Hello, this is my first post.
I have 3 pairs of trousers that are very tight on the waistband, middle aged spread, i`m afraid!
Now i`d like to jazz the waistbands up, as well as making them a little more comfy to wear.
Has anyone got any good ideas please for a middle aged mad woman,lol

you can always do the old stand by .. and take out the side seam and add in fabric .. you dont have to go super "Hippy " Bell bottoms with them .. just make a nice straight strip a few inches wide to give you that extra room .. and you could even do it in a matching color or go a lil wild and use a fun contrast
 good luck
