I whipped up this swanky lil upcycled maternity singlet a while back and, although I don’t usually do sewing tutorials Patchwork Cactus, (because I only share craft tutorials that anyone can do and not everyone knows how to sew) this was so easy I just had to share.
I’m not big on maternity clothing, there is too much stretch material involved and as soon as you finish with the pregnant thing you cant wear them anymore. This is a nice comfortable flowing top that will serve you well after your pregnancy.
You will need:
- One long t-shirt or singlet.
- Some scrap material.
- A sewing machine or a needle and thread.
- Cut your singlet top straight up the middle leaving only the neckline still intact.
- Measure the length of the cut.
- Cut out a triangle that is 4cm taller then the length of this cut. For example: If the cut is 50cm – then your triangle’s two equal sides should measure 54cm.
- Fold the point of the triangle over a tiny bit then pin it to the singlet starting at the top. The bottom of the fabric should hang down under the singlet.
- Sew both sides of the triangle, starting at the top, to the singlet.
- Fold the bottom of the material under so it is flush with the bottom seam of the singlet and sew.
Another reason I never do sewing tutorials is because I’m a bit crap at explaining myself, hope you understood.
