I want to alter a cotton shirt to fit better around the waist. Do I take in a bit along the side seams only or should I take in a bit on the darts running up from the hem too? Or will it be better to just use a belt? I just want the shirt to have a bit better shape -not so boxy.
I hope someone can give me some advice as my brain has shut down today Angry

Pinch and pin is the way to go! Put on the shirt inside out and try both variations you mention - pinch the fabric and pin till it looks right then carefully try on the shirt right way out. Whichever looks best is the one you go with!
