Julie Kundhi from julie-k shares a tutorial on her blog showing how to take in the waistband on a pair of jeans. Instead of trying to take a pinch out of the fabric, or inserting elastic in the back portion of the waistband (like the adjustable waistbands on kids’ pants), she inserts elastic all the way around the waistband. It cinches in the waist evenly without bulky seams. Brilliant! And, you can do it in just 4 steps. Get the how-to.
