A few months ago at MOPS (the mom's program I go to) I took a few pairs of maternity jeans from the "freebie" table. I have never bought maternity pants before, because even the small sizes never fit right, they're baggy in some places, and not in others! This pair was the same way, but I loved the dark denim, the fact that they're kindof stretchy, and that the top/waistband area didn't necessarily look like maternity jeans, they just go up really high on your belly and have elastic in the back of the waist. Anyways, my goal was to make them fit! I had been putting it off for a while, but one day last week, Grosgrain posted a video blog where she tailored a pair of huge jeans from the thrift store to fit her. Watching that got me motivated! There are a couple ways you could do this. You can put your jeans on inside-out, and pin close to your leg, or however you want your jeans to fit. This is the way Kathleen from Grosgrain showed in her video, and I started doing it this way too, but everytime I bent down to put a pin in the fabric shifted and it was just getting too complicated and frustrating! Instead, I laid the jeans out flat on the floor, laid a pair of jeans that fit me on top of them, and pinned around the outline of the jeans on top. Then I just sewed where along where I had pinned and voila!
