Tutorial: Take in a pants waistband

If you’re in a hurry, you can quickly take in the waistband on a pair of pants by just taking a tiny little pinch in off the side – through the waistband and all.  It’ll do the job in a hurry, but it’ll be lumpy and unfinished.  If you want to take in the waist without the tell-tale lumpy seam allowance, you’ll need to remove the waistband first.  It’s more work, but the finished product is much nicer.  Liz from Cotton & Curls shows how you can do it.  Go to her tutorial.
