I've been avoiding it my whole pregnancy, I just hate how lose it is, and I hate how jeans are made. I just hate them. And we'll now that I need a dress for my baby shower I can't find any because they're all ugly. And I wanted to get one custom made, but $300 for a dress, please!!!

I had such a battle finding maternity clothing in 1979 and 1981, that my exceptionally talented seanstress of a mother-in-law adapted several plus sized top and pants patterns to accommodate my rapidly expanding tummy (1st baby was 8 pounds 20″, and 2nd baby a whopping 10 pounds and 22 1/2″!) and produced 99% of my maternity wardrobe for me - without being asked! She made me at least a half-dozen pretty print smock-style tops, with different trims, buttons and collar/yoke designs, and solid slacks to mix-and-match/coordinate with them, all with that lovely stretchy panel in the front. I had no need or desire for skirts or dresses, and I basically live in pants.

While the 1950s continued to produce both the wrap around and shirtwaist dress for maternity clothing, the two piece separates were the big new fashion item.

To fit the new social acceptance women's clothing adapted to a looser style.
Start with maternity clothing for work; maternity dress pants paired with a chic maternity blouse or dressy tee are ideal for the office.

Add in a maternity dress or two and you have a look that goes from desk to date with ease.
