so over the summer, i gained some weight and when fall came, i shopped for jeans accordingly. since then, i have lost about 10lbs, mostly in my hips. so now im stuck with a bunch of jeans one size too big. they fit in the legs and well enough in the butt but the waist is just too big. is it possible to bring in the waist without making my pants look funkified? thanks for any ideas!

Not really, unfortunately. You can unstitch the waistband from the butt-fabric & add some darts to bring the waist in, but then you have to also shorten the waistband. In my experience unless you're taking out 6" or more from the waist of the pants in question, its just not worth the effort. Easier to just use a belt to bring things in a bit...

I think it is possible, as long as you're not taking in too much.
