Maternity shorts

I've never been this pregnant during the summer before, so I was lacking shorts with a full belly panel. I had a pattern that I bought years ago, and decided to make my own shorts. I had to modify it slighly since I could only find 1.5" elastic instead 1.25", and I wanted more of a belly panel than the pattern would give. Overall, I think they turned out really nice.

Re: Maternity shorts

Great job, they look so comfy. I have been toying with the idea of making full belly panels on some of mine and tearing off these under the belly panels. I can't stand them.

Re: Maternity shorts

They are very comfy. I should have made them a while ago. Extending the pattern in the back really paid off. I forgot about the extending part when I cut the twill, so I cut another piece of the cotton knit longer to meet up with the belly panel front, on the sides, so they are nice and stretchy all around the waist.
