After all that procrastinating, it took me about 45 minutes to turn both pairs into comfortable maternity pants. Honestly. I took some heavy duty, medium stretch white knit fabric from my stash and tried 2 methods of attaching. For the brown pair, I cut a U in the front and filled it in with a U of fabric and on the black pair, I removed the waistband and replaced with a knit waistband. Both styles are very comfortable, but I think that I cut the U on the brown pair too low. I was being lazy and cut under the zipper instead of removing it first and cutting across it. Oh well, I'll just wear long shirts with that pair. I can also dye the white knit with some Rit dye if it's too noticeable.

Wearing the brown pair at 28 weeks. I look a little tired. I wonder why?
