I invented a pattern (that's right... run in fear!). It's hot summertime and my last child was a winter-baby so I have only one pair of shorts. That alone necessitated the invention of this pattern. I have a 44" belly right now, and this is not form-fitting, so hopefully it will fit any Medium-sized woman (pre-pregnancy) her entire 9 months. Good thing about it is I can step right into it - no need for a zipper! It was one of my first times sewing with jersey knit, and I must admit, it's rather nice.
