Steps on How to make a maternity skirt
A maternity skirt is an essential item that every pregnant woman should have in her closet. The following steps will provide you with a general idea of how to make your maternity skirt:
Step 1. You can use the hem of one of your old skirts for this project and simply cut it off (and save yourself some money!).
Step 2. Measure around the widest part of your hips or wherever you plan on wearing your new skirt. Add at least six inches so there’s room for movement, as well as growth during pregnancy. For example, if you measure 40″ around, add 12″. If measuring isn’t something you want to do right now conveniently write down 41″.
Step 3. With these measurements, take out a yardstick or ruler and measure from the floor to the hip, which you will need to fold up your new skirt.
Step 4. Next, cut two strips of fabric with these measurements (one for the front and one for the back). If using an old shirt or dress – cut out a large square instead of a strip.
Hem each end by folding over once (or twice if necessary) then sew along the edge until it is completely closed off. Then hem all four corners like any other rectangle garment would be done.
Step 5. Fold in half lengthwise so that right sides are together; pin edges together on either side of open-end leaving room at the top for elastic waistband (¾” to one inch depending upon how tight fitting you want skirt); sew entire perimeter including opening left at the top for elastic.
Step 6. Sew two rows of stitching along each side within the seam allowance, turn inside out and press seams flat with your fingers; sew a single row of stitching just outside the edge to prevent fraying (if desired).
How do you use belted sanitary pads?
Belted sanitary pads are worn by pinning one end of the belt to your panties and then wrapping or twisting the pad around it. Belted pads can be used for light, medium, or heavy flow days depending on how many you use at once. They’re also great for overnight protection because they don’t move around as other types do.
You will need several belted sanitary napkins before doing this though to ensure that you have enough absorbency in case there is any leakage; additionally, these products tend to be bulkier than their non-belted counterparts so bear this in mind when planning outfits etcetera!
If you want something without wings but still provides security throughout the day try our Maxi which is a great option for its long length and width.

The pad has adhesive wings that keep the pad in place during movement.
The Maxi has a long, wide shape which provides better coverage and protection for heavy flow days.
Belted Long Pads are perfect for overnight use but they’re also great to wear throughout the day too! The new adhesive wings ensure comfort while providing security against leaks; it’s worth noting though that these products tend to be bulkier than their non-belted counterparts so bear this in mind when planning outfits etcetera!

How can I wear my maternity pads?
Maternity pads are very similar to the regular period sanitary pad, so you can use them in the same way. However, maternity pads have a larger wing and longer back than regular ones which makes it easier for other people to see that they’re meant as “period protection” rather than just “feminine hygiene product”.
Maternity pads are made up of cotton or synthetic material, which absorbs the menstrual blood. They come with an adhesive strip that holds them in place on your underwear and prevents leakage to give you complete peace of mind during your period.
Maternity pads offer different degrees of protection depending on how heavy a flow you have; they can be thin and barely noticeable or thick and extremely absorbent.
The other kind of pad designed for periods is maxi pads, which women use during their periods to prevent leaks. Maxi pads come in different sizes: thin-absorbency, regular (medium) and long (for overnight).
They also have adhesive strips on the back that help hold them in place; however, these kinds of pads tend not to be as thick as maternity ones since they’re meant only to guard against occasional leaking rather than heavy flow like anaemia.
You can choose from plastic or cotton material. Plastic is more waterproof but heavier while cotton tends to be lighter but less discreet when covered by maternity clothes due to its transparency sometimes showing through pants/skirts etc., depending on how light or dark your skin is.
