Belly by FenigDurak Belly by FenigDurak
I'm sure you remember back to the Ep III Padme costume I made a few months back. Well, in my procrastinatorial state, I decided to finish it. I'd been stitched into the first version at the last minute, so this one has clasps, wooly nylon thread, and is all stitched up so none of the polyfill will fall out and shift like the last one.

All that's left is a sort of crotch strap so it doesn't ride up when it's being worn. I won't be taking photos of that.

So I've decided to make Padme's ep 3 tan sleeveless 'Ani you're breaking my heart' costume :D I remembered you had made a pregnant belly, but I'm wondering how you went about it? I'm definitely wanting mine to look natural, and not jsut like a pillow shoved under my outfit! Yours turned out so well! :D

It's super easy and took me about 30 minutes.

I took swimsuit lining and made a tube around my own tummy and put hooks in the back.
Then I took an oblong piece of lining and stitched it almost all the way around, leaving a small opening at the top (oblong so that it's a natural shape. Should be a little wider at the bottom than the top). Then I stuffed it with polyfill and stitched it the rest of the way closed.

Then comes the fun part. Beating the clumps polyfill into submission so that it's even.

Awesome! thanks!! :D Sure does sound easy :P I'm thinking of using some foam instead of polyfill (skips the beating part :() so that it's a little more firm. Thanks for the instructions, definitely sounds a lot easier than I was imagining :D

If you use foam, you'll likely want to shape it by cutting away. Remember that the baby will sit low, so the belly needs to be wider at the bottom. You get the idea.

Thanks! Definitely noted! That's something I've noticed about alot of people's bellies, they wear them way too high! Babies do not sit in your stomach :P Particularly when you're so close to term (I've had 3 of my workmates pregnant in the last two years, lots of study :P). Thanks heaps! :D
