decreasing waist on ready-made slacks
Hi everyone, and Happy New Year! I’m writing for advice on how to decrease the waist (by 1/2 inch or so) on purchased slacks and jeans. Even petite slacks end up hanging too low in the crotch (I wear a size 8) as the waists are a bit too big for me. The slacks I buy don’t usually have a waist band, they do have a side zipper. The techniques may be different for jeans, as the denim fabric is thicker and there are more layers with a waist band. Thank you!
