Andy Maternity Trousers – styleARC


There are very few maternity trouser patterns out there to pick from but we really liked the offering from styleARC, these simple trousers come complete with a stretch tummy piece to grow with you. They are a simple slim fitting trouser with a fake fly and yoke on the back, to help with fit. These are designed to be made in a stretch fabric like a ponte but you could make them in a stretch cotton or something similar.
