Creating Maternity Clothes With Machine Clothing

Jun 16, 2008
Maternity clothes are very costly for the short amount of time you'll wear them. There's no need to go out and buy maternity clothing, though, when you can make your own fabulous maternity outfits. You'll only need a sewing machine and a few pieces of fabric.

Maternity clothes that you make personally are made to fit your body: your chest, your hips, and your shoulders. The pants will have exactly the right rise and the legs will skim your shoe-tops at just the right spot; shirts will button neatly over your breasts and the sleeves won't be too short, too tight, or too long.

But it is usually extremely hard to find beautiful and stylish maternity clothing patterns, especially if you are petite or plus size. So, go for regular patterns that you can modify into maternity patterns just by changing a few simple things. There are also many sewing patterns can be altered to fit during pregnancy. If you're nervous about making alterations, start with patterns designed for maternity wear.

The various websites on the Internet have a good selection of maternity patterns. You'll be able to find patterns, which you can adapt to any size, as well as sewing machine information. Also, check out the maternity patterns in the craft stores and discount stores.

When sewing maternity clothes using a clothing machine, the comfort of the pregnant woman should always be kept in mind. Pregnant women are lucky because they can make fashionable and comfortable skirts and dresses with easy sewing patterns.

The pants should be made of fabrics that are comfortable and easy to move in. A simple easy to sew jumper would also be an excellent addition to your maternity wardrobe. Loose style coats are usually in fashion and are great for the expectant moms. Capes are another great idea for moms to be and they are very easy to sew using an electric clothing machine.

Pregnant women frequently complain of feeling hot when others are comfortable, so you'll want a fabric that breathes. Cotton is a good fabric for making maternity clothing, whatever the weather is. But if you can afford it, high-quality wool is cozy in winter; consider adding a lining so that the wool won't irritate your skin.

Another way to supplement your maternity wardrobe is by making alterations with your own clothes using machine clothing. But the problem with making changes with your pre-pregnancy clothes is that when try to change them back after the pregnancy; they may never look the same anymore. With altering your own clothes, you'll just add a stretchable panel to the front of your pants or jeans, or add fabric to your tops.
