    I am so impressed that your kids are on board with your tricks! You are right, sometimes you just have to dive in and try something, knowing that you will do it over if it isn’t quite right. Otherwise, I get paralyzed with perfectionism!

    That’s a great tip to use butterfly clips for measuring how much to take in! Sure beats being poked by pins, and it’s something I could do on myself (not easy to try and pin the back of your own pants).
    My daughters both have tiny waists. And one likes her jeans to be roomy in the hips, so finding a pair that fits is hard, even more so when shopping second hand. The last pair of jeans I just told her to find a pair she liked in the hips and seat, and I’d fix the waist. And that’s what we did, and she’s been very happy with them! On her pair, I put the seam on the inside, as I also had to do some sizeable darts to make them lie smooth.

    #1, I wish I could sew. #2, I wish I had waistbands that needed to be taken in!

    Just what I needed! I need to alter my son’s pants since I bought the wrong sizes and he needs them by tomorrow! Thanks for showing the images. I really need to see how it’s going to look like before altering my son’s pants. It’s going to be my first time doing this sort of things. hehe…
