The project

DIY maternity is a project to create great DIY ideas, tips, tutorials & sewing patterns for making your own maternity and nursing wear.

Pregnancy is a beautiful special time that should be celebrated! Every woman deserves to feel gorgeous during this time, but unfortunately a lot of the maternity wear out there is frumpy, unflattering, expensive and often doesn’t even work for its designed purpose. You may decide you want to make your own, in which case finding good tutorials, sewing patterns and ideas is often frustrating and fruitless.

DIY maternity aims to change that. It’s not hard to alter your existing wardrobe to accommodate your baby bump, or create your own maternity wear from scratch. So if you’re looking for tips, tutorials, patterns & DIY ideas for creating your own maternity wear – then you’ve come to the right place! Welcome!
