I had a baby last year and I still have the maternity clothes. Some of them are in good enough condition to pass on to someone else, but some have stretched out tops from my previously stretched out body. I need more summer skirts, though, so I've taken the jersey material dresses and cut off the tops of the dresses to make easy skirts with just a bit of fold-over elastic. And the skirts look fine! Not pretty enough to photograph, but perfectly functional and my husband thought I'd bought new clothes! Hoorah!
