hey everyone,
so i bought some very cool and cheap shorts today, however the waistband is too high and too tight, so does anybody know a way i can make it lower and bigger, it doesnt have to be too much bigger, just a bit. The fastening is a button and a zip.

Any help would be great, thanks! x

Find you favourite pair of shorts or jeans and measure the front and the back crotch seam and use that as a guide to find out how much to cut of from the shorts you bought.

If the difference is too much, it would be a good idea to take in the crotch and then shorten the waistband. The most you can take in from the crotch is 1".

Hope this helped!
