Maternity Jeans Hack

These maternity jeans are not just for pregnant mamas. This hack makes it so easy to transform any pair of jeans into something a little more comfy and roomy. We will warn you, though: once you put them on, you’re never going to want to take them off.



  1. Take fabric scissors and start cutting at the top of the waistband along the side seam and cut out the whole pocket.
  2. Repeat on the other side.
  3. Measure and cut elastic double the length of the pocket you just cut out.
  4. Line up the top of your elastic with the top of your jean. Make sure the elastic sides overlap a bit on the jean.
  5. Pin it in place with straight pins.
  6. Starting at the waistband take your needle and thread and sew elastic in place all the way around.
  7. Repeat on the other side.
  8. Trim extra elastic on the inside for comfort, and voila!
