Recycle and Re-use clothing? A big yes! Especially maternity wear. Now that I am four months pregnant and not fitting into my regular clothing time to go shopping. But wait, before you spend a fortune on new clothing that in reality you'll only be wearing for another five months ask friends if they're willing to donate any of their old maternity pieces.
One of my co-workers was generous to give me a box of maternity clothing.
Unfortunately not all of it fit or suited my style, however, I picked items that I liked and others that could be altered.
The above jeans were wide-leg jeans and looked like floods, as they were too short.
I didn't touch the length, took them to my local seamstress and asked to get them tapered in.
(Wish I had taken a before picture)
These GAP maternity jeans are now customized to my size!
Try it with other pieces.
