Maternity Denim Jeans

Case 3: Transform a denim jean pregnancy, with an elastic waistband at the front

Maternity Denim Jeans

This method is ideal if you have a denim high waist, you can not close the stomach. However, the transformation is final because you have to cut the original belt jeans, so this is a good way to reuse jeans that you no longer wear. Here’s how.

Try the jeans

  • Put on your jeans.
  • Reassemble the zipper to a height that allows you to be comfortable in jeans and donning power or remove the jeans while leaving the closed fly.
  • Close the fly to this place with a safety pin.
  • If you can not close the zipper, leave it open.
  • Remove your jeans, and lay it flat on a flat surface.

Cut the jeans

  • With a pair of scissors, cut the zipper completely.
  • With a pin, a tailor’s chalk or a fabric marker, mark on the fly of the jeans, 1 cm below the safety pin.

Council: If you could not close the fly, mark 1 cm below the fly.

  • Using a rule curve or a large plate, draw a semicircle in front of the jeans, which starts from a side seam of the jeans and ends on the seam of the opposite side, through the mark 1 cm.
  • If this semicircle passes over jeans rivets or buttons, slightly shift the curve down not to pass on these.
  • With sewing scissors, cut the front of the jean along this semicircle, and set it aside: it will be the boss in the seatbelt.

Cut the belt

  • Pick up a piece of elastic fabric, like jersey with at least 5% elastane stretch or measuring at least:
    • The width of the jeans semicircle + 4 cm.
    • 2 times the height of the semicircle + 4 cm.
  • Iron your fabric and lay it flat on a table.
  • Fold the fabric in half width and pin the edges of the fabric to hold the two layers in place.
  • Take the jeans half-circle you cut earlier, and lay on the fabric, lining the waistband of jeans on the crease of the upper fabric.
  • Pin the half-circle in stretch fabric, and using a chalk tailor or textile felt, trace the contours of the semicircle.
  • Dépinglez the semicircle, and draw 2 cm seam allowances along the contours of the semicircle, then cut two layers of fabric along the new route (without cutting the top, where the fabric is folded).

Sew the belt

  • Put on a special stretch needle on your sewing machine.
  • Thread the sewing machine with the same color wire your seatbelt.
  • If your machine has a whip stitches, turn your machine on this point. Otherwise, leave the machine on a zigzag stitch.
  • Sew the whip stitch or zigzag stitch the edges of the semicircle, without sewing up (the folded edge).
  • Sewing on the fabric edge, beginning and ending with a few breakpoints.
  • Be sure to take the two fabric layers of the belt in the seam.
  • Cut flush son, and iron your seams.

Sew the zipper jeans

If you could not close the fly and you have cut the jeans below it, skip this step.

  • Use a special needle jeans on your sewing machine.
  • Thread the sewing machine with a thread of a close to your jean color.

Note: you will find in the special sewing haberdashery son jeans, which are very strong and reproduce the hues of colors of jeans.

  • Set the machine on a standard straight stitch.
  • Your jeans on the place, sew the zipper to hold it shut.
  • Sew in the existing sewing the nearest fly from the edge.
  • Start and finish sewing a few breakpoints.
  • Cut flush son and iron the seam.

Assemble the belt jeans

  • Fold and pin to the inside edges of the jeans where you’ve cut the semicircle of about 5 mm and 1 cm maximum.
  • Iron these folds to flatten them.
  • Keep the needle and thread for jeans on the sewing machine.
  • Set the machine on a classic zigzag stitch.
  • Slide the belt holding in the opening half-circle of jeans, and align the top of the retaining strap (the folded edge) with the top of the waistband of the jeans.
  • Pin the belt holding the jeans, all along the semicircular opening.
  • Sew the belt jeans, with a zigzag pattern:
    • Start sewing at one of the side seams of the jeans / belt.
    • Start by sewing a few breakpoints.
    • Sew around the semicircle on the jeans, as close as possible edge.
    • End your sewing by some breakpoints.
  • Cut flush son and iron your sewing.
  • Your maternity jeans with elastic waistband at the front is finished.
