Maternity “Belly Button”

Pattern

Initially tied a double knot of hat elastic to the button. Then tied another double knot approx 3.5cm along the hat elastic. Lastly tied a slip knot between the button and the other knot, so that you can slip the loop to increase or decrease the length of your Belly Button Jean Extender.

Materials

22mm (7/8″) Button from my button stash (pick a good diameter for the button hole of your pre-maternity jeans)

Approx 10cm (4″) hat elastic from Piedimonte’s

Order from chaos?

What a life saver! After giving birth I never wanted to put on maternity pants ever again, yet I still had a belly and couldn’t fit into my old jeans straight away. This cheeky little no-see button+elastic combo certainly did the trick. The slip knot is the key to making it very functional.
