I was given a few maternity shirts when I became pregnant but unfortunately we were different sizes. That's okay though! Here's an easy tutorial on how to re-size a shirt to fit you.
I didn't take a 'before' picture, but this blouse was a 3/4 sleeve button-up. So I cut off the sleeves just after the seem. I also took a shirt that was my size, laid it on top of the blue shirt and cut it out. Save the scraps.
|This portion of the shirt is the bottom 4 inches I cut off. Notice the bottom hem? Over lap the bottom scrap piece lining up the bottom hem. I cut mine at 2 inches. (don't you love those toes of my little helper?)|
Cut into two equal size pieces. I just folded once and cut at the center.
Pull the under thread to create the ruffle. and sew edges together to make a circle.
Ta Da! You did it. Since I didn't take a picture of me trimming up the blue shirt here is one that I did for a t-shirt.
Since I wanted to keep the t-shirt 'maternity' I twisted the center of the shirt so that the side seems were even.
Then I laid the shirt that was my size on top and cut. I left the length since I have a pretty long torso.
Lastly I simply sewed up the sides and down the sleeves. Done.
