Alter The Waist

We grow our children small around here. For instance my 10 year old is currently wearing a size 6. My 5 year old is wearing a size 2T. As a result, I have become very good at taking in pants. Because tape, staples, and safety pins can only take you so far.

Here's a quick view of how it can be done.

This pair of shorts had 4 layers of stitching. 
That's 4 layers of tedious stitch removal.  Boo!

Cut out the length you do not need.  I removed 2".

Overlap the elastic and stitch with a zig zag stitch so it allows streching.
Replace the stitching.  Done!

The end result! Busy boys in fun parks makes it difficult to take pictures.

Yep. I'll say it again: Mom would be proud.
