One of the hardest things about pregnancy for me is the weight gain. I don’t really enjoy gaining 30 to 40 pounds. I don’t love the way that I look. I also don’t feel very cute, so I decided that I needed to make myself something cute and attempt to be a little more stylish so I could feel a little bit better about myself. Skirts are so easy to make and so comfy to wear, so that is what I made.
This is how I made it:
I cut out two pieces of fabric. I measured my waist and then added a couple of inches because I wanted it to be an a-line skirt. I cut a rectangle and then cut the sides at an angle to make it a-line.
I sewed the sides together and flipped it right side out.
I cut strips that were 3” wide and ruffled them up by using my longest straight stitch and pulling the bobbin thread through to gather the fabric.
I pinned the ruffle onto the bottom, all along the bottom. Then I sewed it on.
Next I took several 1” thick strips and ruffled them up.
I pinned the ruffles into the skirt in a fun design. I only did the front, because I got lazy by the end…. I used lots of pins and then sewed the ruffles onto it.
Then I added some elastic for the top.
And that’s it. It was super easy and it was super comfy, which means a lot when you’re pregnant.
And here is the whole outfit that I wear to church. Even though I feel huge, for a moment I felt a little stylish too .
