Patchy Panels? Please?
Posted 18 July 2009 - 02:29 PM
I need to make my pre-pregnancy clothes fit my body now...So I was thinking that I'd put panels in my shorts...The problem here is that I have no idea how to do that...Is there a method to this process or should I just wing it??

Sew together the long patchy bit you want to put in there , (making sure the top of the inserted panels is going to make your pants the right size for you--for example, if you want to add 2 inches...each should be about 1 1/2 inches, allowing extra for the 4 new seams) and then just stitch it to each side of the open seam of your pants. Hem it at each end to line up with the existing waist band and leg hem.

Sounds easy enough...Now comes the dastardly deed of figuring out how much I need to add :sigh:
