Easy fix for a gaping waistband

I purchased a pair of cute little capris from JCPenney not long ago, but I didn’t like how the waistband gaped in the back. One option was to take them to my tailor to have them taken in, but I thought I’d experiment first.

I unstitched small sections of the waistband to allow for a ribbon to slide through. Then, attaching the end of the ribbon to a large safety pin, I threaded it through the waistband.


The result: pants that fit throughout and don’t gape at the waist. (At no extra cost – yay!)
