pregnant mamas, let's share some free maternity patterns/tuts for clothes!

I love the pants idea that another mama shared the other day, and I wanted to see if we could conglomerate a little list that might help others who are on a tight budget or woke up one morning and discovered nothing fit.

I made a flutter top early in my pregnancy that I wore just yesterday and it was cute and comfy with jeans and a pair of flats. I just added some length and a little width for growth and left off the pockets.

I also found another adorable wrap top that I hope to make later this week with some fabric I was eyeing at the local fabric store.

Flutter top (can be maternity or not, depending on length)

Maternity wrap top

Lots more good stuff here, A-line skirt with yoga waist and a tut for how to alter a regular shirt pattern for a baby belly.

Maternity frock


I'll keep adding as I find them, I'm on a look out to keep my maternity clothing costs down.

I did not click on every link, so hope these are not repeats. They are more refashions than from scratch.
