Refashioned maternity jeans

It’s been a while since I didn’t post a refashioning project, and the last one that I did was a “maternity jean”.

If you have already seen some of my posts you already Know that I like recycled items, slow and sustainable fashion, and refashioning it’s a way to work on my sewing skills and creativity, as you need to find the way to change an old item to a new one.

This time I wanted to create a comfy low-waist jean, because at that stage of pregnancy I don’t feel comfortable with maternity jeans,the belt bothers me and I prefer just low waist pants.

I found an extra large jean and I thought that I could resize it and adjust a low waist.

I use another pant as a pattern,just like this (sorry for the amateur pic):

Then I sew the different parts and I just add an elastic on the waist: that’s all, I have my comfy pants.

I wanted to test the “jean-culotte” model, wearing it with vintage boots. I don’t know how I feel about it as I am not used to those kind of lenghts, but,hey! why not, right?

And I am already thinking on make a skirt with those pants for this summer 🤭

I’ll keep you updated!
