Since most maternity clothes are hideous these days and I love a great ruched tee I decided to make some of my own!
What you need for this project
Tees, maternity or non maternity. If you are going with non-maternity, size up so you have some extra length.
And some elastic, I like a thinner elastic, since it works better with the seam of the tees
Cut the elastic to length by stretching it the length of the seam of the tee. Then pin it to the seam of the tee about 1/2″ from the armpit.
Sew the elastic to the tee, while pulling the elastic tight. I like to do a zig-zag lockstitch at both ends to ensure that it stays put, and then use a straight stitch the full length of the tee.
Repeat on both sides!
The finished product
Stay tuned for more maternity DIYs over the next few months as The Bump grows and I need new clothes!
