Another way to get some updated clothing without buying foregin is by upcycling your old stuff…Thanks to pinterest, you can get lots of great ideas. I hurt my hands knitting somehow, so I messed around with old maternity clothing:

And then an old nursing gown to a layering piece: (and oh, how wonderful it was those first few months!)
