So anyway. S is finally pregnant after trying for nearly three years. October would have been the official 3 year mark. She's 18 weeks along and just found out last week that IT'S A GIRL!!! I'm so excited. There are so many adorable things to make for girls. Boys have cute things too, don't get me wrong, but the preponderance of ideas is shifted to the girls side. (BTW, there is NO question this baby is a girl, when it came time for the tech to "look at the plumbing" she obligingly rolled over, flipped her legs in the "air" to proclaim, LOOK ma, no penis!!) S's sister-in-law's sister just had a baby last December and went from a size 12 to an 8 after the birth (no fair). So she passed some new jeans on to S that she had never worn. But now she has baby belly, and needed maternity bands.
In swoops Homemade by Jill's Jeans to Maternity Skirt Refashion. Very simple, easy to follow tutorial.
Take regular ol' normal jeans, preferably wide leg, as I discovered these were originally skinny oops.
