Correct way to handle simple alteration?
I think I know how to do this, but I just want to check to see if there are any good tips out there . . . .
My daughter’s jazz recital is coming up and her costume includes a pair of (hideous :>) ) elastic-waisted knit pants that are WAY too big for her. I thought I would
1. undo the stitching for the elastic casing at the center back
2. undo the stitching at the center back seam and take in the extra material there in a V-shape.
3. cut and restitch the elastic to fit at the waist
4. resew the casing
Is this the right way to go about this? Got any tips?
Thanks and happy sewing,
