I read a tip in the latest Threads about how to take in the waistband on jeans. It sounded good, then I looked at my jeans. The article said to take in at the center back seam of the waistband–but there isn’t one–and ease the back yoke fabric back into the waistband. I need to alter more than just the waistband, though, or I’d have a bubble above my butt. I don’t want to take out the felled seam center back and resew it, leaving an obviously new seam. It would be nice to adjust the side seams, too, but that seems like I’m just asking for trouble.
If anyone has done this successfully or has ideas, thanks so much. I read another thread about using sandpaper to wear seams, and I’ve heard about dabbing bleach to do the same. What do you think?
