Background I am newly entering the realm of sewing clothes for myself and just as I started attempting this new hobby I got pregnant. At first I wasn't going to sew anything maternity, but I had one shirt I really liked and when I tried to find similar style shirts at the stores I couldn't. So then I decided that maybe it wouldn't be so hard to alter a pattern that I had already made and that had turned out well to make the style I liked.

These maternity yoga pants are so comfortable! They are almost guaranteed to become a cozy staple in your maternity (and beyond) wardrobe. They can be very casual for laying around the house in or just change your fabric choice and you can make a fancier pair suitable for work or going out. I wore yoga pants all throughout my fall pregnancy and wore the same ones immediately afterwards during that icky "nothing fits, but don't want to wear maternity anymore" stage that everyone loathes. It will feel great to make something for yourself knowing you'll get a lot of use out of it! The length and size of your maternity yoga pants pattern is completely adjustable as your final pattern depends entirely upon a pair you have that already fit you, and it can be adapted to fit you at any stage.
