Simple Upcycled Maternity Shirt

In my quest to spruce up my maternity wardrobe, I did a super quick upcycle of a regular T-shirt to make it maternity.

This tee began as a two sizes too large thrifted find (the same style I would normally buy from Target), and with a little added ruching to the sides, became a more flattering maternity shirt.

Homemade by Jill has a tutorial here, which was my inspiration, but I used elastic threading in my bobbin (instead of regular elastic), just like Dana’s ruched leggings tutorial here.

Five minutes for a $2 maternity shirt?  Yes, please!
