Big news guys! We’re expecting baby #3 this September. Yep, that’s 3 kids in a little under 4 years. I know, what am I thinking?! But seriously, we’re beyond excited!!
Since my “skinny” jeans are getting tighter , I thought I’d share with you my favorite ways to turn your favorite jeans or trousers into maternity pants with these fun DIY maternity pants tutorials.A friend recently showed me how to do the most basic sewing, so the sky’s the limit…sort of 😉

So far I’ve only completed one of these jeans transformations, (the one above) but I’ve got another pair of rose-colored cords waiting on the sidelines, waistband already removed and ready to be remade into maternity pants using the detailed tutorial below.

This next maternity pants tutorial from Say Yes is pretty much genius because you transform your favorite jeans into maternity jeans and then afterward have the potential to return them to normal jeans again by removing the extra elastic and stitching them right up. Isn’t that clever?

**Bonus… it’s also nice to save cash and sew your own belly band so that your regular jeans can be wora few extra months. I also love my DIY belly band from this tutorial at A Beautiful Mess because it allows me to wear non-maternity tops even when my tummy grows without worrying about any skin showing.
