Monkey is skinny. I’ve mentioned this before. I also showed you how to make belts for your skinny baby. But what do you do when their pants don’t have belt loops?
Oh.My.Goodness. This is so easy it doesn’t even deserve a tutorial. But, I’ll do it anyway.
Keep in mind that you can do this with any elastic waistband. You can also do it with suit pants and dress pants.
Measure your victim’s waist and figure out how much of the waistband needs to come off. Take the pants and fold them on the back seam…you know…the “crack” of the pants. Measure what needs to come off and mark it with a ruler and a fabric marker.
Mark it so you gradually end up with the original “crack seam.”
Sew along that line.
Then zig-zag around it so your fabric won’t fray.
Or serge it:
…whichever you prefer. If you serged, then you’re done. If not, then now is the time to cut off the excess fabric.
See how easy?
…and you can’t even tell!
…well, maybe a little at the waistband, but who’s going to be looking that closely?
If they do, then they’ll probably just be impressed with your sewing skills! :)
