Maternity Shirt Re-Fashion

Luvinthemommyhood had a great maternity tutorial post that inspired me to re-fashion one of my shirts. The tutorial comes from Homemade by Jill. I have this very ill-fitting shirt my husband bought me at the end of my last pregnancy. It fit much better then (I was HUGE), but ever since has just been too big. I decided to give it a try.
Unflattering shirt (and picture of myself)

Side shot.
There really isn't much shape, and it makes me look bigger.
The shirt before

Take elastic and zig-zag stitch it to the side seam of shirt.
The tighter you pull the elastic the more it will bunch up.

Finished! I will be re-doing this shirt as I ran out of pink thread and the white thread i used on the other side is showing through (my tension was off). BUT you can get the idea of how doing that added a little more shape to the shirt.
P.S. here I am a little over 32 weeks.
