Maternity Shirts to Biker Shorts Upcycle

I was going through some old boxes of clothes the other day and came upon a couple of boxes of maternity clothes.  Now I have absolutely no plans of needing those again!  However, since I started sewing, I have the hardest time getting rid of old clothes because now I look at them as free fabric!

I grabbed of couple of maternity shirts out of the pile and starting thinking about what I could make.  Being maternity shirts, they have that lycra stretchiness to them so I thought that these would be perfect for biker shorts for the girls.

I decided to make them yoga style like the pants I posted about HERE.  (There are more detailed photos in that post.) That means no annoying elastic.  The top band just folds down and they are super comfy.

My girls love them.  I have made four so far and plan to keep going through the pile to make more.
