Pregnancy comes with so many big changes! As your body is changing and your belly growing, your old clothes simply can’t accommodate you anymore! In this joyous time in your life you really shouldn’t be worrying about finding clothes that fit you. Trying out countless pants and dresses at the store can get exhausting, so here are some really great and simple ideas for DIY maternity clothes you can make at home!
1. Maternity Jeans
Jeans are usually the number one thing you stop wearing when the belly starts popping out. Let’s be honest, most jeans aren’t particularly comfortable when we’re still our regular size, let alone when our body starts changing shape. Whats Up Moms shares a great tutorial for comfortable and stretchy maternity jeans!
2. Maternity Pencil Skirt
If you love wearing tight and elegant pencil skirts you may feel a bit sad that you have to put them aside during your pregnancy – except that you don’t! Check in with Sewing In No Mans Land to learn the hacks behind this beautiful maternity pencil skirt!
3. Maternity Ruffle Sleeve Top
Nine months may seem like a long time when you first learn that you’re pregnant, but in a few years you’ll look back on this time and realize how fast it went by! Make sure you are always dressed in the chicest clothing that photograph super well, like this maternity ruffle sleeve top we found at By Hand London!
4. Maternity Lace Top
It takes so little to make your maternity style graceful and classy! Lace always goes a long way and with a loose top like the one by A Beautiful Mess you’re going to create a great look for any day of your pregnancy. This is also the perfect outfit if you’re having a summer pregnancy!
5. Maternity Tunic
Since you’re already browsing maternity ideas at A Beautiful Mess, here’s another one! If you want to go a bit more dressy, this maternity tunic would be our top pick! In light of all the changes you’re experiencing right now, sometimes you just want to dress up in something chic!
6. Maternity Shirt
Once the baby bump starts showing, you’ll learn that wearing even the most casual stretchy shirts isn’t going to cut it anymore. Your baby is growing every day and your clothes must grow with it! We love this tutorial for a simple maternity shirt by Made Everyday!
7. Two Seam Maternity Dress
Pregnancy is a wonderful time to experiment with a variety of maternity dresses! They are very light and spacious, so they won’t make you feel as constrained (or sweaty) as pants and T-shirts normally do. Here’s a gorgeous two seam maternity dress by DIY Maternity!
8. Maternity Hospital Dress
All this talk about pregnancy clothes, but don’t think we forgot about the first moments after the pregnancy is over! After you give birth to your bundle of joy, your body will need some time to recover and you’re definitely going to want to wear something super roomy and cozy.
