de peso. Tome los pantalones, una blusa, elástico, maquina de coser y me puse a coser.

I found this non-roll elastic at the store, it was perfect width for the waist and I was able to get a couple of pants out of it.

Encontré este elástico que no se enrolla en la tienda, tiene la anchura perfecta y pude sacar varios pantalones con este.

I started by hiding the zipper in the pants, folding it in and sewing so it wouldn't hurt me while I was wearing them. I turned the shirt wrong side out and placed it on on top of the pants, pinned them and sew all around to create the cover for my belly.
Measure your waist with the elastic making sure it is comfortable enough to wear and cut it and place it on the top of the shirt.

Empece escondiendo el zipper de los pantalones, doblalo y cóselo de tal manera que no lastime a la hora de usarlo. Voltee la blusa al reves y la coloque en la parte superior de los pantalones, con alfileres lo asegure para poder coserlos alrededor y crear la cobertura para la pancita.
Mide la cintura con el elastico de tal manera que sea comodo para usarse, corta la pieza y colocalo en la parte de arriba de la blusa.
