Answer to question

As a reaction on my last post Besosmom2 asked me how I would change the waistband for a RTW pants that is too big.
It's a lot of trust in my knowledge (thanks for the compliment) and I would like to answer, but my knowledge on alterations is not very good. I confess to prefer making new clothes to altering existing ones.
But what I would do is try to take out the extra width in the center back, and make an extra seam in the waistband. That is how I attach a waistband anyhow, with a seam center back.

If anyone who reads this has a better solution, please mention this in the comments.

Sigrid, Dawn fron The Secret Pocket blog wrote a couple of blog entries on that type of alteration... I looked it up and here are the links: http://www.mysecretpocket.com/2007/05/taking-in-jeans-at-center-back-waist.html and http://www.mysecretpocket.com/2007/05/taking-in-jeans-at-center-back-waist-2.html

Have a nice weekend, Sigrid!

PS - I also prefer making new garments to alter existing ones!
