Green Cove Sprin...
Seperate the waistband at the top.
Take it in the required amount. In this case, we need to remove 1 1/2" per side, so we are taking a 3/4" deep seam. This will result in a waistband seam which falls slightly forward of the pants side seam, but in this case, a belt will be worn, and I didn't want the two bulky seams to abutt. If you must match the seams, you will want to remove 1 1/2 from the back, and none from the front at each side.
Next, press, pin and sew the waistband together and also back on to the jeans.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
