Hi everyone.

I'm resizing some pants but I got them from value village so they are kind of a one-of-a-kind deal. Does anybody have any tutorials or links I really don't wanna screw this up.

P.s. I already did a search.

What kind of alterations do you need to do to the pants.  That makes a big difference as to what would be done and tutorials mentioned, too big, too small, full seat, too short, redesigned?  Can you give us some more information please.

there's also an entire article about resizing/reshaping pants in the current issue of threads, might be worth checking it out.

I love threads! I'll give it a look.

Um they are too long, too wide, the crotch is dangly and the butt sags.

Kind of an allover deal hehe

thanks guys.

When you get ready to do the alterations I would suggest you do the crotch first.  It will take care of the saggy butt and may take care of some of problems with them being too wide.  The hem is the last thing to adjust.  Sometimes, depending on how much you are altering the amount needed to be shortened will change because of the way they fit on your body after everything else is done.

If you arent able to find a copy of the Threads magazine there is a short tutorial I created on the link below.  There may be others listed on craftster too.

If you need additional help pictures of the pants on you would be very helpful.
