Many of you know that I am pregnant and getting more pregnant by the day. A few months ago I was at Old Navy and found a great deal on some jeans. Well I was HUGE with my son and I thought that I might get as big as I did with him. So I bought some pants that were too big and thought I would grow into them. I am happy to report I still don't fit in them. But they are some of the only pants that I have. I needed to do something!
So I went to work. I thought that I would show you want I did. Now a huge disclaimer. I am a beginner sewer and it isn't that great! You will get the point and I am sure that most of you will do better then I did.Let get started!
I started by cutting a piece of elastic. Then pin it in place.
I started sewing and then you need to pull it super tight! I might as tight as you can or it won't work very well. I learned that on the other pair that I did.
Do that to both sides. Make sure that you have a needle that will sew through denim or it will break. Plus don't sew your belt loop. It will look like this.
I told you I wasn't that great. It was my first time! Here is what it looks like on the back.
Another thing I thought of after I got done doing this is you could make a small cut in the denim and hide the elastic. Either way it works great!
