DIY 6 Maternity Garments for $40

Hey Everyone!
I'm back with a post to show you that with just $40 worth of fabric you can create some great pieces to fit into with your current maternity wardrobe..

Looking through Pinterest and other sites, I came to the conclusion that I'm going to have to make my own maternity clothes. I purchased all of the material from Wally World and the total was about $40 for 9 yards of fabric, so each garment I made was about $6.00 a piece give or take some change.
I made 2 shirts, 2 dresses, 1 skirt, and 1 jacket.
Not Bad At All..

I purposely had a plan going into Wally World knowing I needed something easy, stretchy of course and inexpensive.

First, I bought the 3 pieces for $29.31 on 10/12/16, then went again on the 15th and purchased the darker grey.

Here's a picture of all of all the pieces I made.
I had a half of yard left of my dark gray fabric and made this pencil skirt, what a cute addition to the wardrobe.

As you all remember, this was the first Maternity shirt I made.
I'm so glad I made her, she can be dressed up and down. Black slacks, legging and pencil skirt.
Plus the vertical lines accentuate my belly.

 You all remember this dress.
$6.00, not bad at all..

You also remember these 2 pieces from the last post.
$12.00 for these 2 pieces, Come on..

I had enough of the blue and gray stripe to make the cutest maternity shirt.
I just traced a maternity shirt I already had and voila'...

Next post, I'll be making something with this Beautiful Faux Crocodile Leather I purchased from my local Wally World for $8.97 per yard..
Still Brain Storming on what to make.
Stay Tuned..

Well that's it for me, I hope you can see that with just a little money and innovation, you can create something Fabulous.. Please Subscribe, Comment and/or Share my blog..

Until Next Time..

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it. I love doing this at a fraction of the cost to tell the truth I actually did this for FREE.. Yes, FREE with faux black leather I purchased from Wal-Mart years ago.
