Given that we heading into the winter months it is likely that those with bumps will be spending a lot of time in their maternity jeans. If you find the thought fairly depressing then you might well need a ‘leggie’ up. Set up by Gussy Sveaas and Louise Simkins, two gals with a shared passion for what they call ‘party pants’, their Leggie design magic works on any pair of jeans be it maternity or not. If your drawers are anything like mine there are certain to be numerous pairs of tired and neglected jeans just waiting for a makeover. Simply hand over your favourite jeans to the girls and with their specialist TLC, your jeans will be returned to you with a new lease of life. Perfect to give your jeans a bit of lift and edge for the school run.

A couple of weeks later your transformed Leggie jeans will be sent back ready to wear!
As I am no longer in maternity jeans I got my old favourite pre-preggers grey jeans Leggied-up and couldn’t be happier. I went for the Original Leggie option (gold studs on the front – see above) and they happily now work with my converse for the nursery drop to out for cocktails with the hubby. Certainly beats traipsing the shops for new jeans when you can simply revive your old.
