Right before school started I went out and bought some pants. Why? Because my belly doesn’t fit my previous pants anymore and somehow I didn’t feel up to sewing pants while being pregnant.
I came home with regular non-maternity pants because somehow I look aweful in maternity RTW pants and these were all quite low cut. They fitted like a dream and I felt that I could just keep on wearing them.
Well, guess I had it wrong! 2,5 weeks later and they don’t quite fit anymore. The bump has suddenly gotten a lot bigger and the pants aren’t comfy when buttoned up anymore.
So here is my dilemma: Do I turn these into maternity pants or do I make maternity pants?
1. I really like these pants and I would feel bad for cutting them up and not being able to wear them again next winter (unless I’m pregnant again)
2. I really like these pants and I would feel bad if I wasn’t able to wear them anymore this winter plus I would have to sew completely new pants, because maternity RTW still looks horrible on me.
What should I do?
PS Before you say: Just don’t wear pants: I know I could do that and I even prefer skirts and dresses but I bike to school so sometimes you just want pants.
PPS If my students could read this they would kick me because I teach them that the proper word is ‘trousers’ and I don’t even use it myself 😉
