I’m new here, and although I’ve done some sewing/quilting, I’m not an experienced sewer! I’m hoping you all can help me with adjusting the waistbands on my kids jeans.
I have 2 kids, both tall. Quite frequently, I buy jeans/pants for them that fit in the legs, but end up being too big in the waist. I almost always buy elastic waistbands for them (usually from the sides, around the back), and most of the time this solves my “long legs, small waist” problem, but I have a few pair here that are brand new, and can’t be worn because they fall down! A belt is great, but I can’t send my daughter to kindergarten in a belt that she can’t un-do herself.
Anyway, like I said, the one’s I’d like to fix have elastic around the back, from side to side (make sense?). The fronts look like regular jean fronts. Is there an easy way to fix this without making big puckers in the waist?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
