Hello readers! My name is Chie, and I have a blog related to my sewing projects, named “Vivat Veritas”. I am now 34 weeks pregnant and expecting a baby girl in mid April. I’m thrilled to be guest posting here at DIY Maternity!
I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a reversible paper bag skirt. I really love this piece because of how versatile it is. It can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. The skirt is quite comfortable since the waist is elastic. This skirt is great for beginning level sewers because you only need to sew straight lines!
I love this little peasant top, and it’s just so quick and easy to make! It’s a super flattering style for your baby bump, and since it buttons up you can still use it as a nursing top too after baby arrives. Lets make one!

One of the first clothing issues you’ll notice early on in your pregnancy are your pants. You can obviously buy maternity pants, or make your own – but there is a downside to that- you’ll probably need to buy/make a number of maternity pants to get you through your pregnancy.
Another option is a belly band ( like the very popular Bella Band). It’s basically a seamless tube of jersey fabric that you can use with your unbuttoned pants to keep them up and offer coverage to your lower abdomen.
Once again though, they can be expensive – but it’s not too hard to make something very similar yourself, that will do the same job – and you won’t even need to know how to sew!
