Altering Patterns for Maternity
Looking for help and hoping someone can offer some advice. I am pregnant with my first child and would like to make some of my maternity clothes. Does anyone know how to alter a standard pattern to make it maternity friendly? I have a ton of patterns and figured if I can save some money by altering what I have it would be great. I have experience with altering the length (33" inseam) but don't know how much to alter for maternity. Should I make it a couple of sizes larger and add to the waist and hips? Any suggestions would be great.
