this tutorial on how to make a t-shirt dress.



In order to make it perfect for a maternity dress all you have to do is add a little bit of length to the front section of the dress, but make sure that it lines up when you hem it. I also added a little bit of width to the tummy area because this tummy of mine still has a lot of room to grow in the next couple of months.

I just love wearing dresses when I am pregnant. I feel more comfortable, and confident. I feel like I look better too, which is always a huge plus as I grow to be huge. Also, it hides the fact that as my belly grows my bum does too... just sayin'. It is just better for me overall.

Oh and the price for these dresses is next to NOTHING!! Maternity dresses are dang expensive! We are talking like $40-hundreds. These cute little numbers only cost about $10 at most depending on the fabric you buy. I bought my t-shirts at Forever 21 for $3.50 each and always looked for fabric that was on sale.

So cute!!! Hopefully I'll be needing these next year! I might try one anyway like aggiebride said just because they are really cute. I guess I better learn how to sew. Haven't done any since middle school and it was just a few basic pieces!

Thanks for posting!  One of my bridesmaids is pregnant (actually two, but one won't be pregnant anymore by our wedding day!)  and I just sent her the picture.  Awesome idea and I love that its so simple :)
