You Can Do It: DIY Maternity Clothes

I’ve told you a few times that I had a tough time spending much on maternity clothes. I honestly never thought that I’d be trying for a third baby, so the thought of spending a ton on clothes that I’d wear for a short while brought out the cheap in me.

I bought a few pieces and tried to mix and match and accessorize them enough to keep them looking fresh.

What I didn’t know then is that there are a ton of sites that offer tutorials for making your own maternity clothes. With DIY projects that range from super simple to elaborate, it amazes me how many resources there are out there.

Of course you’ll still want to buy yourself some true maternity pieces to form the basis of your wardrobe, but by making a few pieces of your own, you won’t have to rotate the same pieces like I did!

I’ve gathered up my 10 favorite DIY maternity pieces to share with you…
