I just found this on craft gawker, it really isnt for "maternity" but would totally work on accenting a baby bump and a neat idea for some old tee shirts (even steal some from hubby if ours get too small)

I wonder what the neckline and holes will do after being washed a few times?

If you get a good quality shirt, the neckline will probably stay about how you leave it, but make sure not to make it huge. Trick: along the neckline, use both hands and pinch about an inch apart, then pull. Repeat along the neckline (and any other cuts on arms or the bottom) to make a gentle ruffle!

This is cute, and looks perfect for comfort! I might raid the thrift store later!

There are some super-cute reconstructions of button-down shirts, too. I was thinking that they'd be cute enough to wear as non-maternity, then as your belly gets bigger, start opening the buttons. I'll see if I can find some of them!

That's a simple tank top that can be cinched early on, then let out as you go along, eventually unbuttoning if you so please.
