I’m loving all the fun colors and patterns that leggings and maternity pants come in this year! And let me say, leggings are a pregnant girl’s best friend. They are SO dang comfy! Be adventurous this Summer and buy some crazy pants or leggings….who says you can’t look trendy and fun too. Don’t let that big belly get in the way! Go for the tribal, animal, neon, floral, polka dot, rubbery, or just colored leggings look(make it a fun color). Did I mention you will be comfortable and stylin’?
And that goes for you non-prego women too of course :)
Hello ladies! I’m Lizzie over at Cotton and Curls
, and I’m SO excited to be a contributor over here at DIY Maternity! I know how frustrating it can be to clothe a prego body, even at little (feeling very big) 26 weeks, and I’m just here to help with that frustration! I hope over the next 4 months or so I will give you some ideas and inspiration to look like a HOT momma – my first pregnancy, I wore sweat pants and an over sized tee the entire time, so hopefully I can help myself too.
Sometimes I just get sick of settling for a black long maxi skirt after trying on ten dress/skirts every sunday. Nothing non-pregnant fits over my massive belly. Who knew I owned and refashioned so many dang pencil skirts. Anyway, thus this striped knit tapered dress was created…with the goal to fit my growing belly and to wear with my non-prego belly (though I may have to take it in a little).

A little while ago I found this pretty pale pink mens shirt in the thrift store – I loved the colour so much, and wanted to make something really pretty with it. I’m a huge fan of babydoll dresses and tops as maternity wear, so I thought why not try something similar with a button up? And so the Button up Babydoll top was born!
I love how it turned out and I think it’s sooooo cute! Definitely a maternity staple – so let’s make one!
