Colette Patterns shares a tutorial on their blog showing how to adjust the waist when sewing a pair of pants. Whether you need the waist to be larger or smaller, their tutorial shows how to alter the pattern to get the right fit in the waist. I’m a visual learner, so I found their diagrams very helpful for showing what needs to be done. The post is part of their Clover sewalong. Get the tutorial.
