I did it, no more gap in the back of my jeans!

Altering jeans

I finally took the plunge and altered my 14 dollar denim from Old Navy. I don’t know why  all their denim leaves a gap in my derrière area but it’s just unsightly. I used my new Organ Sewing Machine Needles my mother sent me (I think mine are sz 16) and then found out I was out of the yellow jeans thread, but plugged along without it. I added two small darts under the waistband, then took in the waistband under the center back belt loop (that I had also ripped off) just to hide it. They fit so much better, and without a before wear picture and because I don’t really want to take a picture of my butt you will have to take my word for it.

Go out and make that ready to wear work for you!

    Ahhhh Ha! Darts! That would do it. I always wondered what on earth to do with this problem. Thank you for sharing your courage and knowledge…it is a hard thing to tear into jeans. I’m not sure I would be brave enough to fix all my pants that do this, but maybe it’s time I try…
