So, as you already know, I am self taught…so I honestly just try things and hope for the best 🙂
I won these awesome Abercrombie & Fitch corduroy pants on eBay recently…have I mentioned my husband and my new obsession with buying on eBay? We love getting things for so cheap! Anyway, I knew these were too large but I wanted to try darting so I bought them for $5!
So, I ran into a little unforeseen problem which was the little metal label on the back of the pants. But I was able to work around it. I measured the pockets as a guideline so that they would be centered with the pockets.
I folded the fabric and pinned to create the dart (make sure you do not pin the pocket!).
I then sewed along both pinned lines. This is how it looked after sewing.
Next, I cut off the excess fabric so that it would lay flat when wearing.
And here’s how they look now…no more gap in the waist!
