My kid is tall and skinny. She has no butt. Any bottoms that are long enough for her are much too big in the waist.
However, I found a quick and easy way around that…
How to make legging waistbands smaller
- Cut a small slit in the interior fabric.
- Thread a smaller elastic alongside the bigger one.
- Pull to desired size, then knot or sew.
- A few stitches to sew the cut shut — and you have perfect fit!
Voilà! It’s easy, and literally takes five minutes to fix.
