In searching for ways to save money on sewing, an easy way is to save on patterns. You can make your own patterns or use the patterns you already have and make it work for you. Today I want to show you an easy way to turn just about any shorts, pants, or skirt pattern into one you can use while pregnant. I fell in love with the look of these culottes and wanted to find a way to make them work for my maternity wardrobe. I hope this tutorial provides you the steps you need to turn most any non-maternity pattern into a great pattern you can use while pregnant!
