Upcycling? Don't mind if I do...

So, I've been wanting to try this for awhile... and thought today was a perfect time.


One pair of extremely over-loved ae jeans...




















+ One ridiculously orange, stretchy dress from Goodwill =






















One pair of maternity jeans with full belly panel! =] (Sorry for the blurry pics...I had to take them in the mirror with no flash!)
The finished product is...alright. I'm not going to apply to go sew pants for Motherhood or anything, but they are fairly comfy! The bottom hemming is what's really getting me. The back heels were all ripped and frayed so I trimmed them and now in order to hem them, they seem really short to me. Maybe these will just be good with flats or flip flops. =] And I still have some of that dress leftover! So there should be more upcycling where this came from. =] Hooray!

Thank you!! I just can't bring myself to pay what they want for maternity jeans in the stores.
